Location within the MTR system

Ngau Tau Kok is one of three stations to be located above ground on the line, the others being Kwun Tong and Kowloon Bay. The majority of passengers use Ngau Tau Kok station to commute.

Due to difficulties in installing platform screen doors (PSDs) in above ground stations, the MTR decided not to install PSDs in this station, instead installing automatic platform gates (APGs) on the station's platforms in 2011.

HistoryEdit

Ngau Tau Kok station opened when the Modified Initial System opened in 1 October 1979.

Station layoutEdit

Platforms 1 and 2 share the same island platform, and the east parts are curved, so the gap between platform and train is large.
