On May 21, the joining construction for Xijiang Bridge's beam started in Baini, Sanshui, which marks a smooth progress of Guangzhou-Zhanjiang Railway.
This is the first bridge beam jointing operation of the whole project, with a length of 2 meters and a casting height of 42 meters. To ensure better construction quality, this project purposely starts at midnight according to the principle of thermal expansion and contraction.
This new Guangzhou-Zhanjiang High-speed Railway starts from Guangzhou Railway Station, goes west through Foshan, Zhaoqing, Yunfu, Yangjiang, Maoming, and finally ends at Zhanjiang North Railway Station. With additional 400-kilometer double-track railway and a design speed of 350km/h, it will be the most complex railyway with the highest standard, longest length and largest investment in Guangdong.
Once completed, Guangzhou-Zhanjiang Railway will realize 90-minute mutual connection between Guangzhou and Zhanjiang, and will further connect GBA, Hainan Free Trade Port and Beibu Gulf Economic Rim, which is of great significance to promote the economic and social development of western Guangdong.
