Interesting.
All expenditures made in 2014, or were some of them projects that were begun in previous years?

hope this,but still quite a hard job,some construction are a little conservative,especially in freight area,in US,the trains more than 20,000tons are everywhere,but in west and southern China,a 7200kw loco can only pull ,5000tons.

If I recall correctly, "8" is considered a lucky number in Chinese, so your probably right.

Yes and no. HSR yes. But even now, China on a per km area basis, has less railway network than India. So still a way to go.

Are appropriations made on an annual basis (I imagine it's a longer term budget)?

this is very interesting line that 94% of Chinese people live on the east of this line,and also the railway,so actually the railway is quite concentrated in the populous area,and the hard job for China,is not the density but the upgrading work,they have lots of work to replace the old locos,upgrade the old line.

How long is the Wuhan circle HSR line?
Does that 96,78 km length also count all three sides of the triangle where the Huangshi line branches off from the circle line?

The triangle line has not completed. Wuchang, Hankou and other stations in the triangle have not been ready yet so they will not open in June.

Now Wuhan station is the only starting point of the two lines.

That 9 matches the count on the map:
  1. Wuhan
  2. hieroglyphs
  3. hieroglyphs
  4. hieroglyphs
  5. Ezhou
  6. Ezhou East
  7. hieroglyphs
  8. Huangshi North
  9. Daye North
Do these 4 stations in hieroglyphs only have any name that could be rendered in pinyin?

Well, 36km, 7 stations, it means an average station distance of 6km. In Europe such a line could be called as commuter railway.
Can the trains in such a short distance reach their top speed?
