Transportation infrastructure to shape the city’s development

According to Chen, transportation infrastructure should be paramount to the city’s development. With Jiangmen railway station planned to be a comprehensive transportation hub on the west bank of the Pearl River Delta, efforts are being made to realise this aspiration.

The Jiangmen-Zhanjiang Railway opened on July 1st, 2018, enabling direct rail links between Jiangmen Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen North Stations. Furthermore the Guangzhou-Zhuhai passage rail link and Nansha Harbor railway are now under construction. Finally in terms of rail access there are the planned Shenzhen-Jiangmen-Yulin-Nanning High-Speed Rail and Zhuhai-Jiangmen-Zhaoqing High-Speed Rail, both key projects as part of wider GBA development.

At the same time, the Huangmao Sea Channel, a sea bridge across the mouth of the Huangmao River connecting Zhuhai with Jiangmen and western Guangdong, has been approved and will start construction next year. The bridge will link with the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge.

In terms of airport construction, Chen introduced that Jiangmen is currently planning to build an airport in Enping, a county-level city in Jiangmen. In future, the city is looking at options for a further airport in Taishan, another county-level city in Jiangmen and birthplace of many overseas Chinese.
