The Zhengzhou–Xuzhou High-Speed Railway is a proposed high-speed rail line connecting the cities of Zhengzhou and Xuzhou, in China.[1]

The length of the line is 362.39 kilometers and the investment is estimated to be CN¥48.62 billion. It is one of the segments of the future Xulan Passenger Dedicated Line, a high-speed mainline from Lanzhou to Xuzhou, paralleling the existing Longhai Railway line. Presently, the existing Xuzhou-Zhengzhou line is used e.g. by passenger trains traveling from Shanghai and Nanjing to Xi'an, Lanzhou, and points west.

It was announced in November 2012 that the construction work on the line will start the next month (December 2012). The construction project is expected to take 4 years, completing by December 2016.[2]

When the railway is completed, it is expected that one would be able to travel between Xuzhou and Zhengzhou in 80 minutes,[2] as compared to about 2.5 hours taken by the trains on the existing railway.[2]

Stations[edit]

The railway will have 9 stations:[2]
