The above-mentioned groups agreed to increase the running speed of the 300-plus-kilometer Chengdu East Railway Station-Shapingba Railway Station section of Chengdu-Chongqing High-Speed Railway to 350 km/h. They have completed the feasibility study of the project and are waiting for approval from relevant authorities.
