Modification to Tsim Sha Tsui station involved upgrading station facilities and concourse layout to facilitate access from the East Tsim Sha Tsui station via its pedestrian links.

After the merger, the MTR network included three more lines—East Rail line, West Rail line, and Ma On Shan line (now the Tuen Ma line)—as well as the light rail network and Guangdong through train to Guangzhou.

It was designed to suburban rail standards similar to that of KCR's first line, now the East Rail line, anticipating freight and intercity services to Mainland China, although the latter role was ultimately superseded by the Guangzhou–Shenzhen–Hong Kong Express Rail Link Hong Kong section as part of the China Railway High-speed network.

On 16 August 2009, the Kowloon Southern Link from Nam Cheong to East Tsim Sha Tsui station was opened.

There are six interchange stations: Tai Wai and Hung Hom with the East Rail line, Diamond Hill and Ho Man Tin with the Kwun Tong line, Nam Cheong with the Tung Chung line and Mei Foo with the Tsuen Wan line.

The line then heads southwest into a tunnel after the station and descending underground through East Tsim Sha Tsui and Austin stations (the former having originally being served by the East Rail line, and the track heading northwards through the latter), before returning to ground level (though still fully covered) at Nam Cheong station.

Kowloon Tong station
