Dongguan to add railway hub

Dongguan will cooperate with the Hong Kong MTR Corporation to plan and construct the Binhaiwan Bay Station at the Shajiao Peninsula of the Binhaiwan Bay Area, integrating three types of rail transportation: high-speed railway, intercity railway and city metro. 

The new station will be modeled after the West Kowloon Station in Hong Kong, allowing passengers to transfer seamlessly among the three rail transportation methods. 

Three metro lines from three cities will stop by Binhaiwan Bay Station, including Line 2 of Dongguan Metro, Line 20 of Shenzhen Metro, and Line 22 of Guangzhou Metro. The metro network will connect Dongguan directly with the Shenzhen Airport New Town. The city centers of Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Guangzhou will be only one-hour away from the Binhaiwan Bay Station in Dongguan, allowing passengers to travel to Shenzhen in 6 minutes, Guangzhou in 35 minutes, and Hong Kong in 40 minutes from the new station. 

Binhaiwan Bay Station is also planning to connect with the Zhongshan-Nansha-Humen Intercity Railway and the Second Guangzhou-Shenzhen High-speed Railway.
