Thanks for the news! Any doubts:

Huaibei is in the province of Anhui, but I do not find Xiaoxianbei (or Xiao Xian Bei) 27.1 km away. I think it really is Xiaoxian North, next to Xuzhou.


Despite this news https://www.ecns.cn/cns-wire/2017/12-28/286248.shtml the best time Shijiazhuang-Jinan I have found is not 1:20 but 2:09
The distance between cities is not clear, or it can be the distance of the new line: 298/319/323 km ????

Taijuan-Chongqing understand that they talk about a new train service. Taiyuan-Xi'an (599 km) was inaugurated on 07/01/2014.
Has Xi'an-Chongqing been modernized (approximately 713 km)?

I understand that Chongqing-Guiyang and Guangyuan-Minxian-Lanzhou are mixed lines for freight and passengers and 200 km / h, so they should not appear here, right?

Any news about?:
Datong-Taiyuan
Fuzhou-Zhanzhou
Jiujiang-Jingdezhen-Quzhou
Songchenglu-Kaifeng (Zhengzhou-Kaifeng)

Thanks in advance!

Year 2017

These are the inaugurations of passengers dedicated lines to that I know during 2017:


The indication "no UIC" is because that agency does not consider those lines. According to my accounts there is a total of 27,354 km of lines dedicated to passengers, where I include some Metropolitan (Metro) for 200 /250 km/h and dedicated to passengers. According to the UIC they reach 25,385 km.
In an informative way, I detail other lines not included in my list ("otras líneas no incluidas") due to having freight traffic or only CRH trains without modifications in the line.

This is the progression over the years:


For the first time there were no new lines for 300 km/h or more.

Any correction is appreciated.

China's high-speed rail tracks to hit 38,000 km by 2025
Xinhua Excerpt

BEIJING -- China's high-speed rail tracks will hit 38,000 km by 2025, higher than 25,000 km registered by the end of 2017, the railway operator said.

The country's operating high-speed rail tracks accounted for 66.3 percent of the world's total by the end of 2017, said Lu Dongfu, general manager of China Railway Corporation.

The operator is aiming to build 4,000 km of new rail lines this year, 3,500 km of which will be high-speed rail tracks.

China's railway network will hit 175,000 km in length by 2025, compared with 127,000 km of operating tracks by the end of last year.

In 2017, a total of 3.04 billion passenger trips were made on railways, up 9.6 percent year on year. More than 56 percent of those trips were made on high-speed railways.

About 70 percent of rail tickets were sold online, while more than 70 percent of freight business were transacted online.

The maximum speed of China's bullet trains rises to 350 kilometers per hour, when Fuxing (Rejuvenation) bullet trains started operation between Beijing and Shanghai on September 21, 2017.

The Fuxing trains are a substantial upgrade on the previous bullet trains known as Hexie (Harmony). Entirely designed and manufactured in China, the Fuxing is more spacious and energy-efficient, with a longer service life and better reliability.

It's a conventional full profile drill&blast method of excavation with quite extensive mechanisation and it is shown in first part of the video. The rest shows making tunnel wall reinforcements and protection with reinforced concrete.

China approves railway project linking Nanchang, Huangshan

http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/201..._136871953.htm

BEIJING, Jan. 4 (Xinhua) -- China's top economic planner has approved a railway project linking Nanchang in eastern China's Jiangxi Province and Huangshan in Anhui Province, with a total investment of 48.57 billion yuan (7.47 billion U.S. dollars).

Spanning 286 kilometers, the project will have nine stops, with a maximum speed at 350 kilometers per hour, according to the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC).

The four-year project is expected to facilitate development along the Yangtze river economic belt, the NDRC said.

China spent 801 billion yuan on railway projects and put 3,038 km of new tracks into operation in 2017, meeting its annual targets of 800 billion yuan of investment and 2,100 km of new lines, according to the China Railway Corporation.

By the end of 2017, total mileage of China's railways in operation reached 127,000 km. Among the total, high-speed railways rose to 25,000 km from 22,000 km at the end of 2016.

The growth of railway construction projects came at a time when the country is enduring continuous deceleration in growth of fixed-asset investment.

In the first 11 months of 2017, fixed-asset investment grew 7.2 percent year on year, down from 8.3 percent during the same period in 2016.
