Futian Station (Chinese: 福田站) is a station under construction of Guangshen'gang XRL. It is located between Fuzhong 3 Road and Shen Nan Rd, in Futian District, Shenzhen, Guangdong, People Republic of China. Once completed it will become the largest high speed railway station built completely underground. This allows for a location in the geographical heart of Futian District, Shenzhen. It will offer connections to Kowloon in Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Changsha, Wuhan, Zhengzhou and Beijing.
This station will serve as the terminus of many high speed intercity services from across Mainland China. Through high speed trains will continue to Hong Kong, with a high speed commuter service linking the Futian CBD with Kowloon.
Cross-border services to Hong Kong will have a travel time of only 15 minutes, quicker than the 45 minute journey via the Hong Kong MTR. High speed rail services by 'G' numbered Intercity trains will travel to Beijing and Xi'an in a time of about 9 hours.
All other Shenzhen's trains are served elsewhere. Less expensive D-series trains to Guangzhou, as well as various "conventional" trains to destinations throughout China leave from Shenzhen Railway Station; there is also a much less busy Shenzhen West Railway Station. Shenzhen East Railway Station opened in December 2012 to handle regional services and connected to Shenzhen North on the soon to be completed Hangzhou–Fuzhou–Shenzhen High-Speed Railway.
