On the morning of January 13, 2023, the Nanchong City Delegation and the Guang'an City Delegation held a plenary meeting at the first meeting of the 14th Sichuan Provincial People's Congress, and both passed the "Suggestions on Accelerating the Preliminary Work of the Nanchong-Guang'an Railway" , decided to submit them to the secretariat of the conference in the name of the delegation, and jointly promote this major project related to the long-term development of the two cities and the well-being of the people's livelihood in an orderly and effective manner, and strive to be completed as soon as possible.

The "Multi-level Rail Transit Plan for the Chengdu-Chongqing Economic Circle" clarifies that the function of the Nanchong-Guang'an railway is a trunk line, and serves as the connecting line between the Chengdu-Wanzhou High-speed Railway and the West-Chongqing High-speed Railway. With a speed of 350 kilometers per hour, we can actively strive to use the Nanchong-Guang'an railway as a part of the planning and construction of the Lanzhou-Chongqing high-speed railway. According to the planning and construction of the 350 kilometers per hour standard, a new high-speed railway passage running through the north and south will be formed to better play the function of the passage and improve transportation. Benefits: It is recommended that the Nanchong-Guang'an Railway be included in the list of 100 key promotion projects in the province in 2023 at the provincial level, and strive to start construction in 2024. Suggestions were also put forward on matters such as sponsors for the construction of the Nanchong-Guang'an Railway.

First, it is conducive to promoting the joint development of the northern wing of the twin-city economic circle in the Chengdu-Chongqing area.

It will jointly build the "Golden Ring Line" of the Sichuan-Chongqing Cooperation Demonstration Zone with the Chengdu-Chongqing Middle Line ", to realize the coordinated development of the Chengdu-Chongqing region's twin-city economic circle in the eastern Sichuan and northern Chongqing wings.

Second, it is conducive to improving the overall layout of the national railway corridor. After the completion of the project, the existing Hanbanan Railway will extend southward to the West-Chongqing high-speed railway through the Nanchong-Guang'an railway, and connect to the northward direction to Hanzhong, Shaanxi. A brand-new high-speed railway passage running from north to south forms the planning prototype of the Lanzhou-Chongqing high-speed railway; at the same time, it will greatly release the existing freight capacity of the Lanzhou-Chongqing railway, further enhance the function of the western land-sea passage, and make the passenger and cargo transportation structure of the regional road network more reasonable.

The third is conducive to the construction of Bashu cultural tourism corridor. The construction and implementation of this project will provide more comfortable, efficient and convenient transportation for intercity passengers in the northern part of Chengdu and Chongqing, as well as for passengers in Chengdu and Chongqing, and promote the full integration of the rich red culture of Guang'an and Nanchong into the big market in Chengdu and Chongqing , Attracting more tourists, plays an important role in building the Bashu Cultural Tourism Corridor, creating a world-class tourist destination, driving the development of the tourism industry along the route, and improving the level of regional social and economic development.
