Encyclopedia > Lo Wu (KCRC)

Lo Wu is the northern terminus of the Hong Kong KCRC East Rail. The station serves as a primary checkpoint for rail passengers between Hong Kong and mainland China and vice-versa, rather than serving a specific residential/commercial area like the other stations do. Refurbishment work of the station started in 2002 and new facilities such as group waiting area, new ticket gates, etc., were introduced. Since December 28, 2004, this station also serves as the interchange station for the Shenzhen Metro Luohu station, which has the same Chinese name.
