Guangzhou to Open New Metro Connection to High-Speed Rail LinePosted: 08/8/2014 11:30 am
After the transportation lines are connected and Qingsheng Station is finished, a trip on Guangzhou’s Metro Line 4 from University Town to the high-speed rail will take only half an hour, reports Guangzhou Daily.
Qingsheng Station on Line 4 is currently Guangzhou’s first operational metro station to undergo the necessary modifications, and is expected to be fully operational by December 2015. The station will be the second high-speed rail interchange, after Guangzhou South Railway Station.
The fare from Qingsheng Station to Shenzhen will be RMB 49.5, and the trip is expected to take only 28 minutes under optimal conditions.
There are currently 13 high-speed trains traveling between Guangzhou South Railway station and Shenzhen. The plans for an inter-provincial high-speed rail connecting Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Hong Kong were recently delayed.
