Work on Ganzhou-SZ rail line kicks off
Dec. 23, 2016
Shenzhen Daily

WORK on the Guangdong section of a high-speed rail that will link Ganzhou in Jiangxi Province and Shenzhen was officially initiated in Heyuan City on Thursday.

The 436-km high-speed rail line, with an estimated investment of 62 billion yuan (US$8.93 billion), will cut the trip from Shenzhen to Heyuan to 40 minutes when it is put into operation in 2020. The whole line will have 14 stations and the trip to Ganzhou will be cut to two hours.

The railway runs through about 300 kilometers of Guangdong, passing Heyuan, Huizhou and Dongguan and ending in Shenzhen. It will have a maximum speed of 350 kilometers per hour.

The Guangdong section will cost about 45.8 billion yuan, which will be jointly funded by the Guangdong Provincial Government and China Railway Corp.

The Guangdong Party chief, Hu Chunhua, said at the launch ceremony that the rail line will enhance ties between cities around the Pearl River Delta and northeastern Guangdong cities.

Work on the Shenzhen section of the railway was simultaneously initiated in Guangming New Area on Thursday.

The civil engineering work will start in May next year.

“This rail line is very important for Guangming New Area, where construction of urban complexes and industrial parks are under way,” said Wang Yan, deputy director with Guangming Urban Development Promotion Center.

The rail line will form part of a longer proposed high-speed rail link to Nanchang, Jiangxi and will be connected with the Xiamen-Shenzhen Railway to allow access to coastal Fujian cities.

The Ganzhou-Shenzhen high-speed rail line is the southern part of the Beijing-Kowloon high-speed railway.

China's first PPP financed high-speed railway starts construction

China's first PPP financed high-speed railway starts construction

Quote:
China's first public-private partnership (PPP) funded high-speed railway project started construction in eastern province of Zhejiang Friday.
The 269-km-long Hangzhou-Taizhou Intercity Passenger Line has a total investment of 44.9 billion yuan ($6.46 billion), with private capital contributing 51 percent of the investment.
Private investors including Fosun Group, Zhejiang Geely Holding Group and Wanfeng Auto Holding Group will have a 30 year franchise period, with four years for construction and 26 years for operation.
Local governments will offer subsidies to ensure the project's smooth operation, and take ownership of the project after the franchise expires.
Giving holding status to private investors helps improve the project's management and operation and encourages more private enterprises to invest in infrastructure development, said Xu Kunlin, head of the investment department of the National Development and Reform Commission.
Over 1,000 PPPs, with a total investment of about 1.8 trillion yuan, have been inked so far this year, with private firms playing the leading role.

High-speed Kunming rail link opens
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
December 27, 2016

THE first high-speed train services from Shanghai to Kunming, capital of southwest China’s Yunnan Province, will begin next Thursday, the Shanghai Railway Bureau said yesterday.

The recently-completed Shanghai-Kunming high speed line will cut the travel time between the two cities by two thirds to only 10 hours and 36 minutes — a big relief to many local travelers going to the popular travel resort city famous for its beautiful scenery.

Kunming is also known as the Spring City due to its nice weather.

The journey on regular trains previously took 35 hours and 34 minutes.

The first three high-speed train services from Shanghai are scheduled to depart next Thursday and Friday from Hongqiao Railway Station.

Ticket sales were launched last night, priced at 879 yuan (US$126) for second class seats and 1,475 yuan for first class seats.

Running through six provinces — Shanghai, Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Hunan, Guizhou and Yunnan — the 2,252-kilometer railway is the longest east-west high-speed railroad and covers more provinces than any other service.

2,252-km journey in 11 hours by train! China's longest east-west high-speed railway starts operation


2,252-km journey in 11 hours! A high-speed railway linking Shanghai in east China and Kunming, capital of southwestern Yunnan Province, starts full operation. The Shanghai-Kunming line is the longest east-west high-speed railway in China. The launch of the line means China's high-speed rail grid has taken shape, connecting almost all provinces on the Chinese mainland.

Shanghai-Kunming high-speed rail in full operation

http://usa.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2...t_27801706.htm

A major national high-speed railway line, Shanghai-Kunming high-speed rail, which links China's coastal and inland areas, began operating fully on Wednesday.

The 2,264-kilometer railway, stretching from the coastal city of Shanghai in the east, to Kunming, capital of Southwest China's Yunnan province, boasts the longest high-speed railway spanning the country.

The Guizhou west section between Kunming and Guiyang, the last section of the Shanghai-Kunming high-speed railway, began operating on Wednesday, marking the completion of the entire railway project.

The Shanghai-Kunming high-speed railway, or Hukun high-speed railway, is made of three sections: the Shanghai-Hangzhou high-speed railway, Hangzhou-Changsha high-speed railway and Changsha-Kunming high-speed railway.

The high-speed rail connects a dozen tourist destinations, including Shanghai, Hangzhou, Nanchang, Changsha, Guiyang and Kunming.

The high-speed rail cuts Shanghai-Kunming travel time from 34 to 11 hours.

Are trains actually going to run at 330km/h on the line or is it yet another false news and trains won't exceed 310km/h just like on all other 350km/h design lines?

China starts building Guiyang-Nanning high-speed railway

http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2...t_27816904.htm

BEIJING -- Construction began Thursday on the Guiyang-Nanning high-speed railway, part of broader efforts to develop the China's less prosperous southwest region.

With a length of 482 km, the railway line will cut travel time from Nanning to Guiyang from over 10 hours to 2 and a half hours, said Ding Rongfu, chairman of China Railway Airport Construction Group Co.

With a maximum speed of 350 km per hour, the line is expected to go into service in 2022.

Construction will be difficult due to complicated geography and landform, Ding said, adding that 106 tunnels have to be excavated along the line.

China has more than 20,000 km of high-speed railways. According to a government plan, mileage will increase to 45,000 km by 2030.
