Zhuhai Railway Station also called Gongbei Station (拱北站), is an elevated station of the Guangzhou–Zhuhai Intercity Railway (Guangzhu ICR, From Guangzhou South Railway Station to Zhuhai Railway Station). It was opened on Dec. 31, 2012. It lies to the south of Changsheng Road, east of Guihua South Road, and west of Gongbei Border.
The station building has 4 stories. Covering an area of 69,488 square meters, basements 1 and 2 are used as taxi stands and parking lots respectively. The basement parking lots serve as the city’s biggest distributing centre with nearly 1,500 parking spaces linking the MRT to buses, taxies, private cars and others. The first floor is for the ticket and waiting hall, while the second floor is for the platform. At the platform, passengers can see direction, signs pointing to Gongbei Border, public bus terminus, taxi stands, and parking lots clearly. There is an elevator at the east side of the platform, from which passengers can reach the front square. It is easy to walk from the front square to Gongbei Border Square in 5 minutes.
It is convenient for passengers to transfer by bus to other places in the city after getting off the train. There are 11 city bus routes (nos. 1, 2, 10, K10, 11, 31, 32, 101, 207 601 and 608) running from this station to Xiangzhou Terminal, Xiazha Checkpoint, Jida Terminal, Shenqian Terminal, the airport, Jing’an and Ocean Spring Resort.
Walking from Zhuhai Railway Station to Gongbei Port is about 10 minutes, the Gongbei Beipor just on the right side of the Zhuhai Railway Station. However, be prepared for long queues, which can make your total custom crossing time more than an hour (even 2 hours especially in weekends). When passing the Zhuhai side in Gongbei Port (take the way from Zhuhai to Macau for example), remember that the left passageway is for Macau people and Hong Kong people, and the right passageway (with the sigh of saying ’Foreigner’) is for foreigners and people from Chinese Mainland and Taiwan. After that, you will arrive at the Macau side. As the same, if you are a foreigner, take the right passageway. At last, you will arrive at Macau after you getting out of the custom building.So you can travel from Guangzhou South Railway Station to Macau .
