Guangzhou plans to construct high-speed rail (HSR) in urban area, Peng Gaofeng, Director of Guangzhou Land Resource and Urban Planning Committee introduced yesterday.
The future HSR will stop at 8 stations in Guangzhou’s urban area including 6 main stations (Guangzhou Railway Station, South Railway Station, East Railway Station, North Railway Station, The new Guangzhou East Railway Station located in Zengcheng, Nansha Railway Station) and 2 subsidiary stations (Xintang and Qingsheng).
Guangzhou will make full use of the limited urban space and further integrate the regional resources to promote innovation-driven development, Peng said. Now Guangzhou is on the way to construct International transportation hub.
“Guangzhou will make every effort to develop into an International shipping center, a world-class aviation hub and a joint of the “Silk Road Economic Belt” to fully elevate the competiveness. The urban HSR is a part of this plan.” Peng added.
