New railway to link Shanghai, Nantong

CONSTRUCTION of a railway connecting Shanghai and Nantong in neighboring Jiangsu Province is expected to start early next year.
It will reduce travel time between the cities from five hours to just over one hour.
Experts have approved a bridge over the Yangtze River to allow construction of the railway to proceed. Trains on the line will travel at about 200 kilometers per hour.
The new railway will be about one hour faster than by bus.
The railway will be about 250 kilometers and will cost an estimated 48.68 billion yuan (US$7.29 billion), Shanghai Evening News reported today. Tickets will cost 70 yuan each.
