Sep. 17, 2019
The Beijing section of the Beijing - Xiong'an intercity railway is expected to open at the end of this September, together with the Beijing Daxing Airport. The Beijing - Xiong'an Intercity Railway is 92.4 km (57.4 mi) long to connect Beijing and Xiong'an New Area. It departs from Liying Station, passing by Beijing Daxing District, Daxing New Airport, Gu'an and Bazhou.
This Beijing section is 34 km (21 mi) from Liying to Daxing Airport. There are only two stations along the way, Beijing Daxing and Daxing Airport. As the design speed is 250 km/h (155 mph), it only takes about 20 minutes for passengers from Beijing West Station to Daxing Airport once it opened.

As one of the most important Chinese holidays, only second to the Chinese New Year, the Mid-Autumn Holiday starts from September 13 to 15. In order to cope with the coming travel rush, train stations over the country increase a lot of trains, especially in those popular cities. Guangzhou Railway Group declared to increase 53 pairs of high speed trains and 25 pairs of normal speed types. Some of them will direct to Beijing, Shenzhen and Hong Kong. Trains from Harbin to Beijing will be increased to 23 pairs. What's more, Chengdu Railway Group plans to add more than 100 pairs of trains with additional carriages to carry more passengers.
Many more people will take trains touring or visiting on the holiday, so passengers who travel during the period should get to the railway station and collect train tickets earlier than usual in case of missing the train.
