One hour train from Chongqing to Chengdu by the end of the year
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- The train journey from Chongqing to Chengdu within one hour will be achieved by the end of this year. Recently, the reporter learned from the comprehensive transportation hub project department of Shapingba railway station that the track construction is about to be completed. In November, the project will be debugged, and the Chengdu-Chongqing passenger dedicated train will serve people in Shapingba district.
The comprehensive traffic hub project of Shapingba railway station integrates many transportation means: high-speed railway, rail transit, bus, taxi and social vehicle, providing a seamless exchange for passengers. There are 7 floors in the station with different traffic functions. The -1 floor as bus station, the -2 as the taxi station and the high-speed railway platform, the -3, 5 and 6 as parking lots, the -4 floor as the transfer hall and part of parking garage, and the -7 is the station hall for line 9.
In addition to the traffic transfer function, the project will also provide many parking lots for Sanxia Square. According to the project department, there are plans to integrate and optimize the entrance and exit of three lines, in order to make room for building an underground parking lot.
The dedicated Chengdu - Chongqing passenger line that will be put into operation, is the third railway line after the Chongqing- Chengdu and Chengdu- Suining- Chongqing railway lines as well as the fastest line between these two cities. When completed, the travel time between the two places is expected to be shortened to about one hour and fifteen minutes. By that time, it will no longer be a joke to eat hotpot from Chengdu to Chongqing after work. (Translated by Shi Yali, Fathom Language Limited)
