Huang Qifan: Accelerate Construction of Major Railway Projects and Boost Economic and Social Development of Chongqing

At the Special Meeting on Integrated Transportation Hub Construction of Chongqing West Railway Station and Chongqing North Railway Station on April 7, Mayor Huang Qifan said that, related departments, districts and counties should attach great significance to railway construction, accelerate construction of major projects such as Chongqing West Railway Station and Chongqing North Railway Station, and boost economic and social development of Chongqing.
Huang Qifan said, since Chongqing became the municipality directly under the central government, it had made remarkable achievements on railway construction with vigorous support from China Railways Corporation and related state departments. Based on existing “three main railway lines and one railway branch” of Chengdu-Chongqing, Sichuan-Guizhou, Xiangyang-Chongqing and Dazhou-Wanzhou railways, new railways such as Chongqing-Huaihua Railway, Chongqing-Lichuan Railway, Suining-Chongqing Railway, Yichang-Wanzhou Railway and Nanchuan-Fuling Railway were built, forming a railway network configuration of “one hub, six main railway lines and two railway branches”; passenger and cargo terminals such as Chongqing North Railway Station, Railway Marshalling Yard of Xinglongchang , Center Station of Tuanjie Village and Baishiyi were built and put into use. As a result, the railway operating kilometrage reached 1,774 kilometers. Currently, 6 main railway lines such as Chengdu-Chongqing Passenger Dedicated Railway, Chongqing-Guizhou Railway, Yubei-Wanzhou Railway, the second line of Lanzhou-Chongqing Railway and Qianjiang-Zhangjiajie-Changde Railway and Sanjiang-Wansheng-Nanchuan Railway were under construction. Passenger and cargo terminals construction such as reconstruction and expansion of Chongqing West Railway Station and Chongqing North Railway Station, reconstruction of Shapingba Railway Station and expansion of Center Stations of Tuanjie Village and Luohuang Village were speeding up. By further increasing investment in Chongqing railway construction in this year, China Railways Corporation supported the construction of Chongqing high-speed rail and main freight railways, to promote construction of inland railway terminals in Chongqing and provide important support for development and opening-up of western China. Located at Shangqiao Village, Shapingba District, Chongqing West Railway Station was the origin station and terminal station of important railways such as Chongqing-Guizhou Railway, Chongqing-Kunming Railway and Chongqing-Hunan Railway, and the largest integrated railway transportation hub in West China with an integration of railways, subways, long-distance buses and buses. Chongqing North Railway Station had been built and put into use, was the origin station and terminal station of railways such as Chongqing-Huaihua Railway, Chongqing-Lichuan Railway and Yubei-Wanzhou Railway and under the expansion and reconstruction. Chongqing West Railway Station and Chongqing North Railway Station were both important components of Chongqing railway terminals and of great significance to further improvement of Chongqing railway function for passenger transportation. Related departments, districts and counties should cooperate with China Railways Corporation well in land-requisitioned motion and coordinated construction, to create a favorable environment for the development of railway construction and give impetus to the early completion and operation of major railway projects such as expansion and reconstruction of Chongqing West Railway Station and Chongqing North Railway Station.
