On the morning of Oct. 16th, as the first test train of the Chengdu Railway Bureau slowly pulled out of the track, the Chongqing-Guiyang Railway was officially entering the debugging operation stage. The China Railway Shiyiju Group Corporation of CRCC is one of the important construction units of this railway project.
The Chongqing-Guiyang Railway is a fast railway connecting Chongqing and Guiyang, with a total length of 345 km and a design speed of 200 km. It belongs to the line of passenger and freight transportation. The line runs through the mountainous area of Karst in Southwest China, within 320 bridges and 145 tunnels. The length of the bridges and tunnels accounts for more than 80% of the total line. The China Railway Shiyiju Group Corporation finished the pipe laying construction with 8 stations and 9 intervals and 382.788 km single track line laying. The Chongqing-Guiyang Railway is expected to open and operate at the end of 2017. By then, the time from Chongqing to Guiyang will be shortened from more than 9 hours to less than 2 hours, which is of great significance to increase the transportation capacity of the road network in Southwest China, to improve the traffic conditions from Chongqing to Guizhou, and to promote the balanced development of the regional economy.
