Zhengzhou–Xuzhou high-speed railway

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.[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.

The line began construction in December 2012,[2] and began operation on 10 September 2016.
