The contract encompasses construction from Tai Wai on the Ma On Shan Line to the West Rail line, a section which includes seven stations and includes key interchanges with East Rail at Tai Wai and the Kwun Tong Line at Diamond Hill. Work on the project is scheduled to be completed in 2018.

An additional 6km section between Hung Hom and Admiralty on Hong Kong Island is planned as part of the Shatin-Central Link and is scheduled to open in 2021, at which point an estimated 1.1 million passengers are expected to use the extended services.
