Beijing–Tangshan intercity railway

Beijing–Tangshan intercity railway is a high-speed railway connecting Beijing and Tangshan in eastern Hebei. Construction on the railway was originally scheduled to start in 2009[1] but the completion has been delayed after a nationwide rail review following the 2011 Wenzhou Rail Incident. Construction was eventually started on December 29, 2015.[2] From Beijing Sub-Center railway station to Baodi South railway station, the Beijing–Binhai intercity railway will share its northern segment with the Beijing–Tangshan intercity railway before continuing southeast-ward to Binhai railway station.[3]
