There are 7 platforms in MTR Hung Hum Station since its official opening. The outside wall in the north is marked with P1 to P7. Platform 1 and Platform 4 are exclusive to the east line while Platform 2 and Platform 3 are for the west line. Platform 5 and Platform 6 are exclusive to inter-city through trains coming from and going to mainland China, so they belong to out-of-bounds area. As for Platform 7, it is only for freight transport and not opened for passengers.
With the merging of metro and railway and the approach of the centenary of Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation, most of the east line stations have been renovated. Among them, the platforms of the Hung Hum Station not only had their floors renovated, but were also equipped with new white chairs. After the Kowloon south railway was opened to traffic, many advanced LCD screens were installed on the platforms. They enabled the passengers to know whether they should go across the opposite platform or go through the Hall to transfer for trains leaving sooner. Passengers should also pay attention to the fact that the number of train carriages on the east railway is different from that of trains on the west line. Passengers entering the station on the second or third carriage of trains of the east line should go near the center of the platforms to transfer to the west line.
What is worth mentioning here is that there are washrooms in both of these two island-styled platforms. It is among the few stations that have washrooms on their platforms at present (the others are the University Station, Xin’ao Station and Disney Station). This can be called a special feature of the station.
There are 14 exits in the station distributed in various station halls. At each exit stand direction boards indicating buildings and infrastructures around the exit.
