  The first regional intercity high-speed railway in Shandong——Qingdao-Rongcheng intercity railway, is to open tomorrow. The 316km-long railway, running from Qingdao to Rongcheng, is an important railway transportation channel for cities of Jiaodong Peninsula.

  “I have been to Qingdao, Yantai and Weihai by train respectively but never by one train,” said Du Chao to the journalist, “Then I can do it after the entire line of Qingdao-Rongcheng intercity railway is open to the public.”

  286km-long railway from Jimo to Roncheng, part of the Qingdao-Rongcheng railway, opened from Dec. 18, 2014. Till Oct. 5 of this year, the debugging of Qingdao section of the railway has been started. And now, the entire line of that railway came as we expected. Living like in one city is going to be realized after the two-year waiting.

  Using the organization mode of Guangzhou-Shenzhen and Beijing-Tianjing intercity railways, Qingdao-Rongcheng intercity railway has run large amount of train lines starting with C.

  Despite various preferential measures launched by Jinan Railway Administration, maritime tickets booking system is also established which is to set up Bohai ferry ticket windows in Qingdao Railway Station, Qingdao North Railway Station and Yantai Railway Station.

  Jimo-Rongcheng section handled 59 million passenger trips per year and 162,000 passenger trips per day. It is estimated passenger flow will soar up after Qingdao section opens.
