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).
