History

This stop was originally named "Lung Mun" (龍門) as it is located at Lung Mun Road. Later, the section of Lung Mun Road near the stop was renamed to Ming Kum Road, so the stop was renamed to "Technical Institute" (工業學院) as it is next to Tuen Mun Technical Institute. The stop was renamed again to the current "Tsing Wun" in 2003 after Tuen Mun Technical Institute was renamed to Hong Kong Institute of Vocational Education (Tuen Mun) in 1999. [1]
