Shenzhen-Maoming High-speed Railway is an important section of China’s coastal railway system. It begins at Shenzhen North Railway Station and ends at Maoming East Railway Station, with a total of 388 kilometers.
According to the Maoming’s Communications Bureau, the construction of the Maoming section will be finished by the end of 2017, and the whole railway will be put into operation by 2017 at the soonest.
After it’s put into operation, the whole railway will be the most convenient passageway connecting the Pearl River Delta and West Guangdong. It will only take 2.5 hours from Guangzhou to Maoming and no more than 3 hours from Shenzhen to Maoming.
