On the morning of June 30, the Guangzhou Zhanjiang high speed railway project and the Meilong railway project respectively held mobilization meetings for the start of the whole line in Zhanjiang and Meizhou.
The main line of Guangzhou Zhanjiang high speed railway project is led out from Guangzhou station, passing through Foshan, Zhaoqing, Yunfu, Yangjiang, Maoming and Zhanjiang to Zhanjiang north station, with a new double line of 401km and a design speed of 350km / h. Guangzhou Zhanjiang high speed railway is an important part of the high-speed railway connecting Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Bay area, Hainan free trade port and Beibu Gulf Urban Agglomeration. After completion, it will greatly shorten the space-time distance between the western Guangdong region and the Guangdong Hong Kong Macao Bay area.

The new main line is 95.6 km, and the design speed is 350 km / h. The construction of the project is of great significance to improve the high-speed railway network in Guangdong Province and to strengthen the links between the Pearl River Delta region, the Northern Fujian Province and the Yangtze River Delta region.
