Station LayoutEdit

Due to being an interchange between two busy lines and serving a major office and shopping district, it's one of the busiest stations of the Guangzhou Metro. Both the line 1 and line 2 stations adopt the Spanish solution to separate boarding and alighting passengers on both lines. When the train arrives at the platform, train doors and platform screen doors on the right side are opened first to allow passengers to get off. Then those on the left side are opened to allow passengers to get on.

ExitsEdit

The station has 12 exits, lettered A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I (I1, I2), J and K.
