Work on the expansion of the Xiamen Railway Station has begun in China.

The project involves expansion of the station’s main building and surrounding facilities, construction of five new platforms, and municipal engineering work, according to whatsonxiamen.com.

Work on the surrounding facilities includes expanding the southern square, northern square and vehicle parking lots.

The first phase of the work is expected to involve building the southern square and southern station building and the second will demolish the existing northern station building and construct a new one.

The expansion work, scheduled to be completed in three years, will increase the total area of the station main building to 24,000m² – capable of accommodating up to 4,000 people.

The move is expected to facilitate the rising number of passengers following the arrival of the Fuzhou-Xiamen bullet trains in April.
