Hefei–Bengbu High-Speed Railway (or the Hefei–Bengbu Section of the Beijing–Taipei High-Speed Rail Corridor) is a 130.67 km high-speed rail line between Hefei and Bengbu in Anhui province. It is a part of the future Jingfu line connecting Beijing and Fuzhou.

Construction started in January 2009. The railway was opened on October 16, 2012.[1][2]

With the fastest (G-series) trains on the new line, the travel time from Hefei to Beijing South Railway Station is only four hours. Besides the Hefei-Beijing trains, there is also direct service from Hefei to Qingdao, via Jinan and the Jiaozhou–Jinan High-Speed Railway.[3][4]

The total estimated investment is 13.6 billion yuan. The design speed is 350 km/h (220 mph). It is part of the Jingfu line connecting Beijing and Fuzhou.

There are 8 stations along this line.
