Extracts:

 

The Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link is a new railway line which will link Hong Kong with the National High Speed railway network and will further enhance Hong Kong’s strategic position as the southern gateway to Mainland China.

 

The Link will provide frequent services from a new terminus in Hong Kong to Shibi in the suburbs of Guangzhou, via Futian and Longhua in Shenzhen and Humen in Dongguan. At Shibi the Link will connect to the national express rail network which will provide long haul services to other major cities in the Mainland.  Also from Shibi, a separate rail link will take passengers into the centre of Guangzhou.
