Stretching over 200 kilometres in length, the Nanning-Pingxiang high-speed railway, located in southwest Guangxi, will connect the region’s capital, Nanning, with Pingxiang, situated at the China-Vietnam border.

Construction was divided into two parts, starting in December 2018 with the 121-kilometre Naning-Chongzuo link.

This section has five stations – Nanning, Wuxu Airport, Fusuinan, Qujiunan and Chongzuonan – and currently five pairs of trains operate on the line each day.

Before entering operation, testing, inspections and safety assessments were undertaken to ensure it met the relevant standards and the track conditions, pantograph-OCS performance, train control system and communication and signalling systems were optimised.

Now this route is up and running, construction has begun on the Chongzuo-Pingxiang section of the high speed railway.
