Railways lead world

CHINA'S operational high-speed railways have exceeded 3,300 kilometers, leading the world in both length and technology, the Ministry of Railways said on its official Website yesterday.

Last year China finished two high-speed railways between Wuhan-Guangzhou and Zhengzhou-Xi'an, with an operating speed of 350kmh.

Before that, China built high-speed railways between some of its major cities, including Beijing-Tianjin, Shijiazhuang-Taiyuan, Qingdao-Jinan, Hefei-Wuhan and Hefei-Nanjing.

A number of new high-speed railways are being built and will be finished in the coming few years, of which the much-anticipated Beijing-Shanghai line has a length of 1,318km and a designed travel speed of 350kmh.
