Urban designs for the development of Nansha District in Guangzhou include a rail line that connects with Shenzhen International Airport.

The light-rail line depicted in Nansha's latest development plans also connects the district with Hong Kong International Airport and Guangzhou South Railway Station.

The Guangzhou Nansha New Zone Urban General Plan for 2011-2030 was posted on the city government's website Monday, starting 30 days of public consultation that end Feb. 26.

The plan also includes a subway system, with seven lines and 34 stations linking Nansha with airports in Shenzhen, Guangzhou and Hong Kong, and also with Guangzhou South Railway Station.

Construction of the rail system will improve transportation in Nansha to Shenzhen's airport and Hong Kong's airport in the east, and to Gongbei Checkpoint in the west and the Baiyun airport in the north.

A planning expert with Nansha's district government said several light-rail lines were proposed, linking Zhongshan and Nansha with Dongguan, Guangzhou and Xintang; Dongguan with Qianhai in Shenzhen; and Qianhai with Hong Kong International Airport. The lines are scheduled for completion in 2020 and will enable trains to travel 200 km/h.

Nansha, Qianhai and the Hengqin area in Zhuhai are three development zones in Guangdong Province that are focusing on cooperation with Hong Kong.

The Nansha plan says 300 square kilometers — 38 percent of the zone's total area — will be used for urban construction. The plan also includes seven environmental zones to protect wetlands and restore areas formerly used for mining.

The plan is posted on Nansha government sites at www.upo.gov.cn and www.gzns.gov.cn.
