The Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link Mainland Section or Guangshengang High-Speed Railway Mainland Section (simplified Chinese: 广深港高速铁路内地段traditional Chinese: 廣深港高速鐵路內地段pinyin: guǎng shēn gǎng gāosù tiělù nèidì duàn; XRL Mainland Section) is a proposed express railway connecting Guangzhou, Dongguan, and Shenzhen in Guangdong Province, People's Republic of China. The total distance is 116 kilometres and the expected travel time between Guangzhou's Shibi Station (Guangzhou South Station) and Shenzhen's Futian Station is 36 minutes. Trains on this line will run at a maximum speed of 350km/h.

Construction cost will be covered by the Guangdong Province People's Government and the Ministry of Railways of the People's Republic of China. As at 2009, construction is in progress. It is expected to be open in 2010, with the exception of Futian Station, which is expected to be open in 2012.

Apart from Guangzhou South and Futian, it will have four stations in between, namely, from north to south, Dongchong, Humen, Guangming and Longhua (Shenzhen North, New Shenzhen). At Guangzhou South Station it will be connected in the north to the Wuhan-Guangzhou Passenger Railway, in the west to the Guizhou-Guangzhou Railway, and in the south to the Guangzhou-Zhuhai Intercity Railway. At Shenzhen North Station it will be connected to the Southeast Coastal Express Railway. When the Hong Kong Section is open, expected to be 2015, some of the trains will run onwards from Futian onto West Kowloon Terminus, across the border in Kowloon, Hong Kong.
