According to the Hengqin New District Administrative Committee, Hengqin Station will open this year. The new station will seamlessly link the city with the Macau Light Rail system. The Hengqin Station is an extension section of the Guangzhou-Zhuhai Intercity Rail system.

Currently, bullet train services linking Xiamen and Guangzhou take less than five hours. It will take about one hour to travel from Guangzhou South to Macau via the new Guangzhou-Macau railway.

The extension of the Guangzhou-Zhuhai Intercity Railway will be implemented in two "phases," namely the Gongbei-Hengqin Section (first "phase") and the Chimelong Park-Zhuhai Airport (second "phase"). The first section is about 17 kilometers in length, and has seven stations.

The first phase of construction connecting Gongbei to Hengqin began in 2014 and is expected to meet "acceptable requirements" later this year.

According to plans, Hengqin Station is expected to be a transfer center for passengers from mainland China and Macau. Passengers will be able to go through customs and security procedures at Hengqin Station.
