New Rail Line to Run along Yangtze River
   2015-09-14 21:14:02    CRIENGLISH.com      Web Editor: Niu Honglin

Research has begun to build a new railway line linking 22 cities alongside the Yangtze River, the Guangzhou Daily reports, quoting sources from the Wuhan railway Bureau.

These cities will be linked from Shanghai on the east coast, passing through cities such as Nanjing, Wuhan, Chongqing and so on, all the way to Chengdu, the capital city of Sichuan Province in the southwest.

This comes as the government has approved construction of three new railway lines with a total estimated investment of 142.77 billion Yuan.

One of the approved railway lines is from Zhengzhou of Henan province to Wanzhou of Chongqing municipality and is designed to intersect with the railway along the Yangtze River.

Currently, it takes 16 hours for the train to travel from Shanghai to Chengdu through interconnecting rail lines, at an average speed of little over 124 kph.

The new railway line to be built is designed with an average speed of over 350 kph.

The National Development and Reform Commission said the projects are intended to improve current transportation efficiency and capacity alongside the railway network layout. This will promote regional economic and social development.
