China’s high-speed rail development is only a decade later than many countries, but the “infrastructure mania” construction speed is amazing, China’s high-speed rail has long been ahead of other countries. Today, the general manager of China Railway officially confirmed that China’s high-speed rail mileage of more than 30,000 kilometers, the total mileage accounted for two-thirds of the world.
At the 3rd World Railway Cooperation and Development Forum held on November 20, Yang Yudong, general manager of China National Railway Group Co., Ltd., announced the latest progress of domestic railways, with the total mileage of domestic railways exceeding 135,000 kilometers, of which more than 30,000 kilometers were high-speed rail.
At the beginning of this year, China Railways announced its railway construction results for the year to 2018. Pointing out that China’s total railway mileage of 131,000 kilometers, high-speed rail 29,000 kilometers, and the Vice President of the Chinese Academy of Engineering He Huawu at this meeting also mentioned that this year’s railway will be added 8,500 kilometers, of which 4,000 kilometers of high-speed rail, so this year more than 30,000 kilometers of high-speed rail mileage is not surprising.
China currently has the second-highest rail mileage in the world, behind the United States at 150,000 kilometers, at its peak, with a range of 400,000 kilometers.
But most of America’s railroads are low-speed, and there is no high-speed rail, and China’s 30,000 kilometers of high-speed rail accounts for two-thirds of the world’s total, in other words, high-speed rail, china vs other countries are 2:1.
China’s railway construction in the future will not stop, in 2025 China’s railway network planning reached about 17.5 kilometers, of which 38,000 kilometers of high-speed rail; The provincial capital high-speed rail connection, rapid access to the city, the county basic coverage.
