Share news
The Badaling station, which has been designed by AREP and Zhong Tie - CRECG, sits along the new high-speed railway network linking Beijing with Zhangjiakou. The line has been planned to facilitate access to the sites hosting the 2022 Winter Olympics and is part of the transport scheme for the Jing Jin Ji metropolitan region, which encompasses Beijing, Hebei and Tianjin.

The tunnel, the platforms and the station building are currently under construction beneath the Great Wall and will be located 60 metres below the surface, making it the deepest railway station in the world. This is a challenging project in terms of accessibility, fire safety and emergency evacuation. The construction works are progressing well and the station is expected to open in January 2020.

AREP is building several other stations for the Winter Olympics on the same railway line, including the Qinghe station in Beijing and the Chongli Taizhechang station near the site where the Olympics medal ceremonies will take place.

  • Client: Beijing-Zhangjiakou Intercity Railway Company
  • Partner company: China Railway Engineering Consulting Group Co., Ltd (CRECG)
  • Total station area (above ground): 2,000sqm
  • Total station area (below ground): 40,000sqm

    Le ministre des chemins de fer chinois Lu dong Fu a visité le 01 février dernier, le site de la future gare de la Grande Muraille de Chine, "Badaling Station".


Dessinéee par AREP, le gare de Badaling est située sur la nouvelle (?) ligne à grande vitesse construite entre Pékin et Zhangjiakou, conçue pour servir l’organisation des Jeux Olympiques d’hiver de 2022. La ligne participe plus largement au schéma de transport défini à l’échelle de l’immense mégalopole Jing Jin Ji qui réunit Pékin, la province du Hebei et Tianjin.
Actuellement en chantier, le tunnel et les quais "cathédral" de la gare de la Grande Muraille de Chine sont situés à 60 mètres sous terre.
Des travaux spectaculaires qui avancent a un rythme très soutenu, la gare doit etre en effet livrée dès la fin de 2020 (?).
