Work has begun on the first section of rail track for Guangzhou's city subway.

The subway's major line will be built in two phases and will extend 6.7 kilometres southward from Huangsha station. The first phase is expected to be completed by the end of October.

Guangzhou Subway Corp said it would use modetrn technology to help reduce noise and ground vibrations from the subway trains.
