The last stretch of the Beijing-Xiongan intercity railway opened on Sunday morning, marking the full-line operation of the intercity railway, a key project for the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.
The newly opened section from the Daxing airport to Xiongan, a stretch of 59 kilometers, has four stops and will cut the journey time between the two points to 19 minutes.
The complete line is 91 kilometers long and will take passengers from Beijing West Railway Station to Xiongan Railway Station in about 50 minutes.
Trains on the railway line will run at a designed maximum speed of 300 km per hour.
The railway section from Beijing West Railway Station to the Daxing airport was put into use in September 2019.
