Chongqing North railway station is a railway station located in Yubei District, Chongqing City, People's Republic of China. It is served by the Yuhuai Railway, Suining–Chongqing Railway and Yuli Railway, and operated by the China Railway Corporation.

Name[edit]

Prior to the construction of this station at its present site, Shapingba railway station was known as Chongqing North railway station.[citation needed] It was subsequently renamed to avoid confusion and to better reflect the geographic nature of both stations.

Structure[edit]

This station consists of two separate departure halls; the eastern hall is for long distance services and the western hall is for high-speed CRH trains.[citation needed] Arrivals are through a common underground hall.

Service at this station is separated into North and South Courses. The South Course handles long distance trains to many parts of China. The North Course is currently being expanded and will handle mostly high-speed intercity services.

There is also access to the Chongqing Metro's Line 3, via South Square of Chongqingbei Railway Station station.

Service[edit]

This station currently handles most long-distance train services to and from Chongqing, whilst Chongqing railway station is closed for renovations (due to finish in 2015).[citation needed] It is also the main high-speed railway connection to Chengdu via Suining.
