The Zhengzhou–Xuzhou high-speed railway is a high-speed rail line connecting the cities of Zhengzhou and Xuzhou in China.[1]

The length of the line is 362.39 kilometers and the investment is estimated to be CN¥48.62 billion. It is one of the segments of the Xulan high-speed railway, a high-speed mainline from Lanzhou to Xuzhou, paralleling the existing Longhai Railway line. Presently, the existing Xuzhou-Zhengzhou line is used e.g. by passenger trains traveling from Shanghai and Nanjing to Xi'an, Lanzhou, and points west.

It was announced in November 2012 that the construction work on the line will start the next month (December 2012). The construction project is expected to take 4 years, completing by December 2016.[2]

The line started operation on 10 September 2016.


The railway will have 9 stations:[2]
