On the morning of June 28, 2022, the first freight train loaded with bauxite and steel left the Zouping railway freight yard.

Into the "green fast lane"

As the first PPP project in the field of railway transportation in Zouping, Zouping Freight Railway Special Line is jointly invested, constructed and operated by private capital parties and local governments composed of China Railway Third Bureau and other units. The innovative practice of winning can effectively promote the optimization and transformation of the industrial structure of enterprises.

The project starts from Zhoucun Station of Jiaoji Railway and ends at Zouping Development Zone Logistics Station, with a total length of 28.22 kilometers. It is a national-level double-track electrified railway with a total investment of about 6.2 billion yuan and a long-term annual freight transportation capacity of 36.7 million tons. . The main construction tasks undertaken by China Railway Third Bureau include: 31 bridges and culverts, 11.43 kilometers of road base station area, 1 new Dinggong station, 1 rebuilt Zhoucun station, new Gaowang and Guchengcun line stations, and T beams on the whole line and track laying works.

The construction of beams across Jiaoji Railway on Zouping Freight Railway was successfully completed

In order to ensure the construction safety of the existing lines, the project department earnestly implements the safety production management policy of "safety first, prevention first", coordinating the overall situation, taking multiple measures, establishing a three-dimensional safety protection system, setting up a solid barrier for site safety, and actively promoting various construction projects. The smooth realization of the node.

"We combined the leadership team's guarantee responsibility system, the operation team leadership team system and the management department's on-site inspection system, adhered to the daily supervision and inspection of safety and the investigation of potential safety hazards, established a problem database for the problems found, repeated inspection and implementation, and achieved management.
