Waiting Hall for Shenzhen East Railway Station

Shenzhen East Railway Station (Chinese: 深圳东站; pinyin: Shēnzhèn dōng Zhàn), formerly Pu Kut Station and Buji Station (布吉站), serves the town of Buji, Shenzhen, in Guangdong, China. It is a stop on the Guangzhou–Shenzhen Railway.

The station opened in 1911 as a freight and Level 3 passenger station (三等站) on the Kowloon–Canton Railway. Initial renovation works commenced in 2004. The station building was demolished in April 2008, and work began on the construction of a new passenger hub that was completed by the end of October 2012. In September 2012, it was announced that the new station would be named "Shenzhen East Station".[1] The Shenzhen East name was originally assigned to a proposed Longgang Station on the Xiamen–Shenzhen Railway currently under construction.


The station is a complex serving 3 separate railway lines (2 high-speed lines and 1 conventional rail line). The completed station building features 3 ticket halls and a waiting hall of 7,100m². There are 6 north-south platforms serving 11 tracks on the main platform level. Separate east-west platforms will serve trains on the Xiamen-Shenzhen High-Speed Railway (u/c). The station is adjacent to Buji Metro Station, served by two Shenzhen Metro lines, the Longgang Line and Huanzhong Line.[2]

Train services[edit]

The new Shenzhen East will handle middle- and long-distance, lower-speed trains, including trains to Sichuan, Hunan, Hubei, Jiangxi and Anhui provinces. Shenzhen Railway Station will be the main hub for intercity trains in Guangdong Province, for example, and its current long-distance trains to Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Guilin and Fuzhou will be relocated to Shenzhen East in the future. 4 tracks are reserved for the Guangzhou–Shenzhen Railway high-speed services.
