The Territorial Spatial Planning of Guangdong Province 2020-2035 was recently released for public consultation between March and November. The plan covers the country’s land and sea territory with 2019 as the base year and looks to development during the years up to the middle of this century. Land will be set aside for six major corridors, including the “Beijing-Hong Kong-Macao high-speed maglev route” and the “Shanghai-Shenzhen-Guangzhou high-speed maglev route”.

According to the plan, one-hour traffic circles will be built in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA), the Shantou-Chaozhou-Jieyang metropolitan area and the Zhanjiang-Maoming metropolitan area, while a two-hour traffic circle will be built linking the GBA with the northwestern part of eastern Guangdong.
