The Zhengzhou–Xuzhou high-speed railway, or Zhengxu Passenger Dedicated Line, is a high-speed rail line operated by China Railway High-speed connecting the cities of Zhengzhou, the provincial capital of Henan, and Xuzhou, the largest city in northern Jiangsu.
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.
