SSGKC will benefit from a convenient transportation network, encompassing expressways, highways, metro lines and inter-city rail, with on-going efforts to improve the road networks linking it to Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, downtown Guangzhou and major cities in the Pearl River Delta region.
The Beijing-Zhuhai Expressway, 2nd North Ring Road (Bei’erhuan Highway), Guangzhou-Huiyuan Expressway, South China High-speed Road, Guangzhou-Shantou Road, Guangzhou-Conghua Road, Huadu-Dongguan Expressway and Guangzhou-Heyuan Expressway connect SSGKC to the region and beyond. It is a 35-minute drive to reach Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport via the Huaguan Expressway, and a 30-minute drive to downtown Guangzhou by Guanghe Expressway.
The dedicated Knowledge City line, which is an extension of Metro Line 14 is currently under construction and connects SSGKC to Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport and Guangzhou City.Metro Line 21 (Tianhe Park-Zengcheng) also connects SSGKC with the downtown area of Guangzhou and Zengcheng, both of which would be operational in 2017. The Knowledge City Line will have nine Metro stations, seven of which will be located in SSGKC. In addition, the Guangzhou-Dongguan-Shenzhen inter-city rail which is also under constructed, would also reduce travel time between SSGKC and major cities in the Pearl River Delta region to one hour.
