The Nanchang–Jiujiang intercity railway (simplified Chinese: 昌九城际铁路; traditional Chinese: 昌九城際鐵路; pinyin: Chāng-Jiǔ chéngjì tiělù) is an intercity railway operated by China Railway High-speed, connecting the Jiangxi cities of Nanchang (the provincial capital) and Jiujiang. It is the first newly constructed high-speed railway in Jiangxi Province.

At Jiujiang, the railway will connect with the Wuhan–Jiujiang Passenger Railway (presently under construction; estimated time of completion, 2017), which will provide a continuous high-speed line between Nanchang and Wuhan.
