Po Lam (Chinese: 寶琳) is an MTR
MTR
station located in Po Lam, in the New Territories
New Territories
of Hong Kong. It is the northern terminus of the Tseung Kwan O Line. The next station on the line is Hang Hau. Although the station is at ground level, it is covered, though not completely sealed, from the outside. The station's main entrance is on Mau Yip Road, where five pedestrian footbridges link the station to a public transport interchange for ground transport. It is possible to directly access Metro City and The Pinnacle from the concourse of the station. Another footbridge crosses Po Fung Road and enables direct access from Po Lam Estate, Yan Ming Court and Verbena Heights.

The concourse

Exit C

Unlike most MTR
MTR
stations, the concourse, gates and platform are at the same level; and there is only one platform from which trains depart, in the same direction as they arrived. This necessitates the halting of trains from Hang Hau
Hang Hau
midway between the stations while a train currently at the station departs. At the same time, trains arriving at Po Lam stay for a much shorter time before departing, when compared to other MTR
MTR
terminals. The single-track design (and the consequent lengthened train turnback time) limits the maximum train service frequency of the Tseung Kwan O
Tseung Kwan O
Line.[1][2] The original design of the station was to have two tracks sharing an island platform, and a concourse above the platforms. However, the MTRC, on the advice of the contractors, decided that the concourse would replace what was going to be the second track and part of the island platform. The MTRC decided on the current layout after realising that it would be unlikely that the Tseung Kwan O
Tseung Kwan O
Line would to be extended beyond Po Lam, as well as to save construction costs. With the current layout, passengers can enter or exit the station from the platform in less than one minute. Just south of the station (but north of the point where the line narrows from two to one track), there is a siding that splits from the line.[3] Entrances/exits[edit]
