China Infrastructure 2019 | High Speed Railway

China is speeding forward with infrastructure, both domestic and interconnecting with other countries and regions.


In mid-2018, China has connected 30 of the country's 33 provincial-level administrative divisions by high speed railway connection and almost reached 27,000 km in total length, accounting for about two-thirds of the world's high-speed rail tracks in commercial service. The schedule is set to reach 38,000 km of high speed railway tracks by 2025.





New projects announced or in operation recently are among others a new high-speed railway in operation since this month from Hangzhou to Huangshan in Anhui province (265km), linking more than 50 scenic spots in the Yangtze River Delta, providing a tourist and business boost for the region’s economy.


The Chinese government approved construction of the first underseas high speed railway tunnel (16.2 km) last month, linking Ningbo, a port city south of Shanghai, to Zhoushan, an archipelago off the east coast, decreasing travel time from 3-4 hours to 80 minutes.


The testing of the green and smart Olympic high-speed train track from Beijing to Zhangjiakou for the 2022 Winter Olympics will be completed by the first half of 2019 (175 km), linking all Olympic venues within one hour from each other. The route is considered historically significant as the Beijing-Zhangjiakou railway, China's first independently-built railway, opened to traffic in 1909.
