My mistake, I did mean Cangzhou. Yes, some of the lines are in existence but will see extra infill stations being built (9 proposed new stations between Beijing and Tianjin for example) and a regional fast commuter service installed.

On which lines are these 9 stations to be built?
There are 3 lines now between Beijing and Tianjin.
1 is the old line, with stations like Huangcun, Yangcun, Weishanzhuang and Huangtupo.
1 is Beijing-Tianjin intercity line, with 1 existing station (Wuqing) and 2 under construction (Yizhuang and Yongle)
1 is Beijing-Tianjin section of Beijing-Shanghai high speed railway, with 1 existing station (Langfang).
So where do the 9 infill stations and fast commuter services go?

Actually a newer article has clarified the situation better, it is none of the above and a new additional Beijing-Tianjin Intercity Railway is to be built with nine stations. The difference is the starting point will be Beijing East Railway Station, through Baodi to Tianjin's airport and the Binhai area. So effectively running to the east of the existing Intercity routes.

High-speed rail link for new Beijing airport
Friday, January 15, 2016



CHINA's National Development and Reform Commission has approved plans for the 78.2km Beijing - Bazhou high-speed line, which will serve the city's new international airport at Daxing, 46km south of the capital

The line will include four new stations, including an underground station at the airport, and is expected to cost Yuan 27.4bn ($US 4.2bn), including Yuan 800m for rolling stock. Construction is expected to take around three-and-a-half years

Yes, roughly speaking, although this new line will be upto roughly 70km eastwards of the current Beijing-Tianjin Intercity Railway, serving a completely different area. From Beijing eastwards to Tongzhou and Xianghe, then southwards from Baodi to Tianjin Airport and Binhai. It makes logical sense as part of the announced regional network.

The line will be extended eastward from Baodi to Tangshan, as part of the Beijing-Tangshan Intercity Railway. It will also be extended northward via Pinggu and Miyun as part of the Chengde-Tianjin segment of the announced network.

It will interchange with that line to allow access from Tianjin and Shijiazhuang to the new airport. This line will be further extended to Hengshui in the future as part of the 4 x 4 regional network.

The Sixth Plenary Session of the Chengdu Municipal Government has announced that the new Chengdu Tianfu Airport will be connected with High-Speed Rail upon opening in 2019. The new rail terminal will become the third major rail station, together with Chengdu and Chengdu East Railway Stations, with Chengdu South and Chengdu West designated as auxiliary stations. It will form part of an expanded Sichuan regional high-speed rail network, allowing connection to air travel in a similar manner to Shanghai Hongqiao.

More high-speed services to be added in 2016
http://www.ecns.cn/business/2016/01-11/195335.shtml

China will increase the number of passenger train services by 571 this year, including 563 high-speed services, according to the latest adjustment to the national railways plan.

According to the data released by China Railway Corp on Sunday, 6,284 passenger train services now run every day nationwide, with more than 60 percent of them high-speed.

The latest adjustment will further increase the capacity of high-speed links between Beijing and Shenyang in Liaoning province, Beijing and Hangzhou in Zhejiang province, and Guiyang in Guizhou province and Shenzhen, among others, chinanews.com reported.

Capacity pressure on regular services will also be relieved by additional express trains, the report added, such as between Shanghai and Shaoguan in Guangdong province, Shenzhen and Luoyang in Henan province, Lanzhou in Gansu province and Hefei in Anhui province.

According to China Railway Corp, the country was forecast to have 18,000 kilometers of high-speed railway in operation by the end of 2015, linking all the cities with populations larger than 500,000.

From January to August, 1.72 billion journeys were made on the rail network.

"In 2014, the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway transported more than 100 million people, with more than 250 trains running every day," Cai Qinghua, former chairman of Beijing-Shanghai High-Speed Railway Corp, was earlier quoted as saying by Shanghai-based The Paper.

"Even that capacity cannot meet demand in peak periods. If demand keeps growing at speed, we may need a second Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway someday," he said.

However, He Huawu, chief engineer for China Railway Corp, dismissed concerns about capacity.

"There is still enough space to improve," he said. "In the near future, the passenger flow will be split by new railway lines; for example, the Beijing-Kowloon line will ease some of the pressure on the Beijing-Guangzhou and Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railways."

In addition, the Beijing-Shanghai line was designed for speeds of up to 350 kilometers an hour, but now the operating speed is only 250 to 300 km/h.

"We have to calculate the economic feasibility if we increase the speed," he said. "We're collecting data to calculate the additional costs ... and we'll try to figure out an optimal speed that is both economic and meets the increasing demand."

Meaning just 8 slow speed services.

Well hence the use of "was forecasted“ rather than actually complete.

Sure, but the forecast was unrealistic since the date was end of 2015.

At least it's more updated than the original date of 2014 when the project got started.
