Beijing, Xiongan New Area to Build Intercity Rail to the Capital's New Daxing International Airport

(Yicai Global) Nov. 20 -- A new inter-city rail line that will link Beijing with the Xiongan New Area in Hebei province will run adjacent to Beijing's new Daxing International Airport in the southern Beijing suburb of Daxing district, CNR News reported yesterday.

Aside from the Beijing-Xiongan High Speed Railroad, which is a segment of the Beijing-Kowloon High-Speed Rail, another new inter-city rail will also be built between Beijing and Xiongan, passing through Beijing's Daxing district to Beijing Daxing International Airport and thence to Hebei province, with its terminus at Xiongan Station in Xiongan New Area.

Beijing Daxing International Airport (tentative name) is still under construction and is scheduled to start trial operation in July 2019, and the plan is to link it to the new rail line then.

China Railway solicited public opinions worldwide on the design of Xiongan Station in October and on Nov. 3, China Railway Economic and Planning Research Institute organized several consortia and design units to survey and introduce the Xiongan Station site and project, China Railway said.
