Guangzhou will add six high-speed railway lines to its network, which will connect to, but are different from, the existing Intercity and Metro lines. According to Guangzhou Transport Planning Research, two are already being constructed and will run between the capital’s CBD area and Nansha, at its southern tip, at speeds of 160 km/h. A third is just started, which will connect to Foshan, also at 160 km/h. The three others, however, are still being planned. They will run northwards and travel at 250 km/h. They are awaiting approval as part of the GBA Intercity Railway Construction Plan.
