Choi Hung is a station on the Hong Kong MTR Kwun Tong Line. The station is named after the nearby Choi Hung Estate, a public housing estate. The station's livery is navy blue with stripes of the colours of the rainbow, as Choi Hung in Cantonese means rainbow.

Third track

Although there are four platforms at the station, only platforms 1 and 4 are fully functional. There are three tracks that run through the station, with platforms 2 and 3 sharing the third track that is located in the middle of the station. The third track is primarily used as a siding, and it leads to the Kowloon Bay MTR depot, located just east of Choi Hung station.

Public art

The Grace of Ballerinas, a collection of three bronze sculptures by the Chinse artist Yin Zhixin, has been installed on the station concourse since February 2009.[1][2]
