Guangming is planning to operate rapid transit trains between Guangmingcheng Railway Station and Shenzhen CBD when the Ganzhou-Shenzhen High-speed Railway opens before the end of the year.

During the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-2025), Guangming aims to build traffic circles that enable its residents to reach the district’s urban area in 15 minutes by slow traffic system, 30 minutes to the airport, 45 minutes to the city’s CBD, one hour to the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) core cities and two hours to neighboring provinces’ capital cities.

The district will try to build a link to join the Guangzhou-Shenzhen Central Axis Intercity Railway and optimize the Guangming section of Shenzhen-Dongguan-Zengcheng Intercity Railway. The district will try to include the construction of southward extension of Line 6 spur line, Line 18 and Line 29 into the city’s Phase V construction plan and start planning for Line 26 and Line 30.

The role of Guamgmingcheng Railway Station and Guangming Railway Station as two major transport hubs will be enhanced.

By 2025, Guangming’s railway network will reach 43 kilometers and trips to GBA core cities as well as the airport will be cut to 1 hour and 30 minutes, respectively.

In terms of road infrastructure to support Shenzhen northern center’s development, Guangming will speed up construction of Longda and Nanguang expressways, Longda Expressway’s Guangqiao Overpass and Shenzhen Outer Ring Expressway’s Baihua Overpass. It will speed up research on Longlan Boulevard and Nanguang Expressway’s northern extensions to form a three-horizontal and three-vertical expressway network, and speed up construction of 12 roads including an extension of Dongming Boulevard and a road link connecting Guangqiao and Bulong roads.

It will also build 24-kilometer bus lanes along Huaxia Road, Kexuecheng Boulevard and Zhoujia Boulevard, three comprehensive bus parking facilities in Guangming, Gongming and Jiangshi, and 16 bus terminals.

By 2025, Guangming’s road network density will reach 4.2 kilometers per square kilometers, the length of its bus lanes will reach 120 kilometers and it will build a 140-kilometer slow traffic road. This will improve its green transportation system and promote the “three-network integration” of rail, bus and slow traffic.
