Countdown to Construction! Nanjing North Railway Station will be built like this

There's a new development at Nanjing North Railway Station

Countdown to the start of construction of the station building

Striving for 2027 with the North Riverside High Speed Railway

Simultaneous opening and operation

Recently.The Preliminary Design of Nanjing North Station Station Building and Related Projects (hereinafter referred to as "Preliminary Design") was jointly approved by China Railway Group and Jiangsu Provincial People's Government.From the design scheme, Nanjing North Station resembles "the head of Yangzi River, the blossoming of Jinling flowers". From the point of view of the design scheme, Nanjing North Station resembles "the head of the Yangzi River, Jinling Blossom", which is unique in optimizing the transfer efficiency, station-city integration, and the station environment.

Approval of the Preliminary Design.Marking the countdown to the start of construction of Nanjing North Railway Station.The Nanjing North Railway Station strives to substantially start construction in the first half of this year, and will be opened for operation in 2027 in synchronization with the North Yanjiang High-speed Railway.

Station building, 6th floor

The station has 3 yards, 16 platforms and 30 lines

Nanjing North Railway Station is located at the intersection of the east-west river corridor and the north-south Guangdong-Haikou corridor, and is one of the three main passenger stations planned for the Nanjing Railway Hub.It is also the largest hub passenger station along the North Riverside High Speed Railway.The

The station is located in the Linchang area, leaning against Laoshan Mountain in the south and Zhujiashan River in the north, 10 kilometers away from the center of the main city of Jiangbei, 18 kilometers away from the center of Xinjiekou in Jiangnan, and 50 kilometers away from Nanjing Lukou International Airport.

According to the Preliminary Design, the Nanjing North Railway Station is 710 meters long in the east-west direction and 637 meters long in the north-south direction, with a total of 6 floors in the station building, including 4 floors above the ground and 2 floors below the ground, which are, in order from top to bottom, the followingElevated waiting level, National Railway platform level, National Railway exit level, urban corridor level, basement level and basement level 2The

  • The fourth floor above ground is the station level.In addition, it is equipped with high-speed railway waiting halls, intercity waiting halls, general-speed waiting halls, station-entry wide halls and elevated loading/unloading lanes;
  • The third floor above ground is the platform levelThe station is equipped with side entry wide halls and National Rail platforms;
  • The 2nd and 1st floors above ground are exit levels.In the above ground, 2 floors are arranged with the exit hall of national railways, intermediate transfer channel and railroad self-operated car park, which is flatly connected to the ground of south square; 1 floor is arranged with the city transfer channel, national railways' rapid entry hall, buses and leased social vehicles and other municipal auxiliary car parks, which is flatly connected to the ground of north square;
  • 1st basement levelLayout of the Metro Transfer Hall, Metro Line 3, North Station Expressway, as well as the net car park and the human defense booth;
  • 2nd basement levelLayout of four lines of platforms for Metro Line 4, Line 15 (planned), Line 18 (planned), and Line S4 (planned).

As the only railroad hub integrating high-speed railroad, intercity railroad and general-speed railroad in Nanjing, Nanjing North Railway Station has the ability of omnidirectional departure, and the station yard has 3 yards, 16 platforms and 30 lines, which is larger than Nanjing Station and Nanjing South Railway Station. Among them, there are 5 stations and 9 lines of high-speed railway, introducing the North Yanjiang high-speed railway; 6 stations and 12 lines of intercity railway, introducing the Ninghuai Intercity, Ningchubeng Intercity, and Shangyuanmen Railway Crossing; and 5 stations and 9 lines of general-speed railway, introducing the Beijing-Shanghai Railway and the Ningqi Railway.After the opening of Nanjing North Railway Station, the long-term annual passenger traffic is expected to reach 36.5 million.The

Efficient interchange

Easier access to the station

In rail transportation

Passing through or arriving at Nanjing North Railway Station

The subway has 5 lines

In order to realize the rapid transfer of metro passengers, Nanjing North Station creatively adopts the "double light valley, tic-tac-toe" transfer space structure.In addition, the "out-of-station elevation" of passengers has been adjusted to "in-station elevation". Metro passengers can be set up through the optical valley space within the multi-group escalator, vertical arrival on the ground 4 layer of elevated waiting level, while the ground 1 layer is also set up a rapid entry hall, greatly reducing the walking distance of the subway passengers.

In the area of road traffic

Passengers travel by cab or have a car to drop them off

There are two options for vehicles to enter the station

You can either go straight to the elevated waiting level on the 4th floor above ground to enter the station directly, or enter the drop-off space on the 1st floor above ground and enter the station through the escalators in the Optics Valley.

The "Double Valley" design not only realizes the multi-point drop-off, reasonable diversion, but also let the North Station station room has light, ventilation, the whole space seems more spacious and bright.

In addition to the "Twin Valleys."

The "double first floor" design of the North Station building

It's also a highlight.

The north and south sides of the North Station building have a terrain difference of nearly 7 meters high, "the first floor" that is, the ground floor of the 2 layer of the National Railway station level, connected to the South Square; "the first floor" that is, the ground floor of the 1 layer of the city corridor level, connected to the North Square.

Upon arrival, passengers can choose to exit from either the "Upper Level" or the "Lower Level", making it easy to arrive and convenient to use.Through the "double first floor" design. The "double first floor" design realizes the "barrier-free, multi-level" connection between the north-south urban interface and the station building, while improving the capacity, service efficiency and passenger experience of the North Station.


Nice green hub

Metro transfer hall and metro line 3 platforms on the same level combination; supporting parking from the ground, underground double layer arrangement adjusted to the ground level of the intensive arrangement, these locally adapted initiatives are further optimized spatial layout. The design of the North Station not only facilitates travelers, but also intensifies space and reduces costs. It is understood that Nanjing North Station will be most of the parking space arranged in the ground level, with more than 2,500 ground-level parking spaces, significantly shortening the time for travelers to walk to the station.

On the basis of intensive savings

The design of Nanjing North Station will also give travelers

A different kind of travel experience

Under the plum blossom shape of "Jinling Blossom", there are "ecological wide halls" in the space below the east and west petals, arranging green plants and landscaping, making the station also become the scenery on the way to travel. The security check space on the 4th floor of the station was expanded from 20 meters to 60 meters, making the space for passengers to queue up to enter the station more spacious.

As an important part of creating an ecological green hub, the roof of Nanjing North Railway Station in the shape of a plum blossom will be covered with solar photovoltaic power generation panels, which are expected to realize an annual power generation of 3 million kilowatt-hours upon completion.Used as a supplementary power source for the North Station to further reduce energy consumption and realize green developmentThe
