The Shijiazhuang–Jinan passenger railway, abbreviated Shiji passenger railway (simplified Chinese: 石济客运专线; traditional Chinese: 石濟客運專線; pinyin: Shíjǐ Kèyùn Zhuān Xiàn) is a high-speed railway operated by China Railway High-speed, running between Shijiazhuang and Jinan, the provincial capitals of Hebei and Shandong, respectively. The line will additionally pass through and serve cities of Hengshui, Cangzhou and Dezhou.[1] Traditionally, passengers travelling east from Shijiazhuang towards Shandong would need to detour towards Beijing or Tianjin. Its completion allowed trains to run directly between Shijiazhuang and Jinan at 250 km/h (160 mph), shortening travel times between the two cities from the previous 4 hours to 1 hour and 20 minutes.[2]

In late January 2013, it was announced that construction work on the Shijiazhuang–Jinan passenger railway would begin.[3] The line started to operate on December 28, 2017.[4]
