Intercity route and stations confirmed
- - - -
The projected route map, along with several sections of the rail project which will connect Changsha with Zhuzhou and Xiangtan, has been published. The regional rail network, which will extend Changsha's economic and commuter belt across much of the Xiangjiang basin region, will be one of the first such commuter lines in a country which is used to localised commutership or long distance, less frequent rail travel.
The stations have been listed below and are not expected to change (much). Project completion date is set for late 2016. 24 stations, over the 105km line will see trains pick up speeds of around 200kph in some parts. It will also stretch into the Hexi area and connect with local, soon to be opened city metro lines.
