In June 2008, in order to meet the needs of the Beijing Olympic Games, bilingual signs were created at the Beijing Railway Station to facilitate an overall increase in foreign tourists travelling to the games, in addition to putting up the "Beijing Railway Station", several other signs were also erected at station entrances, exits and ticket booths.
