The self-service e-Channel stalls in the exit hall of Shenzhen Bay are undergoing construction from October 14th for about one month, ShekouNews reported today. The renovation is expected to take one month.

The goal is to replace 17 old stalls with 19 new ones; increasing the total number of stalls from 37 to 39. During the construction only 20 stalls will be available, so expect delays while exiting during busy times.

The article advises tourists to choose other exit halls such as Futian or Luohu, or avoid going during busy times; especially from 8:00-11:00 weekend mornings.
