Timetable of Shanghai – Kowloon Through Train changed
 
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) announced today that passengers on Shanghai-Kowloon Through Train will enjoy greater convenience with effect from 1 July 2006 when the total journey time will be shortened by one hour.
A KCRC spokesman said the reduction in journey time was made possible following the completion of improvement works along the Zhejiang-Jiangxi line on the Mainland. As a result, the arrival and departure time of the Shanghai-Kowloon Through Train at Shanghai will be changed, while those at Hung Hom will remain unchanged.
