Beijing–Shenyang high-speed railway is a high-speed rail line of the China Railway High-speed between Beijing and Shenyang, the capital of Liaoning province. The line is 705 km (438 mi). Construction was supposed to have started in 2010 with the project to be completed in 2012 but was delayed repeatedly until March 2014.[1][2]

Protests by residents along the planned route have caused several safety review to examine the potential noise pollution and electro-magnetic radiation.[3][4] The first two reviews suggested installing noise shielding along sensitive parts of the line. The third review called for similar noise shielding in addition to above ground tunnels to completely enclose the line while near urban areas.[5] In addition the starting point has been relocated to Xinghuo railway station in Chaoyang District of Beijing. In August 2013, the Beijing municipal government published a notice calling for bids to build the line and its status is completed and operational. The total investment was expected to be 124.5 billion yuan.[6][7]

The line will relieve a significant bottleneck in China's transportation network between the Northeast region and Beijing. The route will be north and inland of the existing communication lines which hug the coast around the Bohai sea. The new line will leave Beijing heading northeast to Chengde in Hebei province then turn east through Chaoyang, and Fuxin in Liaoning province, on route to Shenyang. There will be 16 stations, which will be the last section of the Beijing–Harbin high-speed railway to be completed; the other sections of that line have been operational since December 1, 2012.

The line will have a maximum design speed of 350 km/h (220 mph)[8] though regular services will operate around 250 to 300 km/h (160 to 190 mph). Travel time between Shenyang and Beijing will be cut from the current 4 hours to just 2 hours and 17 minutes.[9]
