The Wuhan – Shiyan line is 399km long and has a maximum design speed of 350km/h, although trains will be restricted to 300km/h initially. The line runs northwest from Wuhan via Xiaogan, Xiangyang where it intersects another new high-speed line running from Zhenzhou southwest to Wanzhou, and Shiyan in Hubei Province. The initial Wuhan – Xiaogan section incorporates an existing inter-city railway.
CR will initially operate 30 round trips per day between Wuhan and Shiyan with a journey time of 1h 57min. The number of trains per day will be stepped up to 39 in one direction and 40 in the opposite direction when a new timetable is introduced on December 30.
