A total of 80 projects from Nansha district have been listed among Guangzhou's 666 major projects for construction in 2021, local media outlets reported on April 4.
These construction projects cover various areas such as information and technology infrastructure, port and shipping infrastructure, transport infrastructure, and supporting facilities for major development platforms.
Equipment for big science development, such as a pre-research project of the dynamic wide scope hypersonic wind tunnel and a pre-research project of the multi-scale autonomous observation facilities for extreme ocean dynamic process, are also listed among Nansha's major projects.
Projects such as turning Nansha into an international data transmission hub in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, the Mingzhu Science Park of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and the general assembly base of the Guangdong Institute of Intelligent Unmanned Systems will help enhance Nansha's strengths in scientific innovation.
Nansha will push forward the construction of Nansha Station, an important passenger station on the Nansha Port railway. Nansha citizens will be able to reach nearby cities such as Zhongshan, Foshan and Jiangmen from Nansha Station.
The Nansha-Zhuhai (Zhongshan) Intercity Railway, with a total length of 79 kilometers, is scheduled to start construction this year.
Nansha's fixed-asset investment increased by 22.2 percent in 2020, ranking top among districts in Guangzhou with more than 50 billion yuan ($8 billion) investment, and ranking second among all national new districts, only after Xiongan New Area.
