I was entrusted by the Deputy Secretary General of the Provincial Government Zhao Jianjun to preside over this news briefing. First of all, Zhu Peide, the deputy director of the Provincial Railway Office, is invited to introduce the relevant situation of the provincial railway planning.
Zhu Peide (Deputy Director of the Provincial Railway Office): Dear friends in the press, good afternoon! Many thanks to friends in the press for their long-term care and support for the construction and development of Jiangsu Railway! For a long time, the Provincial Party Committee and the Provincial Government have always placed railway construction, especially the development of high-speed rail, in a very prominent strategic position, seizing opportunities, making scientific decisions, and accelerating the construction and development of the province. Especially since the 19th CPC National Congress, the Provincial Party Committee and the Provincial Government have thoroughly implemented the socialist ideology with Chinese characteristics in the new era of Jinping and important guiding spirits on the development of transportation and railways. They have successively made "mainly me, systematic planning", "Northern Jiangsu breakthroughs, A series of decision-making deployments such as the promotion of Central Jiangsu and the optimization of southern Jiangsu "clearly require the railway to be the main battlefield for the construction of the province's transportation infrastructure and accelerate the construction of" Jiangsu on the track ". In accordance with the decision and deployment of the Provincial Party Committee and Provincial Government, the whole province worked together to make up the short board of the railway, implemented multiple measures to implement “curve overtaking”, and ran out of the “acceleration” of Jiangsu railway construction in the new era. According to the requirements of the ventilation meeting, I will give a brief introduction to my friends about the general situation of Jiangsu railway construction and development.
I. Basic Situation of Jiangsu Railway Construction and Development
After several years of high-intensity and large-scale centralized construction, the situation of Jiangsu Railway's "South Jiangsu has no road and no network and North Jiangsu has no road and no network" has been greatly improved. At the end of last year, with the opening of the Qingyan Railway, the province has a total of 21 railways in operation with a total mileage of 3126 kilometers, of which 1811 kilometers are high-speed railways and 846 kilometers are high-speed railways with speeds above 250 kilometers per hour. Tomorrow, with the completion of the Xusu Huaiyan High Speed Rail and the Lianhuai High Speed Rail, the total railway mileage of the province will reach 3550 kilometers, of which 2235 kilometers are high-speed railways, and 1270 kilometers are high-speed railways with speeds above 250 kilometers per hour. Increased by 29%, high-speed railways increased by 77%, and high-speed railways with speeds above 250 kilometers per hour increased by 57%. The five cities in northern Jiangsu have fully entered the era of high-speed railways, and all 13 districts and cities in the province have access to trains.
At present, there are 6 railways under construction in the province with a total mileage of 1088 kilometers and a total investment of about 200 billion yuan. It continues to rank first in all provinces (cities and districts) in the country. These 6 railways are: Huaiyang Section of Lianhuaiyang Railway, Lianxu High Speed Railway, Shanghai-Tongzhou Railway Phase I, Yantong Railway, Southern Jiangsu Inter-city Railway, Ninghuai Railway Jiangsu Section. This is the basic situation of the current railway construction in Jiangsu.
2. Main Practices of Jiangsu Railway Construction and Development in Recent Years
Thanks to the strong leadership of the Provincial Party Committee and the Provincial Government, the concerted efforts of the relevant departments at all levels throughout the province, the full understanding and selfless support of the broad masses of the people, especially the strong support of the National Railway Group, in recent years, the railway construction in Jiangsu has achieved super Routine development. Judging from the development of the province in the past two years.
(1) Actively promote the transition from following development to systematic planning, and accelerate the improvement of the provincial railway planning support system. For a long time, the development of Jiangsu Railway was mainly dominated by the state in terms of planning research and construction timing. In this case, the province took the initiative to make every effort to get as many projects as possible into the "general plate" of national planning. . In July 2016, the National Development and Reform Commission formally issued the "Medium- and Long-Term Railway Network Plan (2016-2030)", which proposed to build a high-speed railway network with the "eight vertical and eight horizontal" main corridor as the skeleton, regional connection lines, and intercity railway supplements. . Among them, the “two vertical and two horizontal” main passages along the coast, Beijing-Shanghai, Luqiao, and Yangtze River pass through our province, and there are a total of Lianxu, Yantong, Sunan Yanjiang, Husu Lake, North Yanjiang, Tongsujia, Zhenxuan, Hexin Nine projects, including Shanghai Stock Exchange Phase II, were included in the plan.
Since the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China put forward the strategy of “Strengthening the country through transportation”, the Provincial Party Committee and the Provincial Government have further optimized the top-level design of the railway construction in our province, and made a major decision of “focusing on me and systematically planning”. Immediately, led by the Provincial Development and Reform Commission, the Transport Department, the Railway Office, and other relevant departments, including the Railway Group, fully cooperated to promote the province's railway planning into a new phase of "mainly me" revision. The first is to include railway construction as a "most urgent task" in major transportation planning. The provincial government issued the "Plan for the Comprehensive Three-Dimensional Transportation Corridor of the Yangtze River Economic Belt in Jiangsu Province", which clearly requires "the establishment of a multi-level, integrated rail transit network consisting of national trunk railways, inter-city railways, municipal (suburban) railways, and urban rails. 'Jiangsu on track' ". The second is to use the intercity railway as the "most important breakthrough" to promote independent planning. The National Development and Reform Commission is requested to formally promulgate the "Plan for the Construction of Intercity Railways along the Yangtze River Cities in Jiangsu Province (2019-2025)" to provide superiority for 8 projects including Ninghuai, Ningxuan, Yangzhen Ningma, Yantaixi Changyi, and Suxi Changxu Planning support. Third, the promotion of Nanjing's prime position as the province's strategic improvement hub layout. China National Railway Group and the Provincial Government are requested to jointly approve the "Master Plan of Nanjing Railway Hub (2016-2030)" to further optimize the layout of the "meter" radial road network consisting of 8 to 15 lines centered on Nanjing.
(2) Actively promote the transformation from conventional development to innovation, and accelerate the implementation of planned projects. Obtaining planning support is only the first step. The key is to take the initiative to push ahead with early work and achieve construction as soon as possible. In this respect, the "four transformations" are mainly realized: First, the project implementation is to be transformed from "leading" to "instructing" by the National Railway. While obtaining the approval of the "Plan for Inter-city Railway Construction in Jiangsu Along the River Agglomerations of the City", the project approval authority was devolved from the national level to the provincial level, that is, the construction of inter-city railway projects within the plan is no longer led by the National Railway Group. On this basis, the National Railway Group is requested to give guidance in connection, construction, operation management, etc., and issue feasibility consulting opinions and provide major technical support for our province. The second is to promote the transition of the work path from “forward” to “reverse”. The routine route of the project was changed. At the beginning of the year, a preliminary work list and a road map were drawn for each planned start-up project, and the time limit and compression cycle were reversed. Adhere to "reverse thinking", development and reform, land, planning, environmental protection, water conservancy and other departments participate in the preliminary work in advance, and provide guidance to achieve the fastest completion of various prerequisites such as site selection, land pre-review, and environmental impact assessment. Handle. The third is to promote the change in the way of approval from "serial" to "parallel". The preliminary work of the railway project involves many specialties and is highly systematic. It takes a certain period of time to handle the approval procedures. We have always carried forward the "shop small two" spirit and sent a person or stationed or seamlessly connected with relevant units to cooperate with the on-site office to speed up the process of signing approval. The fourth is to promote the implementation of responsibility shift from "commissioning" to "leadership." Rely on the strength of the high-level coordination of the Provincial Party Committee and Provincial Government to decompose and implement the goals and tasks of the preliminary work; adhere to the "monthly meeting" system, and report to the provincial government to hold a special meeting to conduct timely research on major issues in the preliminary work. Various departments and local governments along the line actively take the initiative to receive tasks and work together to ensure the advancement of the preliminary work. In the past, the preliminary work cycle of a railway project required about 3-5 years, and the southern Jiangsu inter-city railway started to be completed in about 1 year. Ninghuai On the basis of the planning approval at the end of last year, the intercity railway started construction in more than eight months, setting the "Jiangsu Speed" in the history of high-speed railway construction.
As of now, of the nine projects in the State's "Medium- and Long-Term Railway Network Plan" involving Jiangsu, three projects including Lianxu, Yantong, and Nanyanjiang River have been under construction; preparations for the two phases of the province's Husu Lake and Shanghai Tongtong have been completed. Basically ready; North Yanjiang and Tongsujia (甬) are working hard to advance the preliminary work to create conditions for the next year's construction; Hexin Railway strives to have the construction conditions as soon as possible; Zhenxuan Railway plans to introduce the land to Xuancheng due to changes in functional positioning Adjusted to Hangzhou, plans to start construction in the "14th Five-Year Plan". Among the eight projects covered by the "Plan for the Construction of Inter-city Railways along the Yangtze River in Jiangsu Province" and "The General Plan of Nanjing Railway Hub", the construction of the Ninghuai Intercity Railway has begun; Ningxuan Railway, Yangzhen Ningma Railway Lukou Airport Section and The Beijing-Shanghai Railway Nanjing Junction project strives to start in the early stages of the 14th Five-Year Plan; all projects of the Yangzheng-Ningma Railway, Yantai-Xinyi-Changyi Railway, Su-Xi-Chang Express Line, Suzhou via Dianshan Lake to Shanghai, etc. Construction.
(3) Actively promote the transition from enhanced security to higher quality, and coordinate and accelerate the construction of railway projects under construction. First, construction guarantees continued to increase. Establish and form the main provincial leaders to personally plan and promote, organize the provincial leaders' regular meetings, the provincial railway office to take the lead, the provincial development and reform commission to focus on planning, the provincial railway group as a market player to promote construction, the relevant provincial departments to jointly promote, and local governments At the same time, the provincial and provincial cooperation consultation platform is further optimized, and a tripartite working consultation mechanism between the Provincial Railway Office and the Shanghai Bureau Group and the Provincial Railway Group is established once a month to achieve coordinated operations and integrated promotion. Second, construction investment continued to grow. Last year, the province completed a total investment of 42.3 billion yuan, a record high. It is expected that this year will exceed the annual investment plan of 49.3 billion yuan. In 2020, it is planned to increase by about 10% on the basis of this year. Third, the construction pattern continued to be optimized. At present, a rolling development pattern of railway projects of “starting a batch, opening a batch, continuing a batch, and reserving a batch” has been formed each year. Last year, the construction tasks of 3 new projects and 2 expansion and reconstruction projects were completed, and new railways were added. 335 kilometers; two projects will be completed this year, with an additional 424 kilometers of high-speed rail; some new projects will be opened to traffic next year. While greatly improving passenger capacity, we will speed up the construction of the railway freight transport system, promote the construction of the Xuzhou Huaihai International Land Port and the National Railway Logistics Center, and start the construction of a railway branch line from the Nantong Port Seaport Area to the Tongzhou Bay Port Area. The special railway of Taicang Port Area is about to start Construction, another 14 special lines were included in the project library by five ministries and commissions such as the National Development and Reform Commission. Fourth, the people's sense of gain in railway construction continues to increase. Last year, there were only five cities in southern Jiangsu and Xuzhou Tong high-speed rail. This year, Lianyungang, Huai'an, Yancheng, and Suqian will be added. Four cities in Nantong and Yangzhou will be added next year. The "14th Five-Year Plan" will achieve full coverage. Every effort was made to create conditions to improve the ride experience of the masses. With the strong support of the Shanghai Bureau Group, the second phase of the Ningqi Railway successfully opened the "Hulk" EMU. The first phase of the Lianyungang Municipal Railway was basically completed and trial operation has begun. The railway will be opened to traffic at the end of the year; the management of safety hazards along the railway will be strengthened, and the greening and landscaping of the environment along the railway will be promoted as a whole. This year, when the two railways are opened to traffic, a "green ecological corridor" will be established, setting a new benchmark for railway green development in the province.
Overall, the magnificent picture scroll of the Jiangsu Railway from the depression to the forefront of the country is rapidly unfolding. In summary, the "Northern Jiangsu breakthrough, Jiangsu central promotion, and southern Jiangsu optimization" proposed by the Provincial Party Committee and Provincial Government, if an evaluation is required In this case, Northern Jiangsu has shown a situation of breaking the situation. Central Jiangsu is about to break out of the cocoon. Southern Jiangsu will continue to break the waves, and "Jiangsu on the track" will get closer and closer.
3. Prospects for the next stage of Jiangsu railway construction and development
At present, Jiangsu railway construction has entered a brand-new stage of "systematic planning and integrated promotion". We will closely focus on the decision-making and deployment of the Provincial Party Committee and the Provincial Government, with the guidance and assistance of the National Railway Group, and with the full support of relevant departments in various places, we will go all out to push the provincial railway industry to a new level. The first is to closely focus on national strategies and high-quality development requirements, and constantly optimize and improve the road network layout. Accelerate the construction of a comprehensive three-dimensional transportation corridor in the Yangtze River Economic Belt with a railroad as the backbone, carefully plan the Jiangsu chapter of the "Yangtze River Delta on the track", and scientifically coordinate the integrated development of the "four networks" of high-speed rail, intercity railways, suburban railways and urban rails. Cargo transportation will be promoted as a whole, and a multi-level and three-dimensional rail transportation network will be accelerated. The second is to closely focus on the decision-making and deployment of the Provincial Party Committee and Provincial Government, and make every effort to accelerate the construction of "Jiangsu on Track". Next year, we will strive to start the construction of the North Yangtze River high-speed railway and the Tongsu-Jiajing railway, and fully build the first phase of the Lianhuaiyang railway, the Lianxu high-speed railway, and the Shanghai-Tongzhou railway. 534 kilometers of high-speed railway above kilometers, the province's total railway mileage will exceed 4,000 kilometers, and high-speed railway will exceed 1800 kilometers; the 14th Five-Year Plan will start as soon as possible the railways of Ningxuan, Yangzhen, Ningma, Yantaixi Changyi, and Suzhou-Xinchang Express Line By 2025, "Jiangsu on the track" will be fully completed, forming a "three vertical and four horizontal" high-speed railway network and a 1.5-hour traffic circle from Nanjing to other districts and cities. Reached about 4,800 kilometers. The third is to focus on the construction of "people-satisfied transportation" and continuously improve the people's sense of access to railways. Regarding the people's demand for high-speed rail travel as the primary pursuit of railway construction, by the end of the "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan", high-quality access to all districts and cities within 2 hours to Nanjing, and other districts and cities within 2.5 hours to Beijing 5 Hourly access; by the end of the “Fifteenth Five-Year Plan”, 1.5 hours of access to Nanjing and all other districts and cities, and 5 hours of access to all central cities in the country, allowing more people in the province to achieve “ Get on the high-speed rail at your doorstep ”.
Speeding up railway construction, blueprints have been drawn, and a long way to go. Under the guidance of Xi Jinping's new era of socialist ideas with Chinese characteristics, we will closely follow the provincial and provincial government's general requirements for "integration and high quality" of railway construction and development, and strive to implement them day by day. We have fulfilled the promises made to the people one by one. We have worked hard to write a new chapter in the construction of the Jiangsu Railway, a strong country in transportation, and make new and greater contributions to the construction of a new Jiangsu province that is "strong, rich, beautiful, and high!"

In the following, Chen Wanjun, Minister of Publicity and Press Spokesperson of the Party Committee of China Railway Shanghai Bureau Group, is invited to introduce the operation of Xu Suhuai Salt High Speed Rail and Lianhuai High Speed Rail.
Chen Wanjun (Director of the Propaganda Department and Press Spokesperson of the Party Committee of China Railway Shanghai Bureau Group): Good afternoon, journalists and friends! I am very happy to participate in today's press conference. First of all, on behalf of China Railway Shanghai Bureau Group Co., Ltd., I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Jiangsu Provincial Party Committee, the provincial government, party committee governments at all levels along the line, and people from all walks of life for their long-term care and support for railway work. According to the arrangements of this press conference, I will introduce the construction and operation of the Xuyan high-speed railway and the Lianhuai section of the Lianzhen high-speed railway. It mainly introduces three aspects:
First, the construction of Xuyan high-speed rail and Lianhuai high-speed rail Lianhuai section
After the joint efforts of the majority of railway builders, the Xu Suhuai Salt High Speed Rail and the Lianhuaiyang High Speed Rail Lianhuai Section, which have attracted much attention from the people of Jiangsu, will be opened and operated on December 16. From tomorrow, the five cities of North Jiangsu will be connected to the national high-speed rail network, and will move into the era of high-speed rail. The 13 districts and cities in Jiangsu Province will realize city-to-city transportation.
Xuyan High Speed Rail and Lianzhen High Speed Rail were jointly constructed by China National Railway Group Corporation and Jiangsu Province. The Xuyan high-speed railway has an operating mileage of 313 kilometers. It is currently the longest high-speed railway line in Jiangsu Province. It passes through Xuzhou, Suqian, Huai'an, and Yancheng. The design speed is 250 kilometers per hour. Xuzhou East, Guanyin Airport, Suining, Suqian , Siyang, Huai'an East, Funing South, Jianhu, Yancheng and other passenger stations, the initial operating speed of 250 kilometers per hour. The new line of Lianhuai section of Lianzhen high-speed railway has an operating mileage of 105 kilometers. It connects to Dongji Station of Lianyan Railway, passes Guanyun County, Guannan County, Lianshui County, and Huaian City. It intersects with Xuyan High Speed Railway at Huaian East Station.

Construction of the two high-speed railways began on December 28, 2015 and March 11, 2016, respectively. Since the start of construction, the vast number of builders, with the strong support of the railway, local relevant departments, and the people along the line, have been working day and night to overcome difficulties, cooperate closely and push forward with all their strength. During the construction process, the majority of railway builders overcome difficulties such as poor geological conditions along the route, high proportion of line bridges, high risk of station reconstruction, and difficult site management. With safety and quality as the core, they focus on creating green, high-quality, humanistic, and ecological Environmental engineering, vigorously promote lean construction, intelligent construction, successfully implemented a number of technological innovations such as key technologies for the overall improvement of large-span steel truss structures, bridge automation monitoring technology, and the use of lightweight concrete for road-bridge transitions; creating a quality passenger station The project incorporates regional cultural characteristics into the design of the station building, and adds regional cultural elements to the station waiting hall, ticket office, and exit tunnels. For example, Xuzhou East Railway Station adds elements of Han culture, red culture, and the century-old development of the railway. Suqian Station Adopting Chu-Han cultural elements, Huai'an East Railway Station adopts the design concept of "Da Xiang Xiangyu, with a sincere heart". The design of the station building is like a flying dad. It means that Huaian is the hometown of Premier Zhou Enlai, and it also refers to Premier Zhou Enlai's dream of China taking off. , Yancheng Station Highlights Haiyan Culture, Wetland Culture and New Fourth Army Red Elements, the train station a showcase local culture of the window.
In order to ensure the high-quality opening and operation of the Xuyan high-speed railway and the Lianhuai section of the high-speed railway in Lianzhen, the railway department carefully organizes relevant units, strictly complies with various regulations and standards, and conducts joint testing, inspection and acceptance, and safety evaluation of various professional railway equipment. Comprehensive optimization and adjustment of conditions, bow network performance, train control, communication signal system, etc., comprehensively installed and tested service facilities such as ticket sales and waiting at stations, meeting the requirements for safe and stable operation of high-speed railways, and currently have operational conditions.
Second, the operation of Xuyan high-speed railway and Lianhuai section of Lianzhen high-speed railway
All sectors of the society are very concerned about the operation information of the Xuyan High Speed Rail and the Lianhuai Section of the Lianzhen High Speed Rail. Yesterday, we have released information about tickets for the Xuyan high-speed rail and the Lianhuai section of the Lianhuai high-speed rail starting at 12 o'clock on December 14th. Specific service information such as train times and times can be found on the railway 12306 website, WeChat, and the client. Inquire.
According to the opening operation plan arrangement, in the initial stage of operation of Xuyan High Speed Rail and Lianzhen High Speed Rail Lianhuai Section (December 16 to December 29), 11 pairs of action trains will be arranged, including 7 pairs from Xuzhou East to Yancheng, and Xuzhou East to Lianyungang 3 pairs, Yancheng to Guiyang North 1 pair. In the future, travel time from Yancheng to Huai'an, Suqian, Xuzhou and other directions will be greatly shortened. Among them, the fastest G4688 / 9 times from Yancheng to Huai'an was 32 minutes and the fastest D5670 to Xuzhou was 1 hour 49 minutes. The fastest D5685 / 8 times from Huai'an to Xuzhou East, 68 minutes, and the fastest D5689 / 92 times from Huai'an to Lianyungang, 57 minutes. This is our operational arrangement for the first phase.
On December 30, the national railway will implement a new train map, and these two new lines will be included in the new train map of the national railway. Xuyan high-speed rail and Lianhuai high-speed rail Lianhuai section will greatly increase the number of trains, reaching 28 pairs. Among them, 22 pairs of daily trains will be arranged, 3 pairs of trains will be added on weekends, and 3 pairs of trains will be added during peak periods of holidays. The increase in transportation capacity has made it possible for passengers along the line to choose more travel directions, and the journey time has been greatly reduced. Taking Yancheng as an example, Yancheng runs Beijing, Zhengzhou, Guiyang, Chongqing, Shenyang and other multi-directional high-speed rail trains. The running time is 5 hours 43 minutes, 3 hours 38 minutes, 12 hours 30 minutes, 11 hours 43 minutes, and 12 hours 50 minutes. Among them, the departure of the high-speed train to the direction of Beijing is 1 hour and 09 minutes shorter than the running time of the current high-speed train. Taking Huai'an as an example, Huai'an runs multi-directional high-speed trains such as Beijing, Nanjing, Shanghai, Xi'an, and Lanzhou. The running time is 4 hours 57 minutes, 3 hours 11 minutes, 5 hours 15 minutes, 6 hours 06 minutes, and 8 hours 35. In minutes, the fastest running time from Huai'an to Xuzhou and Lianyungang is only 63 minutes and 50 minutes respectively, which is 5 minutes and 7 minutes shorter than the initial opening time, which greatly facilitates the travel of the people along the line.
The Xuyan high-speed railway and the Lianhuai high-speed railway linking the Huai'an coastal area and hinterland will form the high-speed railway network in the North Jiangsu area together with the Huai'an-Zhenjiang section of the Lianzhen high-speed railway and the Yancheng-Nantong railway under construction. At the same time, the Xuyan high-speed railway and the Lianhuai section of the Lianzhen high-speed railway are connected to the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway and the Zhengxu high-speed railway through the Xuzhou railway hub. They are connected to the Qingyan railway in Lianyungang and Yancheng respectively. The pressure of the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway's busiest southern section greatly facilitates mass travel along the line, and is of great significance for accelerating poverty alleviation in the old revolutionary areas of northern Jiangsu, promoting regional economic and social development, and facilitating higher-quality integrated development in the Yangtze River Delta region.
Third, tips on the operation of Xuyan high-speed railway and Lianhuai section of Lianzhen high-speed railway
The opening of the Xuyan high-speed railway and the Lianhuai section of the high-speed railway in Lianzhen will bring some new changes in daily travel to residents and passengers along the line. Here are two reminders:
First, we must pay attention to new changes in security. After the two new lines are opened, the high-speed railway catenary wires and their connected components will carry 27,500 volts of high-voltage electricity, which is equivalent to 125 times the 220 volts of household electricity. Therefore, residents are reminded not to enter within 2 meters of the catenary Danger zone, do not touch the electrified railway contact net or throw items to the contact net through any object, do not lift kites, balloons and other low-altitude floating objects within 500 meters on each side of the electrified railway, and do not climb railway locomotives Over the top of the vehicle. Especially when flying kites along the line, there are some scattered suspended matter, which will greatly endanger the operation safety of electrified railways and high-speed railways. In severe cases, it will cause line interruption. Taking this opportunity, I also urge media reporters to help us appeal to the people along the line to jointly protect the safety of high-speed rail line equipment and facilities and jointly ensure the safety and smooth flow of the high-speed rail.
Second, we must pay attention to new changes in travel. In order to promote energy-saving and environmental protection, and green travel, the two new lines will simultaneously enable e-ticketing from the date of opening. In other words, the majority of passengers no longer need to take out traditional paper tickets in advance, but directly swipe the second-generation ID card or mobile phone two-dimensional code to quickly enter the station to check the ticket and take the train. No. and seat number are seated. If there is no need for reimbursement, there is no need to print out a reimbursement voucher to jointly contribute to environmental protection.
Finally, I would like to thank once again the friends from all walks of life, especially journalists, for their care and support for railway work. We will, as always, accelerate the development of railway construction and continuously improve the quality of services. Develop and build a "strong, rich, beautiful and high" new Jiangsu and make new contributions we deserve. Together with local comrades, the railway department has stepped up to build a "new Jiangsu on the track". According to the headline on the front page of today's Yanfu Mass News, "Get on the express train of happiness and head for a better tomorrow". thank you all!
Wei Wei (Director, Information Coordination Office, Provincial Government Office): Thank you, Minister Chen Wanjun. Now, friends of reporters can ask questions about interesting issues.
Reporter of Central Radio and Television Central Broadcasting Corporation: I would like to ask Minister Chen: How will these two railways be put into operation will help the coming Spring Festival? The second question is what arrangements will be made for railway construction in the Yangtze River Delta next year?
Chen Wanjun (Head of the Propaganda Department and Press Spokesperson of the Party Committee of China Railway Shanghai Bureau Group): The opening of the two new lines before the end of the year will have a great promotion effect for the upcoming Spring Festival. With the opening and operation of the two new lines, the five cities in northern Jiangsu have fully entered the national high-speed rail network, and Huai'an and Suqian have ended the history of inaccessible high-speed rail, and 13 districts and cities in Jiangsu have achieved city-to-city traffic. In this case, the two high-speed railways plus the existing new-long railway and the Lianyan Railway, including the Ningqi Railway in Central Jiangsu, will have a more complete railway network in North Jiangsu and Central Jiangsu, and the transportation capacity will be further enhanced. Next year's Spring Festival travel, passengers traveling to and from northern Jiangsu and Central Jiangsu will be more convenient and their choices will be more diversified. It turned out that these places have very limited transportation capacity. There is only one new long railway. After the Spring Festival begins on January 10 next year, Huai'an and Suqian will usher in the first spring transportation of the high-speed rail era. Transportation capacity will be greatly improved. Take Yancheng and Huai'an as examples. During the Spring Festival next year, with Nanjing, Beijing, Lanzhou, Xi'an, Qingdao, Changsha, Guiyang as the main direction, Yancheng plans to open 24 pairs of action trains, 14 pairs of regular trains, 5 pairs of passenger trains, and 1 pair of ordinary trains. Yes, Huai'an plans to open 31 pairs of action cars, 5 pairs of temporary passenger cars and 11 pairs of regular speed passenger cars. According to this train capacity estimation, compared with the 2019 Spring Festival, it is estimated that the railway transportation capacity in Huai'an and Yancheng will increase by nearly 200% in the 2020 Spring Festival, which will bring different experiences of the Spring Festival to the masses along the northern and central Jiangsu. We will go all out to make preparations for all aspects of the Spring Festival, make the first high-speed railway Spring Festival in Northern Jiangsu, serve the masses of passengers with a new look, and bring a different experience of the Spring Festival to the masses of passengers and people along the line. This is about the first question.
The second question, I want to say, is about the Yangtze River Delta Railway. Director Zhu and President Lu just introduced that the CPC Central Committee and the State Council recently issued an outline of the Yangtze River Delta's integrated development plan, and put forward clear requirements for building a "Yangtze River Delta on the track". According to the outline of the Yangtze River Delta integrated development plan, by 2025, the infrastructure connectivity in the region will be basically realized, and the "Yangtze River Delta on the track" will be basically completed, and the road network density will reach 507 km / 10,000 square kilometers. Several new lines have been completed. This year, the operating mileage of the railway within the Yangtze River Delta will exceed 11,500 kilometers. This year, 5 projects were opened in the Yangtze River Delta region, mainly including the Beijing-Hong Kong High-speed Rail Commercial Section, Zhengfu High-speed Rail, Xuyan High-speed Rail, and Lianzhen High-speed Rail. The Lianhuai section and Ningbo's Chuanshan Port Railway. Five new lines were put into operation, and the new line mileage was 863 kilometers, including 835 kilometers of high-speed rail. The operating mileage of railways in the Yangtze River Delta region will exceed 1,500 kilometers by the end of 2019. According to this calculation, the density of the road network has reached 321 km / 10,000 square kilometers. There is still a large gap between the 507 km / 10,000 square kilometers of the Yangtze River Delta's integrated development plan, and the construction of the Yangtze River Delta Railway is still arduous.
Specifically, next year, it will still be a very arduous year for railway construction. 2020 will be the year when a well-off society will be fully built and the "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan" will be completed. It will also be the beginning of the implementation of the Yangtze River Delta integrated development plan and the construction of a transport-rich country. In the year, the Yangtze River Delta railway construction and development tasks were arduous. We will conscientiously implement the spirit of the Fourth Plenary Session of the 19th CPC Central Committee and the Central Economic Work Conference, make every effort to "guarantee opening, construction start, and construction in progress", complete the annual railway construction tasks with high quality, and make positive efforts to build a "Yangtze River Delta on the track" contribution.
The first is the opening of insurance. In 2020, we will strive to open the southern section of the Shanghe-Hangzhou high-speed railway, that is, the Hefei-Hangzhou section, the Yantong Railway, the first phase of the Hutong Railway, the southern section of the Huaiyang Town Railway, the He'an High-speed Railway, the Xulian High-speed Railway, and the Wu-Gan Railway. 7 high-speed railways including Xuan Duan, opened 1,163 kilometers of high-speed rail, opened 32 new high-speed rail passenger stations, and will also strive to open the Suining high-speed rail, namely Yinzhou, Zhejiang to Ningde, Fujian, the three-line electrification of the Bengbu section, the Jintai railway, three ordinary speed railways The total number of lines opened will reach 10, which will be the year when the number of projects in the Yangtze River Delta region ’s railway construction history is the highest.
The second is to start construction. According to the railway construction plan, in 2020, we will strive to promote the construction of eight projects, including the Husu Lake Railway, the North Yanjiang High-speed Railway, the Tongsujiayu Railway, and the Hexin High-speed Railway. The Jinhua-Jiande Railway and the Ningwu Railway will be expanded. Cangbomen-Guxiong Section, Dafeng Port Spur Line and three ordinary-speed railways, as well as eight projects in Lujiabang Freight Yard. However, whether the project can be started on schedule requires the joint efforts of both the road and local governments to step up work together. We are trying to start 10 projects and start 8 projects.
The third is under construction. At present, the scale of railways under construction in the Yangtze River Delta is about 3,000 kilometers. We will follow the ideas of greater emphasis on safety and quality, greater investment benefits, more emphasis on service transportation, more emphasis on innovation-driven, and more emphasis on building in accordance with law. The railway construction strives to provide stronger transportation guarantee for the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta. I will answer these, thank you.
Wei Wei (Director, Information Coordination Office, General Office of the Provincial Government): Thank you, Minister Chen. The next question.
News reporter of Jiangsu Radio and Television General Station: Hello, I would like to ask President Lu. You just said in your introduction that 2020 will be the end of the "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan" and a key year for building a well-off society in an all-round way. Next year, Jiangsu Railway will enter a critical period of construction. Please tell us about the construction and operation of Jiangsu high-speed railway next year.
Lu Yuquan (Deputy General Manager of Provincial Railway Group): Thank you for your question. This topic you mentioned was just covered by Deputy Director Zhu Peide at the time of publication. Looking forward to 2020, we will usher in a period of unprecedented high-speed development in the history of Jiangsu railways, and we will also have unprecedented progress in the advancement of railways, the intensity of project construction, and the enthusiasm for integrated development. The Jiangsu Railway will carry the dream of all the people of Jiangsu, especially the people of northern Jiangsu and Central Jiangsu, and enter the new era of high-speed railway with unprecedented acceleration in Jiangsu. Under the strong leadership of the Provincial Party Committee and Provincial Government, the Provincial Railway Group will go all out to implement the strategic requirements of “Northern Jiangsu Breakthrough, Central Jiangsu Promotion, and Southern Jiangsu Optimization” determined by the Provincial Party Committee and Provincial Government, and give full play to the pioneering, service and leadership of modern railways. It will accelerate the construction of "Jiangsu on the track" and make greater contributions to advancing the integration of the Yangtze River Delta, especially the "integration within the province." According to the plan, Yantong High Speed Rail (including Tongzhang Section), Lianxu High Speed Rail, Lianzhen High Speed Rail (Huaizhen Section) and Hutong Railway (Phase 1) will be completed and operated in 2020. It is expected that by the end of 2020, the total mileage of the province's railways will be more than 4,000 kilometers, of which the total mileage of high-speed railways will double to the end of 2018 and reach 1,800 kilometers. "It connects Longhai to the north, Shanghai-Nanjing to the south, Beijing-Shanghai to the west, and East Qi The "three verticals and four horizontals" high-speed railway network of Jianghai has basically been completed, and the railway's ability to cross rivers and interconnectivity has been greatly improved, basically forming a 1.5-hour high-speed rail transportation circle from the city to Nanjing. By then, the entire northern Jiangsu area will realize the real high-speed rail network operation. Based on this year's Northbound integration into the "Beijing One-day Business Circle", it will connect southward to Shanghai and integrate into the "Yangtze River Delta Friendship Circle". That's it for me, thank you.
Reporter from China Jiangsu Net: Hello everyone, I would like to ask Deputy Director Zhu Peide of the Provincial Railway Office. In the next stage, how can we further optimize the system planning and the integrated layout of the provincial railway construction, based on high-quality shortcomings, Speed up the construction of "Jiangsu on Track".
Zhu Peide (Deputy Director of the Provincial Railway Office): Thank you for your question. Everyone knows that after the regional integration of the Yangtze River Delta has become a national strategy, there is a “Belt and Road” and a Yangtze River economic belt on the territory of Jiangsu. In addition, the integration of the Yangtze River Delta, the three major national strategies. On this basis, how can the railway serve the economic and social development and accelerate the creation of "Jiangsu on the track" on the basis of high-quality short-term compensation?
There are mainly these aspects: The tightly centered requirements of the "Northern Jiangsu breakthrough, central Jiangsu improvement, southern Jiangsu optimization" and "accelerated construction of" Jiangsu on the track "" proposed by the Provincial Party Committee and Provincial Government, the first one is to Focusing on “compensating for shortcomings, optimizing structure, and facilitating connection”, to fill in the “missing segments” of the road network and passages; the second is to hit the “bottleneck segment” of the access network; the third is to smooth the network ’s “micro "Segmentation", to solve the outstanding problems of unmatched point and line capabilities, unconnected hub nodes, and unsmooth "one kilometer" before and after, expanding the scale of the road network, improving the structure of the road network, improving the quality of the road network, and coordinating the coordinated development of the comprehensive railway hub. Realize a modern railway transportation system. Judging from the requirements for the high-quality development of the entire railway in Jiangsu, it mainly reflects three aspects: the first is to highlight integration. The province proposed to be fully integrated, the state proposed to build a "Yangtze River Delta on the track" and Jiangsu to build "Jiangsu on the track". The second is high quality. Jiangsu proposed "six high quality" development, and the railway should obey the requirements of serving the province's "six high quality" development. The third is to strongly support the construction of a strong transportation country. This is an important aspect of national strategy to better serve the economic and social development of Jiangsu. It should be said that the Jiangsu Railway has entered a stage of rapid development in the past few years. The next stage will follow the new requirements and enter a new stage of speed, quality and efficiency. Not only must a modern railway transportation system be established, but also a high-quality service system. It really allows the broad masses of the people to share the fruits of railway development, and truly realizes the Chinese dream on the land of Jiangsu through the completion of the railway. Thank you.
Wei Wei (Director, Information Coordination Office, General Office of the Provincial Government): Thank you, Director Zhu. Time is up, here is the question, if you still have questions, you can also conduct a separate interview after the meeting. Departure at 7:30 tomorrow morning to Yancheng High-speed Railway Station, and ask reporter friends to take bus Nos. 8 and 9. That's it for the press conference. Thank you.
