The Wuhan–Jiujiang passenger railway is a high-speed railway line in China's Hubei Province and Jiangxi Province, eastern China.

The Wuhan–Jiujiang passenger railway follows a similar route to the pre-existing Wuhan–Jiujiang Railway. Presumably, once the former is opened, it will take over a large portion of passenger traffic from the latter.

Construction[edit]

Its first section, from Wuhan to Daye, coincides with the Wuhan–Huangshi line of the Wuhan Metropolitan Area intercity railway. It opened on June 12, 2017.[1]

The construction of the Daye-Jiujiang section started in 2013-2014. It started operations on September 21, 2017.[2]

At Jiujiang, the Wuhan–Jiujiang passenger railway will connect with the Nanchang–Jiujiang intercity railway (opened in 2010), thus providing a continuous high-speed line between Nanchang and Wuhan.
