Beijing to build railway station north of Chang'an Avenue

(Chinanews.com)    17:04, July 01, 2015

Beijing plans to build a new train station north of Chang'an Avenue, a major thoroughfare, though its specific location is yet to be decided, according to the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC).

Initially, Xizhimen was considered an ideal location for Beijing North Station before it was taken off the board because the area is already crowded, said Li Guoyong from the commission.

Beijing's urban traffic is under pressure because its three major railway stations - Beijing Station, Beijing West Station, and Beijing South Station – are all located south of Chang'an Avenue.

Running through the heart of Beijing, the avenue is the road runs directly in front of Tian'anmen gate and to the north of Tian'anmen Square. It is associated with a number of important events in Chinese history.

China is also reorganizing a plan to construct inter-city railway systems between Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei province. This initiative was approved by the State Council in 2004.
