Chinese 杏花邨
Literal meaning Almond Flower Estate

Heng Fa Chuen is a station on the Hong Kong MTR Island Line. It is the only station on the line that is at ground level. The MTR depot for the Island Line, the Chai Wan Depot, is located northeast to the station. The station is located in the heart of the Heng Fa Chuen housing development. The livery of the station is Orange Red. Heng Fa Chuen is one of two stations on the Island Line that has no platform screen doors. The other station without such doors is the adjacent Chai Wan terminus which is located above ground. It is one of two Island Line stations that have opposing side platforms, as opposed to island platforms or side platforms on different levels of a station. (The other one is Sheung Wan Station.)

Before the opening of the Tseung Kwan O Line and Ma On Shan Line, Heng Fa Chuen Station was the easternmost railway station in Hong Kong. It remains the easternmost station on Hong Kong Island.

History

Before opening on May 31, 1985, names proposed for this station included: North Chai Wan (北柴灣站), Agonar or A Kung Ngam (阿公岩站), Chai Wan Quay (柴灣碼頭站), and Pak Sha Wan (白沙灣站). It was after the opening of phase one (of the Heng Fa Chuen development) that prompted the MTR to change the name to Heng Fa Chuen. This station was primarily one for construction workers in the early 1980s, during the construction of Heng Fa Chuen.
