On March 17, the signing ceremony of land improvement and demolition work for Guangzhou-Zhanjiang High-speed Railway Foshan Station were held. Pan Shi, deputy secretary of the Chancheng Committee and mayor, said at the ceremony that this is the first step of Foshan Station project, and also the first step in the regional development of Chancheng's northern area this year.
A high-speed railway hub with 7 lines will be built in the area, with a station area of 30,000 square meters, accompanied by 20,000 square meters of urban facilities. With the central urban area of Foshan entirely covered in its 20-kilometer-radius, this HSR project will become a new engine for Foshan's economic development.
Chancheng has proposed to achieve a major leap from the central area to the city center, and urged to become the "Heart of Foshan" with more driving forces. Guangzhou-Zhanjiang High-speed Railway Foshan Station and its hub town project are just the solid foundation for Chancheng's blueprint.
After the completion of the Guangzhou-Zhanjiang High-speed Railway, it will only take 15 minutes from the central area of Foshan to the central area of Guangzhou, which means that these two trillion-GDP cities will be more closely linked with Chancheng as one of the poles on this line, empowering the accelerating rise of both cities. The distance of time and space will be greatly shortened, which will make Foshan's development have greater capacity, stronger driving forces and more agglomeration ability.
It is believed that Chancheng will continue to work with full swing to ensure the transfer of land, the raise of funds and the supporting facilities, to support the construction of HSR project.
