When the city of Shenzhen announced plans to build “the best train station in Asia”, it clearly meant business. Predicted to serve more than 44 million passengers annually by 2020, Shenzhen North Railway Station is the new hub of South China’s high-speed train and passenger rail network. With its cantilevered roof structure and space-age façade, the station is an architectural statement reflecting the dynamism of an ambitiously expanding metropolis. But what’s inside is equally exciting. Completed in 2011, the station accommodates local and long-distance bus links, eleven platforms and twenty train lines, including the Guangzhou-Shenzhen high-speed train. Take the KONE elevator underground and you find three subway lines, one providing the first-ever seamless connection between Shenzhen and nearby Hong Kong. KONE was chosen to supply the elevators and help solve the people flow puzzle of this high-profile project. KONE experts analyzed the peak-hour traffic flows and proposed the optimum number of KONE high-capacity 1,350 kilogram elevators.
