|Classification||Top Class station|
The station is located in the Chenggong District of the City of Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province. It was put into operation simultaneously with the two high-speed mainlines it serves, after five years of construction. It is also the terminal for the high-speed (D series) trains on the Kunming–Yuxi Railway.
Although Chenggong is being developed as Kunming's new city center, it is about 20 km from Kunming's current city center. Its remote location causes some complaints from city's residents. There are plans to link Kunming South railway station with Kunming railway station (located just south of the city center) by the end of 2017, enabling high-speed trains to serve Kunming railway station as well.
