The east ring of the Guangzhou-Foshan Loop Intercity Railway spans a length of nearly 46.75 kilometers, passing through Panyu, Haizhu, Huangpu, Tianhe, and Baiyun districts in Guangzhou. It will feature eight stations.
The line between Pazhou Station and Financial City Station is 1,892 meters long, and needs to pass underneath the Tangxia River, Linjiang Avenue, the Pazhou Bridge, the front channel of the Pearl River, as well as tram lines.
The east ring of the Guangzhou-Foshan Loop Intercity Railway is an important transportation infrastructure project to promote and realize regional economic integration of the Pearl River Delta.
After completion, it will only take 10 minutes to travel from Tianhe Central Business District to Guangzhou South Railway Station, as well as 20 minutes to reach Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport.
