Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway construction to start

http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/bizchin...ent_825667.htm

Construction of the high-speed railway between Beijing and Shanghai, currently awaiting green light from the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), will start this year, a Chinese lawmaker said here Monday.

"The NDRC is reviewing the feasibility report of the project... It will get approved sooner or later this year," Lang Guoping, deputy head of the preparation team with the Beijing-Shanghai passenger line company, said on the sidelines of the fifth session of the National People's Congress (NPC).

Once completed, trains on the express railway will reach speeds exceeding 350 kilometers per hour, shortening the nine-hour trip to five hours.

Lang, an NPC deputy, said the railway is designed to serve 100 years and the construction "has no technological problems."

More than eighty percent of the high-speed trains will be manufactured in China and only 10 to 15 percent of trains will be imported, Lang said.

China has set up joint ventures with Siemens of Germany, Alsthom of France, Bombardier of Canada and Kawasaki Machinery Industrial Co. of Japan to produce the trains.

Early reports said that the construction of the express railway, which was supposed to start last year, was delayed because the original budget underestimated the cost of construction by more than 50 percent.

Lang dismissed such reports, saying that "there is no problem with construction funds." But he didn't elaborate.

The trains now in service between China's two largest municipalities have speeds between 140 and 160 kilometers per hour.

Finally, after all these years it's about time to start the construction. Guess BSP will get a huge chunck out of the contract.

Am I right that CRH1 looks like the German maglev, CRH2 looks like Japanese bullet train and CRH 5 looks like France TGV? And why the name jump from CRH2 to CRH5?

CRH4 is not used because 4 implies death, therefore not good for a train name. (When did communist government become so superstitious LOL)
CRH3 will be running from Beijing to Tianjin, it will be introduced this summer and based on ICE3.
CRH2 IS a Japanese bullet train. (Shinkansen E2-1000, KHI)
CRH1 is made by Bombardier.
CRH5 is made by Alstom. It was originally made by the train division of Fiat (the owner of Ferrari), but they sold it to Alstom.

This is Maglev:

Nice design whether it looks like another train or not i like it, seems a bit aggressive though.

It's the Chinese version of the newest Pendolino for the Italian Railways (Trenitalia) the ETR600, build by Alstom.

Curious, why does CRH1 and CRH2 have the same color scheme while the CRH5 is different?

The original paint job for CRH1 was different. It had some curved swaths of turquoise and some bare aluminum. Somebody decided to standardize it into white with a blue stripe.

I hope the same does not happen to CRH5. The government has some pretty dull taste; I believe it may be a culture of uniformity and conformity typical to an authoritarian history.

My fears have been realized. The domestically produced units of CRH5 have the same white with blue stripe. It has been named "hexie hao" 和諧號, meaning "harmony."

It even has the ugly name tattooed on the front in huge ugly font. AAAAAAAAAHHH!!!!!

Hmm, then why is this train on the previous post blue and yellow? Is that the only train painted like that? China should make each line different and unique instead of all being the same color scheme. I think those 3 Chinese fonts in the front is ugly.

These ones are the original factory units from Alstom. To lower cost, the rest are built locally with tech transfer. The same applies to CRH 1/2, but CRH2 came with the current scheme.
