The new line will bring to an end Meizhou's lack of a high-speed rail connection. Currently, tracks have been laid up to the line's Fengshun Jianqiao Station, with 2.5 kilometers of tracks being laid each day.

The long-awaited high-speed railway has a designed speed of 250 kilometers per hour and a total length of 122.412 kilometers, with seven stations. The line will begin at the Meizhou West Station and pass through Jieyang and Chaozhou City before connecting with the existing Chaoshan Railway Station.
