Guangzhou's Huangpu residents can soon reach Jiangmen, Zhuhai, and Shenzhen via the Foshan-Guangzhou-Dongguan Intercity Railway, formerly known as Guangzhou Metro Line 28.
According to the National Development and Reform Commission, the 100-kilometer Foshan-Guangzhou-Dongguan Intercity Railway was set to start from Foshan's Dongping New Town, passing through Guangzhou's Fangcun, Yuzhu, and Xintang to end at Dongguan.

However, the latest public notice shows that the start point of the intercity railway will extend from Dongping New Town southwards to Lecong, where the railway station will connect to the Guangzhou-Foshan-Jiangmen-Zhuhai Intercity Railway.
Meanwhile, the Dongguan section might extend to Shenzhen's Huanggang Port which connects to Hong Kong. Travel between the centers of Guangzhou and Shenzhen will be cut down to one hour and a rapid passage will take shape along the Guangzhou-Shenzhen Scientific and Technological Innovation Corridor.
Many station complexes along the Guangzhou section, including Xinzhou, Yuzhu, Huangpu, Chenjialin and Nizi, are calling for preliminary research bids.
