Chengdu–Mianyang–Leshan Intercity Railway(Chinese: 成绵乐客运专线) is a high-speed intercity railway in Sichuan Province, China that connects Mianyang, Chengdu, Deyang, Meishan, Emei and Leshan. The line is 314 km (195 mi) in length and can accommodate trains traveling at the speed of 300 km/h (186 mph). Construction began in 2008 and was completed on June 29, 2014.[1] Revenue service began on December 20, 2014.[2]

Route & service

Under the plan, the Chengdu-Mianyang-Leshan inter-city railway line starts at the upgraded Chengdu Railway Station, going north through Deyang to Mianyang, stopping at Jiangyou. Southbound, the railway line passes through Chengdu Shuangliu Airport to Meishan and Emei, ending in Leshan. Altogether ten cities, namely Jiangyou, Mianyang, Deyang, Guanghan, Chengdu, Pengshan, Meishan, Jiajiang, Emei and Leshan, are linked together from north to south. The length of the two-way passenger line is total 314 km, with a designed speed of 300 km/h.

There are 21 stations along route. Like public buses, the intercity trains run from 6am till 11pm. During peak hours, a train leaves the station every few minutes.

History

The Chengdu–Mianyang–Leshan Intercity Railway was a major reconstruction project in Sichuan following the earthquake of May 2008.[3] The National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) approved the construction of the passenger railway line running from Jiangyou to Chengdu and Emei at a cost of RMB 42 billion. Upon completion of this intercity line, it would take only 51 and 54 minutes respectively to travel by train from Chengdu to Jiangyou and E'mei situated at both ends of the line. Trains can easily pass through 10 cities within two hours.

Construction began on December 20, 2008 and was expected to take four years. The line opened on December 20, 2014.
