GUIYANG, China, Sept. 20, 2022 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/ --

In September 2022, the Guiyang-Nanning high-speed railway, which is scheduled 
to be completed and open to traffic by 2023, made significant progress and the 
preliminary track-laying work of all road sections were basically completed. 
The Guiyang-Nanning high-speed railway is an important part of the main channel 
of China's "eight vertical and eight horizontal" high-speed railway from Baotou 
city (Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region) to Haikou City (Hainan Province), with 
a design speed of 350 kilometers per hour. After the whole line is completed 
and opened to traffic, it will connect with Shanghai-Kunming, Chengdu-Guiyang 
high-speed railways, and become a convenient and fast main passenger transport 
channel from Sichuan, Chongqing, Guizhou and even Northwest China to Nanning, 
Beibu Gulf, western Guangdong and Hainan, according to the Publicity Department 
of the CPC Guiyang Municipal Committee.

Since 2012, Guizhou has put traffic first. 1,609 kilometers of high-speed 
railways had been completed in Guizhou province by the end of 2021. Gui'an to 
Guangzhou, Changsha, Kunming, Chongqing, Chengdu and other cities have achieved 
direct high-speed rail connectivity, basically realizing high-speed rail 
connectivity with surrounding provincial capitals. Guizhou has gradually formed 
a railway transportation network with Gui'an as the center. 

The geographical location advantage of an important land transportation hub in 
southwest Guizhou has been increasingly prominent, Gui'an has become an 
important high-speed railway hub in China.
