The Baoji–Lanzhou High-Speed Railway is a proposed high-speed railway between Baoji and Lanzhou, in China. The railway will cut the rail travel between Baoji and Lanzhou from current five hours to one hour and a half. It will connect with Xi'an–Baoji High-Speed Railway to the east and Lanzhou–Urumqi High-Speed Railway to the west. The feasibility study report has been approved by the National Development and Reform Commission. The construction work was expected to start in the first half of 2011;[2] it actually started in October 2012.[1][3][4] Work is expected to be completed in 5 years' time.[1]

Seven stations will be built on the line: Baoji South, Dongcha, Tianshui South, Qin'an, Tongwei, Dingxi, and Lanzhou West. 92% of the total length will be elevated or in tunnels. The total investment is estimated to be CN¥64 billion.[5]
