Station Name[edit]

It was originally designated as Shenzhen East Railway Station in initial government announcements. However this former name has now been used to rename Buji Railway Station as of December 2012. In February 2013, the name of Shenzhen Xincheng Station was adopted by the local railway bureau,[3] however this was dismissed by national railway authorities in October, 2013. This was due to existence of another Xincheng Station on the Chinese rail network. In order to avoid any repetition of names and to reflect localities better, it was deemed that the new station would be named Shenzhen Pingshan Railway Station, after the district of Shenzhen that it is located in.[4]

Structure[edit]

The station features four high level platforms served by eight tracks. Keeping with current modern practice in Chinese High Speed Rail Stations, two large open squares will feature on both sides of station. The southern square, besides being a large open public space. The Northern Square will provide access for private vehicles, long-distance and local bus services.[5]

Service[edit]

Once fully open and with a designed speed of 250 kilometers per hour, the Xiamen-Shenzhen High Speed Railway is expected to shorten the travel time between Shenzhen and Xiamen to three hours, eight hours shorter than the current trip. Ticket prices for the high-speed line are expected to be about 190 yuan (US$31) for a first-class seat and 160 yuan for a second-class seat.
