New timetable for through trains
 
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) announced that upon the nation-wide railway timetable adjustment resulting from the speed enhancement on the Mainland railways, with effect from 18 April, the timetable of the Guangzhou/ Zhaoqing/ Beijing/ Shanghai-Kowloon Through Trains will be changed. It is noteworthy that the journey time of the Shanghai-Kowloon Through Train will be reduced from 25 hours to less than 20 hours. Passengers may refer to the enclosed new timetables (see Annex) for details.
A KCRC spokesman said that ticket sale for all through trains departing from 18 April will start on 4 April in Hong Kong.
KCRC has uploaded the information onto the Corporate internet and posted notices outside the Immigration Halls at Hung Hom Station. Regular announcements are made at the waiting hall to inform passengers of the latest arrangement. Passengers may call the Intercity Passenger Services Hotline at 29477888 for enquiries.
