Futian District is one of the nine districts comprising the city of Shenzhen, People's Republic of China. The district is home to the government and Municipal Committee of Shenzhen, as well as the central business district of the city. There are two theories concerning the origin of the district's name: From an inscription dating to the Song Dynasty which reads: "Lakes and mountains are blessed with fertile farmlands". Written records show that people from Shangsha Village built houses in Songziling in 1192, farmlands were cultivated in lattice shapes, which in Chinese is a homophone for "Futian" meaning "blessed fields". Luohu District was established in April one month after Shenzhen was promoted to city status. Futian, another area called Fucheng, became communes within the Luohu District. Futian became part of the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone after it was designated in 1980, it became a subdistrict under the district of Shangbu. Futian, along with Nanshan, was promoted to district status in October 1990.
The Shangbu district, which had governed the Futian subdistrict the previous decade, became a part of the Futian district. The district government was established on Shennan Middle Road. Rapid urbanization occurred in the late 20th century; the Central Business District of Shenzhen is a planned development project that began in the early 1990s. Located within the Futian district, it comprises an area of 607 hectares; the four sides of the district are delineated by Binhe Dadao, Lianhua Road, Xinzhou Road and Caitian Road. Many office high-rises and government buildings are located in the CBD, some of which are prominent buildings in Shenzhen, such as the Shenzhen City Hall, Shenzhen Library and Concert Hall, Shenzhen Development Bank building and the Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center. Located directly north of the CBD is Lianhuashan Park. There are numerous skyscrapers in the CBD, including the SEG Tower, China Merchants Bank Tower, the twin towers of East Pacific Center, the 600 m Ping An Finance Centre, the second tallest building in China and the fourth tallest in the world.
Wal-Mart China has its headquarters in Towers 3 of SZITIC Square in Futian District. Everbright International has its Shenzhen Offices in Oriental Xintiandi Plaza in Futian District; the hotel chain Vienna Hotels had its headquarters in Lüjing Garden, Futian District.

China Railway known as CR, full name China Railway Corporation is a state-owned sole proprietorship enterprise that undertakes railway passenger and cargo transportation services in the People's Republic of China and is a state-owned industrial enterprise established under the "Law of the People's Republic of China on All-Ownership Industrial Enterprises." The Ministry of Finance acts on behalf of the State Council to perform the duties of shareholders. It used to be part of the now defunct Ministry of Railways. China Railway operates freight transport via 21 subsidiaries. China Railway had its own railway police force, prosecutors office and court system; the police department of the railway is still under the control of the company. The status of the police is civil service of Ministry of Public Security, but they are still paid and managed by the company; the China Railway logo was designed by Chen Yuchang adopted on 22 January 1950. The whole logo represents the front of a locomotive; the upper part of the logo represents the Chinese character 人, while the lower part represents the transversal surface of a rail.
The logo means. The "CR" logo is used on the Fuxing along with the China Railway logo. There are 21 primary subsidiary companies under China Railway; as of 2008 2 million people work in China Railway. China Railway operates the passenger trains from China to Mongolia, Kazakhstan, North Korea, Vietnam; as of 2017 China Railway ran goods services to 15 European cities, including routes to Madrid and Hamburg and the experimental East Wind service to London to test demand. The Chinese government refers to the two-week 12,000 km route, starting at Yiwu and with trains to London traversing Kazakhstan, Belarus, Germany and France, as the Belt and Road Initiative. Containers must be transferred several times, as different, rail gauges are used in different regions, the same rolling stock cannot be used throughout.

Line 3 (Shenzhen Metro)
Shenzhen Metro Line 3, runs northeastward from Yitian to Shuanglong. Line 3 opened on 28 December 2010. Line 3's color is blue. Since opening, it has been trafficked and became a major transport option for urban workers. Line 3 has a service interval of 5 minutes between trains across the entire length of the line. Sectional trains operate on weekdays, between Huaxin and Tangkeng, from 7:15 am to 9:15 am and from 5:45 pm to 7:45 pm; this is to alleviate surges in passenger traffic at Buji, since the opening of the connecting Shenzhen East. The first phase of Shenzhen Metro Line 3 started construction in July 2007. On 23 April 2008, the Shenzhen Municipal Planning Bureau renamed the still under construction Shenzhen Metro Line 3 to "Longgang Line"; the renaming was reverted in 2013. The first phase of the line from Shuanglong to Caopu stations began operations on 28 December 2010; this section is entirely elevated except near Tangkeng. It starts from Longgang District and runs along Shenhui Road, to Luohu District.
The first phase has 16 stations, with a total length of 25.138 km. The second phase of the line from Hongling to Yitian stations, opened on 28 June 2011. With the start of Shenzhen Metro's Phase III construction, Line 3 will be extended on both ends; the extension one station south beyond Yitian to the Futian Free Trade Zone is expected to start construction by the end of 2015. In addition a 7.3 km extension further west into Longgang District is expected to start construction soon. Long term plans include extending Line 3 further east into neighboring Huizhou City along with Line 12. On 7 August 2013 a "Memorandum of Cooperation" was signed to coordinate transport planning and urban development between the two cities, formalizing the planning process for the proposal.

Futian Port is an immigration port of entry on the border between mainland China and Hong Kong, located in the Futian District of Shenzhen in mainland China. It houses the Futian Port Control Point, it is in the same building as Futian Checkpoint Station on Shenzhen Metro and acts as the Hong Kong counterpart to the Lok Ma Chau Spur Line Control Point. It is connected with Hong Kong's Lok Ma Chau Spur Line Control Point and MTR's Lok Ma Chau Station in Lok Ma Chau, Hong Kong through a pedestrian footbridge, it has been in operation since 15 August 2007 and is the second border crossing along the border with a railway connection, after Luohu Port/Lo Wu Control Point. The Shenzhen subway at Futian Port is connected to the East Railway Station in Lok Ma Chau, Hong Kong by Futian-Lok Ma Chau Pedestrian Bridge; this is a double-deck bridge with a cable-stayed on the top, novel and unique worldwide. Its length is 211 metres, the depth of the deeper side is 87 metres, the width is 16.5 metres. The upper and the lower layers are both unidirectional, to ensure that passengers do not meet those crossing in the opposite direction.
There is an immigration control point at both sides of the bridge. There are separate passages for the blind on the bridge. On the east of the bridge is the united checking building and on its west is the united checking building of Lok Ma Chau, Hong Kong; because of the subway and the united checking building, the subway and the ground transportation together carrying the passengers entering and exiting, it will become a three-dimensional transportation thoroughfare between underground and ground. Squares and roads will be built around the stations and united checking building, according to regional planning. Once completed, the daily passenger capacity will be 190,000. Passengers from Hong Kong and Macau will spend only 15 seconds entering. Futian Checkpoint Station Lok Ma Chau Station
An island platform is a station layout arrangement where a single platform is positioned between two tracks within a railway station, tram stop or transitway interchange. Island platforms are popular on twin-track routes due to cost-effective reasons, they are useful within larger stations where local and express services for the same direction of travel can be provided from opposite sides of the same platform thereby simplifying transfers between the two tracks. An alternative arrangement is to position side platforms on either side of the tracks; the historical use of island platforms depends upon the location. In the United Kingdom the use of island platforms is common when the railway line is in a cutting or raised on an embankment, as this makes it easier to provide access to the platform without walking across the tracks. Island platforms are necessary for any station with many through platforms. Building small two-track stations with a single island platform instead of two side platforms does have advantages.
Island platforms allow facilities such as shops and waiting rooms to be shared between both tracks rather than being duplicated or present only on one side. An island platform makes it easier for wheelchair users and other people with physical limitations to change services between tracks or access facilities. If the tracks are above or below the entrance level, an island platform layout requires only one staircase and one elevator be built to access the platforms. Building the tracks and entrance at the same level creates a disadvantage. If an island platform is not wide enough to cope with passenger numbers, overcrowding can be a problem. Examples of stations where a narrow island platform has caused safety issues include Clapham Common and Angel on the London Underground. An island platform requires the tracks to diverge around the center platform, extra width is required along the right-of-way on each approach to the station on high-speed lines. Track centers vary for rail systems throughout the world but are 3 to 5 meters.
If the island platform is 6 meters wide, the tracks must slew out by the same distance. While this requirement is not a problem on a new line under construction, it makes building a new station on an existing line impossible without altering the tracks. A single island platform makes it quite difficult to have through tracks, which are between the local tracks. A common configuration in busy locations on high speed lines is a pair of island platforms, with slower trains diverging from the main line so that the main line tracks remain straight. High-speed trains can therefore pass straight through the station, while slow trains pass around the platforms; this arrangement allows the station to serve as a point where slow trains can be passed by faster trains. A variation at some stations is to have the slow and fast pairs of tracks each served by island platforms A rarer layout, present at Mets-Willets Point on the IRT Flushing Line, 34th Street – Penn Station on the IRT Seventh Avenue Line and 34th Street – Penn Station on the IND Eighth Avenue Line of the New York City Subway, uses two side platforms for local services with an island in between for express services.
The purpose of this atypical design was to reduce unnecessary passenger congestion at a station with a high volume of passengers. Since the IRT Seventh Avenue Line and IND Eighth Avenue Line have adjacent express stations at 42nd Street, passengers can make their transfers from local to express trains there, leaving more space available for passengers utilizing intercity rail at Pennsylvania Station; the Willets Point Boulevard station was renovated to accommodate the high volume of passengers coming to the 1939 World's Fair. Many of the stations on the Great Central Railway were constructed in this form; this was. If this happened, the lines would need to be compatible with continental loading gauge, this would mean it would be easy to change the line to a larger gauge, by moving the track away from the platform to allow the wider bodied continental rolling stock to pass while leaving the platform area untouched. Island platforms are a normal sight on Indian railway stations. All railway stations in India consist of island platforms.
In Toronto, 29 subway stations use island platforms. In Sydney, on the Eastern Suburbs Railway and the Epping Chatswood Railway, the twin tunnels are spaced and the tracks can remain at a constant track centres while still leaving room for the island platforms. A slight disadvantage is. In Edmonton, all 18 LRT stations on the Capital Line and Metro Line use island platforms; the Valley Line under construction, utilizes the new low-floor LRT technology, but will only use island platforms on one of the twelve stops along the line. In southern New Jersey and Philadelphia, PATCO uses island platforms in all of its 13 s
