The Shijiazhuang–Jinan Passenger, abbreviated Shiji Passenger Railway' (simplified Chinese: 石济客运专线; traditional Chinese: 石濟客運專線) is a proposed high-speed railway in China. When complete, it will allow trains to run between Shijiazhuang-Jinan at 250 km/h, shortening travel times between the two cities from the current 4 hours to 1 hour and 20 minutes.

In late January 2013, it was announced that construction work on the Shijiazhuang–Jinan Passenger Railway would begin.[1] Construction is currently scheduled to be complete by 2017.[2]
