You will still find wheel barrows in the most developed economy building a modern railway for the simple reason it is the most suitable equipment.

China inches closer to completing world's first 'rail above road bridge'

http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/china/2...t_29933717.htm

Engineers successfully joined together the two sections of the main arch of the Jinshajiang Bridge in Yibin city in Southwest China's Sichuan province on June 28, inching closer to completion after work began in December 2013.

The Jinshajiang River overpass, one of the key parts of Chengdu-Guiyang high-speed railway under construction, will be world's first rail-road combined bridge with railway line on top deck, according to CCTV.

The Jinshajiang Bridge, which will have a four-lane railway and a six-lane highway, is 1874.9 meters long, with a 336-meter-wide span on its main arch. The railway track will run 32 meters above the highway, the highest in the world.

A rail-road combined bridge usually has road on top. However, a road in Yibin will connect with the highway so the bridge faced height restriction. Also, considering the mountainous terrain in the area, building rail track on top meant less tunnels.

The Jinshajiang Bridge in Yibin city is part of the Chengdu-Guiyang high-speed rail, a 632.6-kilometer-long link connecting Southwest China's Chengdu city and Guiyang city.

The Chengdu-Guiyang high-speed railway is expected to open by December 2019. When completed, it would take only three hours to travel between the two cities from the current 12 hours.

It makes one wonder how much time CCTV and CD spent doing any fact-checking at all.

I once had to stand on a conventional train from Beijing to Shanghai for over 12 hours overnight, because of the 2010 summer holidays starting. So it can be all at once. The train was so tighly packed, tickets were not even checked as train guards, or passengers for that matter, could move up or down the carriages. The epitome of standing room only. While I was aware of the hassle of Golden Week crushloads on the trains, I had no knowledge of the summer holiday impact. All high speed tickets were sold out and standing room ticket on a slow train was the only thing left on a last minute need to get to Shanghai. It was one hell of an experience.

Is this newly laid track or a new stop on an existing line? From the video it looks like the Beijing-Shenzhen-Hong Kong PDL. I so much love the look of the CRH5 yet this train seems to be slow at 110 minutes compared to the 30 minutes between Beijing and Tianjin. Maybe a faster train will be placed in the future?

They say that the fastest trains take 41 minutes to 139 km Beijing-Baoding.

The CRH5 train has a top speed of 250. Enough.

Thanks for the news, it's the first line that I have pointed out in the year.

Most of the route is on Tianjin-Baoding Line

Tianjin-Bazhou section is PDL, Bazhou-Xushui section is not.

D6655: Beijing South(08:08)-Bazhou West(09:02)-Baigou(09:15)-Baiyangdian(09:28)-Xushui(09:43)-Baoding(09:58)

They will layout a new PDL linking Xiong'an and Beijing as part of Beijing-Kowloon PDL

That would be traveling on Beijing-Guangzhou PDL. This new route aims to cover the region between Baoding and Tianjin, so it is a longer and slower route as it travels partly on Baoding-Tianjin Intercity line
