Railway Express

trainOn May 9, an operation agreement concerning the development and construction of the Dongguan railway system was signed between the Dongguan government and Guangzhou Railway (Group) Corporation (GRC), a government-owned company in charge of Guangdong, Hunan and Hainan’s railway system. Gaining GRC’s support, Dongguan will have a third customs and immigration check allowing through passage to Hong Kong at Humen’s high-speed train station in addition to the existing Changping and the under-construction Shilong station. As for the confusing names of Dongguan’s five railway stations, oft complained about by rail travelers, the GRC will be actively involved in procedures to rename these stations.
