Spring Festival transport peak looming in south China city
Updated: 2006-01-10 16:09

The railway station in this bustling metropolis in south China has already seen a transport peak ahead of the Spring Festival, which falls on January 29 this year.

Last Friday alone, the Guangzhou Railway Station handled more than 74,000 passengers, which surpassed the volume for the New Year's Day, reported Tuesday's China Youth Daily.

Guangzhou is home to large numbers of migrant workers, many from densely populated and underdeveloped provinces. They return home for family reunion during the Spring Festival.

Railway departments along major railways have been working to meet the challenge of the heavy passenger flow as the festival comes earlier this year than in the past few years.

To honor the promise of better services, the Guangzhou Railway Station has increased the number of waiting rooms from seven to ten, with combined areas rising to 4,500 square meters.
