The Guangzhou-Shenzhen section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong High-Speed Railway is scheduled to begin operations on Dec. 26, the Guangzhou Railway (Group) Corporation said.

The Guangzhou-Shenzhen section connects Guangzhou East Station and Shenzhen North Station, with three stops in Qingsheng, Humen, and Shenzhen’s Guangming New Area. The section is 102 kilometers long, and will support a top speed of 300 kilometers per hour in the initial stages.

After the Guangzhou-Shenzhen section begins operations, the travel time between the two cities will be reduced to 35 minutes, about 34 minutes less than the current Guangzhou-Shenzhen railway costs.
