Guangzhou–Dongguan–Shenzhen Intercity Railway, also known as Guangzhou-Shenzhen Intercity Railway, is a express regional railway built to high-speed railway standards in the Pearl River Delta of Guangdong, China. The construction route traces roughly along the east bank of the Pearl River,[1] connecting Guangzhou, Dongguan and Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport. It will feature a length of about 87 km,[2] operating at a top speed of 140 kilometres per hour (below the semi high-speed rail threshold of 160Kph and a ordinary high-speed rail threshold of 200 kph) using CRH6 EMU trains.[3]

Route planning in 2009 within Guangzhou changed several times and then a big change, with Xintang in Guangzhou's Zengcheng District chosen as the originating point, straight into Hongmei, Dongguan. This changed the access to the Guangzhou Metro to Line 13, with future access to the planned Line 16.[4][5] Guangzhou–Dongguan–Shenzhen Intercity Railway originally planned include route of Shenzhen Metro Line 11 and the use of that metro line in an express route to Futian Station in central Shenzhen.[6] However in September 2010, it was announced that this railway will no longer enter into the Shenzhen city center. Despite this, reservations for extending services into Shenzhen's Futian station at some point in the future still exist.[7][8]

Future development

It is planned in the future to extend this railway further north eventually extending to Guangzhou Baiyun Airport and Guangzhou North Railway Station. A Sino-French joint venture is pursuing this option. Construction is expected to start in August 10, 2012, with an opening in 2015.

There are possible links too with the proposed Hong Kong-Shenzhen Western Express Railway, allowing for cross-border services and an eventual rail link between Hong Kong Airport with Shenzhen Airport and Guangzhou Airport.

There is also the option to make use of the rail reservation alongside Shenzhen Metro's Line 11 into central Shenzhen at Futian Station.
