Tianjin West Railway Station

The Tianjinxi Railway Station (Chinese: 天津西站; pinyin: Tiānjīnxī zhàn) is a high-speed railway station in Tianjin, People's Republic of China. It's served by Jinghu Railway and Jinbao Railway and by the Jinghu High-Speed Railway.

Extension Project

In 2008, renovation and expansion works of the station began, in tandem with the construction of the Beijing-Shanghai high speed railway. After the completion of the Beijing-Shanghai High Speed Railway, and in anticipation for services of the Beijing-Tianjin Intercity Railway, Tianjinxi's platforms were increased from 13 to 24. These include 9 high-speed platforms with 17 railway lines. The reconstruction of the station building involved the creation of a new main station building with a larger waiting room, a new North-South underground connection square, baggage check-in points, and facilitated access. The new Tianjinxi station can be reached by bus, Metro (Tianjin Metro Line 1, 4, 6; Lines 4 and 6 currently not in service), taxi, or on foot. Tianjinxi Railway Station will replace the main Tianjin station to become the largest transportation hub of the city of Tianjin. The station was designed by the internationally renowned architectural firm Gerkan, Marg and Partners and was officially opened in summer 2011. The operation is part of a massive urban renovation project of the north area of Tianjin that will bring the station in the centre of a new residential and commercial development.
