History
Opened July 1, 2011

The Bengbu South railway station (Chinese: 蚌埠南站; pinyin: Bèngbù-nán zhàn) is a high-speed railway station in Bengbu, Anhui, People's Republic of China, which is served by the Jinghu High-Speed Railway.

The station is a 20,000 sq. m facility, designed by architects from the University of South California.[2] Although presently the new station is located in a rather rural area outside of the city's urban core, development plans provide for a 9.27-km2 "high-speed railway station district" around the station.[2]
