According to the Master Plan of Shenzhen Railway Hub (2016-2030), a new transport hub will be built in the east of Shenzhen Airport, and the hub will be set up underground in line with the scale of 6 stations and 14 lines, so as to provide arrival and departure service to Shenzhen-Maoming Railway and other lines, achieve seamless connection with airport terminals, and form an integrated transport hub of “air-rail intermodal transportation”.
The Airport East Transport Hub is planned to connect the urban rail lines such as Line 1, Line 12, Line 20 and Line 26, and transfer with the Shenzhen-Daya Bay Intercity Line and the Airport MRT System. It will integrate various modes of transportation, such as buses, taxis and cars, so as to become a new gateway and benchmark for external transportation of Shenzhen.
