Temporary Guangzhou-Kowloon Through Train timetable
 
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) was informed by the Guangzhou Railway (Group) Corporation (GRC) that to facilitate the construction of the 4th track between Guangzhou and Shenzhen in the Mainland after the Spring Travel Peak, the Guangzhou-Kowloon Through Train (GKTT) timetable for some Mainland stations will be temporarily revised from 11 March to 17 April for the purpose of providing passengers with a more accurate schedule.
A KCRC spokesman said that the departure and arrival times of GKTT in Hung Hom on the Hong Kong side would remain unchanged. However, there may be changes in departure and arrival times in Guangzhou East and Dongguan stations. Passengers are reminded to arrive earlier in accordance with the revised timetable.
According to the GRC, the revised timetable is to accommodate temporary speed restrictions imposed on a number of sections of the Guangshen Line to facilitate the construction works. Consequently, train journey time would be extended by about 10 to 20 minutes per trip.
The spokesman reminds passengers travelling to these two destinations to take note of the revised temporary timetable (Annex I and II).
KCRC has uploaded the information at the Corporate internet and put up notices outside the Immigration Halls at Hung Hom Station. Regular announcements are made at the passengers’ waiting lounge to inform passengers of the latest situation. The Intercity Passenger Services Hotline 2947 7888 will be enhanced to answer passenger enquiries.
KCRC thanks passengers for their understanding and tolerance, and apologizes for the inconvenience caused.
