The plan comprises 13 separate new line projects, which will add a total of 775km to the railway network, two track expansion projects, and the redevelopment of Guangzhou Railway Station and Guangzhou East Railway Station. The plan envisages that the region will have 4700km of railway infrastructure in operation or under construction by 2025, expanding to 5700km by 2035, covering all major cities in the region.
The plan comprises seven new line projects on which construction will start before 2022:
Construction on a project to add a fifth and sixth track between Guangzhou East and Xintang (29km, Yuan 58bn) and to redevelop Guangzhou East Railway Station Reconstruction Project (Yuan 25bn) will also start before 2022.
A further seven new line projects, one track expansion scheme and the redevelopment of Guangzhou Railway Station (Yuan 183bn) are planned but with no confirmed start date:

NRDC says the new projects will improve integration with existing high-speed, suburban railway networks as well as transit services at major hubs centred on Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Zhuhai, on the border with Macau, along with Zhaoqing East and Pearl River Delta Airport stations. The goal is to offer journey times of one hour between the major cities in the Greater Bay Area and in Guangdong province, and three hours to other provincial capitals.
Guangdong province is responsible for the organisation and implementation of the projects. The Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Greater Bay Area covers 56,000km² and has a population of 72.65 million.
