The Zhuhai Highway Bureau is soliciting public opinions on a proposed major thoroughfare named Guyuan Avenue to connect the Zhuhai National Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone and Qianshan area with Tanzhou Town of Zhongshan City.
The project, with a total length of 15.51 km (9.6 miles), would encompass an arterial north-south route and sub-arterial two-way six-lane roads with a speed limit of 60 kmh (37 mph). The project also includes Central Meijie and Qingsong roads for four-lane traffic in both directions at a maximum speed of 40 kmh (25 mph).

Specifically, the 9.84-km (6.1-mile) arterial road would start north of the intersection of West Jintang Road in Tangjiawan and traverse Jinqin Express Road southward to link up to Sanshitai Road in Qianshan. Along the route are the future University Town and Fenghuang Mt with a proposed new tourism town in the neighborhood.
The 2018 government work report anticipates that construction of the project, to be implemented in two phases, will begin this year.
