Zhuhai railway station (Chinese: 珠海站; pinyin: Zhūhǎi Zhàn), also called Gongbei station (拱北站), is an elevated station of the Guangzhou–Zhuhai intercity railway (Guangzhu ICR). It is located in the Gongbei Subdistrict (jiedao) of Xiangzhou in Zhuhai, Guangdong, China, besides the Gongbei Port and parallel to the border between mainland China and Macau. The station is the southern terminus of the Guangzhou–Zhuhai intercity railway and the northern terminus of the Zhuhai–Zhuhai Airport intercity railway.

History[edit]

The station entered service on 31 December 2012, behind its target completion date of 31 July 2012,[1][2] opening along with three other stations that extended the line to downtown Zhuhai from the temporary terminus at the Zhuhai North railway station.

China Railway announced that a train between Beijing West and Zhuhai would enter service since 27 November 2015. As the first interprovincial train from Zhuhai, this train will run as D923 from Beijing to Zhuhai, and D924 on the return trip.[3]

The station was expanded to accommodate the Zhuhai–Zhuhai Airport intercity railway, of which operations began on 18 August 2020.[4][5]
