The maglev line between Shanghai'sLongyang Road and Pudong International Airport.

It could take less than three hours to shuttle between Shanghai and Guangzhou on amaglevtrain, according to a plan released by Guangdong Province.

Theprovince in south China said it intends to reserve land for the construction of a Shanghai-(Shenzhen)-Guangzhou High-SpeedMaglev.

Its department of natural resourceshas published a blueprint on its website (nr.gd.gov.cn) to solicit public opinion through March 11.

The plan was released along with anothermaglevline between Beijing, Hong Kong andMacau, which will run through Guangzhou,Zhuhaiand other cities in Guangdong.

Themaglevline, which the department said was at “a quite preliminary planning stage,” would mean it would take about two and half hours to reach Guangzhou and two hours toShenzhenfrom Shanghai, the same time a flight would take.

The time between Beijing and Guangzhou would be around 3 hours and 20 minutes, half that of the Beijing-Guangzhou High-Speed Railway, the current fastest ground transport.

Shanghai saw China's first commercialmaglevsystem, a 30 kilometer stretch to the city's Pudong airport, put into operation in 2003. The system, based on Germanmaglevtechnology, can reach a speed of 400 kilometers per hour.

China's first medium-and-low speedmaglevline with a designed speed of 100 kilometers per hour started operation in May 2016 inChangsha in central Hunan Province.
