Xiamen North Railway Station (simplified Chinese: 厦门北站; traditional Chinese: 廈門北站; pinyin: Xiàmén-běi Zhàn) is a railway station located in Houxi Town, Jimei District, Xiamen City, Fujian Province, China, on the Fuxia Railway which operated by Nanchang Railway Bureau, Ministry of Railways of the PRC.


History[edit]

The construction of the New Xiamen Station (simplified Chinese: 厦门新站; traditional Chinese: 廈門新站; pinyin: Xiàmén-xīn Zhàn) started on July 10, 2007.[3] New Xiamen Station was renamed Xiamen North Station on April 9, 2010.[4] Xiamen North Station opened on April 26, 2010.[5]

As New Xiamen Station (located on the mainland, in Jimei District) was renamed Xiamen North Station, the station previously known as Xiamen North Station (located in the northern part of Xiamen Island, in Huli District, near the airport) was renamed Gaoqi Railway Station (高崎站). Gaoqi Railway Station is still in operation, as the terminal station for several comparatively low-speed (K-, L-, and no-letter series) trains.[6] The two stations are located on the opposite sides of the narrow strait separating Xiamen Island from the mainland, and should not be confused.

First line of Xiamen Metro will connect Xiamen North Railway Station with island part of city in 2017. Lines 3 and 5 will come to the station later also.
