The reconstruction project, the first of its kind in the province's mountainous area, starts from the Jieyang interchange (Jieyang-Puning-Huizhou Expressway S17) and passes through Jiedong district of Jieyang City, Fengshun County, Xingning City, and Meixian district of Meizhou City before terminating at the Chengjiang interchange (Changchun-Shenzhen Expressway G25 and Meizhou-Longyan Expressway S12).

Stretching 142 km, Shantou-Meizhou expressway is an important cargo route in northeastern Guangdong, linking the province with Jiangxi and Fujian. 

In the future, the expressway will further promote the regional coordinated development, enhance infrastructure connectivity in northeastern Guangdong, and drive the economic, industrial and tourism development along the routes.
