It will have a total length of 112.9km, with a new constructed track length of 86.82 kilometres, starting from Foshan West Railway Station, travelling west through Shishan Town in Nanhai District, across Shishan Industrial Park, over the Guangzhou-Zhuhai Railway and entering Sanshui District. A bridge crosses the Bei River pushing through the Zhaoqing High-tech Industrial Development Zone. The line bends to the southwest, across Suijiang, overpasses the Guangzhou-Maoming Railway & 321 State Road, passing Dinghu District before punching in to Zhaoqing. [4][5] The total number of stations on this line will be 11, 7 of which are elevated stations, 1 underground station and 3 ground level stations. Connections will exist between this line and the Guiyang–Guangzhou High-Speed Railway and the Nanning-Guangzhou High-speed Railway. An extension to Guangzhou South Railway Station is under construction and will complete this project as well as forming part of the Foshan-Dongguan Intercity Railway and the Guangzhou Circle Intercity Railways. Designed operational speed will be for a maximum of 200Kph. [6]
