The maps and list shown are all missing the Guangyuan-Longnan section of the Chongqing-Lanzhou HSR. This opened in January 2017. Although only conventional trains are using the section, I believe, until the rest of the line is completed at the end of this year.

Thank you very much!

It effectively entered into service on 12/26/2016 and the list is the first section: Chongqing-Guangyuan (12/26/2015). Here they explain it:
http://scnews.newssc.org/system/20161226/000735349.htm

There are two K-trains, the fastest one takes 1 h 31 m to cover 139 km. From Chongqing it is 7 h 25 m to 516 km with 9 stops. Very slow.


Does anyone know when the section Loudi (and Loudi South)-Shaoyang started?

Thanks in advance

It is not MY MAP, I "just" translated the names of cities from the Chinese language, numbered the lines and made the summary of the top left corner. Do you have a better one? Thank you!
It is the official map of the XIII Five Year Plan, at least that is said in Wikipedia in Chinese: Https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:CRHS_zhs.svg
and English: Https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:CRHS_zhs.svg
That's why I added a 17 "line" formed by "Liaison, branches, metropolitan and other sections". And it has not been easy at all.


On the other hand I have updated the last sections openings, some of them have not appeared in this thread:





Now I'll take some-I think- well-deserved vacations.

China’s high-speed trains are back on track



https://www.economist.com/blogs/grap...09/daily-chart

CHINA’S high-speed rail system, just a decade old, is now one of the biggest infrastructure projects in history. The government in Beijing has spent an estimated 2.4trn yuan ($360bn) building 22,000km (13,670 miles) of high-speed rail lines, more than the rest of the world combined. This month, six years after a maximum speed limit was lowered following a deadly crash, China's trains are getting ready to accelerate.

China’s path from railway laggard to leader has been bumpy. In 2011 the head of the country’s railways ministry was sacked for his role in a massive bribery scandal. Months later, two high-speed trains collided near the eastern city of Wenzhou, killing 40 people and injuring some 200 more. In the wake of the deadly crash, Beijing temporarily halted new rail projects and reduced the maximum speed of its high-speed trains from 350kph to 300kph. The crash outraged many members of the Chinese public, as did the government’s censorship of critical media coverage of the accident. Some internet users began referring to the high-speed railway line, called Hexie or “harmony”, as Hexue or “drinking blood”.

Today, Chinese high-speed rail appears to be back on track. The government’s five-year plan calls for 3.5trn yuan in railway investment between 2016 and 2020. By then, if all goes to plan, the network will stretch 30,000km connecting more than 80% of the country’s major cities. With ever more passengers riding the speedy trains, many of the rail lines are now profitable. Their international reputation has also improved. In 2014 a group of World Bank researchers lauded the country’s trains as “world-class” and described the development of the railway network as “remarkable”.

In yet another sign of China’s confidence in its railways, on September 21st bullet trains traveling on the flagship Beijing-Shanghai line will once again whizz down the tracks at speeds of 350kph. The new trains, which can reach speeds of 400kph, will be branded with the word Fuxing or “rejuvenation”.

High-Speed Rail to halve SHANGHAI-CHENGDU travel time



Authorities have started researching feasible plans on building a high-speed railway line from Shanghai to Chengdu in Sichuan province along the Yangtze River, one of the country's eight important east-to-west high-speed railway tracks.
China Railways Corp, the country's rail operator, and Anhui provincial government are likely to submit a plan to the central government on constructing the Hefei-Nanjing section of the line by the end of August.

The two have agreed to jointly build the section during the 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-2020), the official WeChat account of Chengdu Hi-Tech Industrial Development Zone reported on Wednesday.

Hubei provincial government has also drawn up plans on building the sections in the Central China's province of the east-to-west line to link cities to the coastal area.

Hubei plans to build a high-speed railway to link Macheng and Enshi as part of the Shanghai-Chengdu line. The Jingmen-Yichang section will be the same line linking Xiangyang, Jingmen and Yichang, which will start construction next year.

According to a medium- and long-term plan to expand railway network approved by the State Council, China's Cabinet, last year, China will build eight rail lines north to south, and eight lines east to west.

The high-speed railway line along the Yangtze River will connect 22 cities from Shanghai to Chengdu. The train will have a maximum speed of 350 km/h.

"The line starting from Shanghai, en route Nanjing, Hefei, Wuhan, Chongqing to Chengdu, will be built with the standard of 350 km/h, paralleling a passenger-dedicated line from Shanghai to Chengdu," a railway official said.

At the end of 2013, China completed a passenger-dedicated railway line from Shanghai to Chengdu, which takes 14 hours to complete the journey.

The high-speed railway will shorten the time from Chengdu to Wuhan to about three hours and from Chengdu to Shanghai to about seven hours.

China researches 600 km/h maglev train

http://www.ecns.cn/cns-wire/2017/09-04/272064.shtml

1 2017-09-04 16:17Ecns.cnEditor: Mo Hong'e ECNS App Download
(ECNS) -- China's high-speed railcar maker CRRC has started a special project to research high-speed rail vehicles that can reach speeds up to 600 kilometers per hour, according to Sun Bangcheng, deputy director of CRRC Industrial Research Institute.

The project, one of 18 national key research and development plans set by the Ministry of Science and Technology in 2016, is researching both high-speed passenger and freight trains, Sun said. The project will be completed by 2021 at a total investment of over 9 billion yuan ($580 million).

The project includes six types of trains -- three for freight, one high-speed passenger train and two types of maglev trains, according to Chinese-language Science and Technology Daily.

Freight trains with speeds of 250 km/h can transport seafood from Haikou in South China's Hainan Province to Beijing in north China in one day, according to a project officer at CRRC.

Research into maglev includes a train that can reach 600 km/h and another that travels at 200 km/h. Research is to prepare for "the post-high-speed rail age" in technology, said Sun.

The cost of a 600 km/h maglev train is almost the same as a 400 km/h version, according to recent research.

So far, Japanese-made maglev trains can travel 603 km/h at its maximum speed and German-designed maglevs can hit 505 km/h. The operating speed of maglev trains in Shanghai, which use German technology, is 430 km/h.

The first Chinese-made high-speed maglev train will roll off the operation line in 2018, the report said.

At a forum in Wuhan, capital of Hubei Province, Liu Shiquan, deputy general manager at CASIC, said China will research ultra-speed trains that can "fly" at 4,000 km/h.

China lays track for longest high-speed railway in high latitude area

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/20..._136589197.htm

China lays track for longest high-speed railway in high latitude area

HARBIN, Sept. 6 (Xinhua) -- Track laying of the 343 km Harbin-Jiamusi high-speed railway, China's longest high-speed railway in a high latitude area, has been finished, according to China Railway on Wednesday.

According to the company, the high-speed railway is planned to open in June 2018.

Running at 200 kilometers per hour, the railway will cut travel time between Harbin, capital of northeast Heilongjiang Province, and Jiamusi in the same province to 1.5 hours from 7 hours.

The railway has 14 stops, including Binxi, Fangzheng, Demoli and Yilan.

The line is expected to increase freight and passenger capacity between cities along the route and facilitate China's trade with Russia, as Jiamusi is near the border.

The high latitude railway runs through four tunnels and on 120 bridges, according to Yuan Zhengguo, director of the railway's engineering headquarters.

China has the world's longest high-speed rail network, about 22,000 kilometers at the end of last year, about 60 percent of the world's total.

Yeah, but not as far north and only slightly longer than Harbin-Qiqihar, and wouldn't seem as strategic as the Suifenhe–Manzhouli section. Though it will be halfway from Harbin to Khabarovsk.

China to build world's most challenging railway



CHENGDU — Breathtaking scenery and breathtaking dangers - both will face Chinese engineers as they embark on building the world's most difficult railway.

The Sichuan-Tibet Railway will be the second railway into Southwest China's Tibet autonomous region after the Qinghai-Tibet Railway. The line will go through the southeast of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, one of the world's most geologically active areas.

"The construction and operation of the Sichuan-Tibet Railway must overcome the biggest risks in the world," said You Yong, chief engineer of the Institute of Mountain Hazards and Environment of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), who is leading a scientific and technological support team to avoid disasters in the mountains.

China Railway Eryuan Engineering Group Co Ltd, which is designing the line, said it will run from Chengdu, capital of Southwest China's Sichuan province, through Ya'an and Kangding, and enter Tibet via Qamdo. It will then go through Nyingchi and Shannan prefectures before arriving at Lhasa, capital of Tibet. The total construction length will be about 1,700 kilometers and it will cost 250 billion yuan (about $36.88 billion).

Construction has begun on the two ends of the railway. The section between Chengdu and Ya'an is expected to open in June 2018. The feasibility study on the section between Ya'an and Kangding has been completed. The section between Lhasa and Nyingchi is under construction.

However, the section from Kangding to Nyingchi - the most difficult and the longest section - is still under design. Its construction is expected to begin in 2019 and could take about seven years, according to the China Railway Eryuan Engineering Group Co Ltd.

The Sichuan-Tibet Railway will be a major line in the western China rail network, connecting Tibet and more developed central and eastern regions. The design speed is from 160 km per hour to 200 km per hour. On completion, the travel time by train from Chengdu to Lhasa will be cut from 48 hours to about 13 hours.

You Yong, who has spent almost 30 years studying mountain hazards, said the line will traverse the eastern Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, which has sharp changes in terrain.

The active geological structure of the region causes strong earthquakes. The railway will go through earthquake zones such as the Longmen Mountain and Yarlung Zangbo River seismic belts, You said.

You said the Sichuan-Tibet Railway has four major environmental characteristics: significant terrain elevation differences, strong plate activities, frequent mountain disasters, and a sensitive ecological environment.

Mountain hazards were a major challenge. "The regions along the Sichuan-Tibet Railway have the most developed, most active, most diverse and most serious mountain hazards in China," You said.

"Constructing a railway in such a complicated geological environment will face a lot of scientific and technological difficulties. And the prevention and control of mountain hazards will be key to its success," said You.

The CAS began in 2014 to analyze the mountain hazard distribution patterns and risks, and experiment on disaster prevention along the route.

To date, scientists have identified the basic distribution and activities of mountain hazards, and set up a data bank for the hazards along the route.

Based on analysis of the risks, researchers offered their advice on the route selection and technologies to prevent and control the landslides and debris flows.

The government is also planning to build an expressway connecting Sichuan and Tibet. The scientific findings will also be applied in that construction.

Experts say the railway and expressway will push forward the opening up and economic development of Tibet.

Metropolitan HSR

When it comes to developing my own list of inaugural HSR sections in China (Sections placed in service in chronological order) i always doubt if I should put the new lines of short distance around large conurbations and that are not part of the major 8 + 8 axes. Finally I think it's always better to put everything I find and to take away what I believe is not HS.

New sections with high-speed trains and speeds of 200/250 km/h only occur in China, since the rest are used lines and long-distance trains. Except in Spain, where there are three series of trains (104 114 and 121) for 250 km/h and specialized in that type of traffic up to 300 km away under the trade name Avant; but long-distance lines are used, except in the case of Toledo, which has a short branch of 21 km from the LAV Madrid-Seville. Also Avant squares are marketed in Alvia and Ave trains.

These are the lines I have found; I appreciate corrections, additions and more information.

Notes: I put the current maps to locate the stations. Color red for 300/350 km/h, yellow for 200/250.

Beijing: Jing-Jin-Ji plan
China’s National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) gave the go-ahead for a Yuan 247bn ($US 36bn) project to improve 1,104 km rail links between Beijing and surrounding towns and cities due to be completed by 2020.
Quote:
The project encompasses nine lines:

Km Line
160 Capital Airport-Daxing New Airport via Tongzhou, Yizhuang and Langfang (09/2019) (NE → E→ SE → S)
078 Beijing-Bazhou (09/2019) (→ S)
149 Beijing-Tangshan (→ E)
098 Beijing-Tianjin Binhai New Area (→ SE)
067 Chongli Railway (→ NW)
065 Lanfang-Zhuozhou (SE → SW)
088 Ring Line Langfang-Pinggu section (NE → SE)
106 Gu’an-Baoding (S → SW)
293 Beijing-Shijiazhuang (→ S)


The nine lines form the first phase of an eventual 3,453 km network serving a conurbation of around 130 million inhabitants.
There is also the Tianjin-Yujiapu line (45 km) inaugurated on 09/20/2015 although it is for 350 km/h.


Guangzhou: Pearl River Delta Metropolitan Region Intercity Railway System
93 07/01/2011 Guangzhou South- Zhuhai North (→ S)
71 07/01/2011 Xiaolan-Xinhui (→ SW)
23 31/12/2012 Zhuhai North-Zhuhai (→ S)
25 30/12/2015 Shenzhen North-Futian
97 30/03/2016 Dongguan-Huizhou (E → E)
82 30/03/2016 Foshan West (W of Guangzhou)-Zhaoqing (→ W)



Wuhan:
92 28/12/2013 Wuhan-Xianning South (→ S)
85 18/06/2014 Wuhan-Huangshi (→ SE)
65 18/06/2014 Wuhan-Huanggang East (→ E)
62 01/12/2016 Hankou-Xiaogan (→ NW)



Changsha
98 26/12/2016 Changsha-Zhuzhou/Xiangtan (→ SE / SW)



Zhengzhou
50 17/12/2014 Zhengzhou East-Songchenglu (Kaifeng) (→ E)
78 26/06/2015 Nanyangzhai-Jiaozuo (→ NW)
30 31/12/2015 Zhengzhou East-Zhengzhou Xingzheng Airport (→ S)
There are 14 lines operating, under construction or planned around Zhengzhou.



Also interesting are these areas with many lines:

Chengdú-Lichuan



Shanghai
