The Quzhou-Ningde Railway links the southwest of Zhejiang province and the northeast of Fujian province. It starts from Quzhou in Zhejiang, passes through Lishui's Suichang county, Longquan and Qingyuan county in the south, crosses Baizhang Mountain, and then enters Fujian province. The railway runs for 379 kilometers.

The main line of the Zhejiang section is about 206.8 km long, with 16 stations, including five new intermediate stations for passengers and freight, including Lishui's Suichang, Songyang, Qingyuan counties, and Longquan.
