The extension of platform 2 with former KCR livery

Markers were provided on the northbound platform following the opening of Lok Ma Chau station. Two queues, blue and green, are set up at the boarding areas. The blue queues are for passengers travelling to Lo Wu, while the green queues are for those travelling to Lok Ma Chau. Platform 1 is the termination platform of northbound trains after Lo Wu and Lok Ma Chau boundary crossings have closed for the day, and so platform 2 (southbound platform) is the only platform for boarding.
