The 26-km long Hong Kong Section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link (XRL) runs from West Kowloon in Kowloon, to the boundary between Hong Kong and Shenzhen in the Mainland. The XRL will connect Hong Kong to the 20,000-km National High-speed Railway Network and will enhance Hong Kong’s role as the southern gateway to Mainland China.

Construction of the XRL started in January 2010 with a target completion date of the 3rd quarter of 2018. The full fleet of XRL trains has already arrived in Hong Kong and they are now undergoing dynamic testing. 

The XRL will facilitate the social and economic integration of Hong Kong with major cities in Mainland China and it will provide a popular option for business travellers going to major Mainland cities. 

A tour and preview of the XRL trains and Operations Control Centre (OCC) has been arranged for delegates of Asia Pacific Rail at the Shek Kong Stabling Sidings (SSS).
