Restructuring of Chongqing’s first self-operated local railway completed
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- The reporter recently learned from Chongqing Railway Group of Chongqing City Transportation Development & Investment Group Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred as Chongqing Railway Group) that the Company recently took the lead in completing the integration of the assets of Nanfu Railway Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to Nanfu Railway Company), Chongqing Wannan Railway Co., Ltd. and Sanjiang-Wansheng Branch Railway of China Railway Chengdu Group, which is the first independently operated local railway in Chongqing. The next step will be to promote the use of existing railways to run bus-based trains on the South-East Ring Railway in the metropolitan area of the main districts.
Nanfu Railway Company, under the control of Chongqing Railway Group, has jurisdiction over Fuling-Sanjiang Railway (referred to as FS Railway, which includes four lines, including Nanchuan-Fuling Railway, Sanjiang-Nanchuan Railway, Wansheng-Nanchuan Railway and Sanjiang-Wansheng Branch Railway), with a total line mileage of 229km and an existing operational mileage of 159km. The company will enrich the form of transport organization in Fuling, Wulong, Nanchuan, Wansheng and Qijiang in accordance with the operating principles of “local holding, independent operation, road-land cooperation and win-win development”.
South-East Ring Railway in the metropolitan area of the main districts of Chongqing consists of Chongqing-Huaihua Railway, FS Railway and Chongqing-Guiyang Railway. The line starts from Chongqing North Railway Station, arrives at Fuling Railway Station via Chongqing-Huaihua Railway, turns south to Nanchuan via Nanchuan-Fuling Railway, turns west to Wansheng via Sanjiang-Nanchuan Railway, arrives at Sanjiang Station of Chongqing-Guiyang Railway, goes north along Chongqing-Guiyang Railway, passes through Luohuang Railway Station, Chongqing West Railway Station, and finally arrives at Chongqing North Railway Station, forming the South-East Ring Railway in the metropolitan area of Chongqing, linking several main districts such as Liangjiang New Area, Jiangbei District, Changshou District, Fuling District, Nanchuan District, Wansheng Economic Development Zone, Qijiang District, Jiangjin District, and Shapingba District.
“The current inclusion of Nanfu Railway Company will actively seek the commencement of major projects such as new railway project from the main districts to Nanchuan and Fuling-Liuzhou Railway.” The person in charge of Chongqing Railway Group introduced the next planned bus-based trains for the South-East Ring Railway in the metropolitan area of the main districts, which will be realized through the FS Railway (133km and 3 passenger stations) under the jurisdiction of Nanfu Railway Company, which will then meet the travel and commuting needs of the people along the route on the basis of the freight function already opened.
