Chengdu–Pujiang intercity railway, also known as the Cheng-Pu Express Railway, is a regional railway operated by China Railway High-speed within Sichuan province. It will connect the provincial capital of Chengdu with south-western cities along the western edge of the Sichuan Basin to Pujiang. It will start at Chengdu West Railway Station and will terminate and connect with the planned Chengdu–Ya'an intercity railway at Chaoyang Lake Railway Station. It will be built as a National Railways Class I, double tracked electrified line with a design speed of 200 km/h (120 mph) and a total length of 99 km (62 mi). Construction and management of this line has been conducted by a joint venture limited liability company between Chengdu Metro and Chengdu Railway Bureau.[1]

Profile[edit]

Chengdu–Pujiang intercity railway begins in Chengdu at Chengdu West Station, branching off the Chengdu Ring Railway to travel westwards via Wenjiang, Chongzhou, Dayi County, Qionglai and Pujiang County. Preliminary land acquisition and demolition work was carried out by the end of 2012, allowing for construction to begin. There is a total of 12 railway stations, Chengdu West, Shuangliu North, Wenjiang (elevated), Yangma, Chongzhou (elevated), Longxing, Dayi (elevated), Wangsizhen, Qionglai (elevated), Xilai, Pujiang and Chaoyang Lake.[2]
