Railway Galore in China!


China’s commitment and belief to efficient transportation systems roles on, this time Ganzhou and Shenzhen are the beneficiaries. The 432-kilometer rail is designed to run at a speed of 350 kilometers per hour through 14 stations. It will have two stations – Guangmingcheng Station and Shenzhen North Railway Station – in Shenzhen, and it may extend to Xili in Nanshan District.

The construction of the line is going to begin this year and the maiden trip is projected to take place in 2020. The rail will cut the trip from Shenzhen to Ganzhou, Jiangxi Province, to three hours. Investment for the project is estimated at $9.97 billion.

The report shows that two rail links will be built in Tangxia to enable trains from the Ganzhou-Shenzhen High-speed Railway to reach the Shenzhen East Railway Station and Shenzhen Railway Station through the Guangzhou-Shenzhen inter-city railway.

Another two rail links will enable trains from the Ganzhou-Shenzhen High-speed Railway to reach Guangzhou Railway Station through the Guangzhou-Shenzhen inter-city railway.

This news comes not long after the Shenzhen and Hong-Kong stock connection, which was a hugely beneficial move for the city in terms of gaining international investment and stronger rail-links are certainly not going to harm that either.

It would be difficult to find a city in China that is making more progress at this point in time.
