The section, which runs between Heifei, capital of Ansei province, and Huzhou, in Zhejiang province, has 13 stations. The section completes the 795km Shangqiu – Hangzhou (Shanghehang) high-speed line, following the opening of the northern section between Hefei and Shangqiu in December 2019.
Costing around Yuan 99bn ($US 14 bn), the line has 29 stations, including five major interchanges. Up to 60 services are planned to operate daily in each direction at speeds of up to 350km/h.
The railway will ease pressure on the Beijing – Shanghai high-speed route. The project connects the provinces of Henan, Anhui and Zheijiang, and is intended to better integrate China’s central provinces with east coast cities. It is also hoped that the connections will stimulate economic growth in both central China and along the Yangtze delta.
