Description:
Heng Fa Chuen is a station on the Hong Kong MTR Island&nbsp;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.
