Shenzhen and Guangzhou Railway Group Corp. will speed up construction on the eastern section of the Shenzhen-Maoming High-speed Railway, according to an agreement signed recently.
The eastern section will run between Shenzhen and Jiangmen, spanning over the Pearl River.
Work on the western section of the line, between Jiangmen and Maoming, is going smoothly with the 1,000th Y-shape beam successfully erected Sept. 19, paving the way for the opening of the west section in 2018.
The Shenzhen-Maoming rail, which runs 388 kilometers from Shenzhen North Station to Maoming East Station, is part of China’s coastal railway network.
The western section runs 266 kilometers and covers Jiangmen, Yangjiang and Maoming in western Guangdong. The section has 15 stations and is designated for a speed of 200 kilometers per hour.
Work on the Shenzhen-Jiangmen section proceeds slower than the western section because it involves the huge undertaking of constructing a bridge over the Pearl River.(Han Ximin)
