The rush is to get people home for the Chinese New Year celebration. It's an annual massive migration madness.

....urbanisation is well underway (if you see area and population figures of just 1 decade go) and at a very fast pace, and one shouldn't automatically assume that'll continue forever.
Er dude, if there's one thing you don't need to do with the Chinese its assuming. THE WHOLE THING HAS BEEN PLANNED!!!!!!!!!

This makes all of your previous points irrelevant.

Yes special effort was made with St Pancras, just as it is in Guangzhou, the difference being it is a different effort and happens to be its one you don't agree with but in all likelihood will work out fine.

To compare apples with apples one only needs to look at Beijing, which is one of the few Chinese cities with fairly good railway infrastructure. It's not hard to see it does have a London-style ring of terminals none of which too far from the centre.

At the end of the day a railway station here and a railway station there are both railway stations, which I'm sure you'll agree.
How about forgetting about the 19th century and being objective for a moment. What is so bad about the odd out of town station if extra effort is made to mitigate the circumstances it find itself in?

The Midland Railway didn't have the ability to build a few underground railways to its new terminus if they decided to build it further from the centre, as well as a few motorways, a new urban district and whatever else.

Quote:
Don't get me wrong, having the railway built is infinitely better than not having it at all.
If thats what you think then make it known.

As for the practicality argument, a long term view is surely needed?
You are the only person who seems to think there isn't one.

China - Taiwan High-Speed Rail Tunnel

Taiwan unenthusiastic about cross-strait undersea tunnel plan
12 March 2010

Taipei, March 12 (CNA) The Mainland Affairs Council (MAC), Taiwan's top China policy coordinating body, responded coolly Friday to a Chinese engineer's proposal that a tunnel be built under the Taiwan Strait as part of a high-speed railway line linking Taipei and Beijing.

An MAC official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, described it as a unilateral declaration by China and said Taiwan has never had such a plan.

"Besides, it is improper now for the two sides to talk about such a huge project, given the current political situation across the Taiwan Strait," the official said.

Wang Mengshu, a member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering and deputy chief of the China Railway Tunnel Group (CTG), told the China News Service recently that CTG executives will meet with officials from Taiwan in May to discuss the high-speed rail tunnel project.

"If everything goes smoothly, the undersea tunnel could be built in 10 years," Wang said.

He added that Beijing has also completed plans to build three long high-speed rail lines that would cut across Central Asia, Russia and Southeast Asia.

Negotiations have been underway for the development of these three mammoth projects, which are expected to be completed by 2030 at the earliest, he added.

China has also proposed building a tunnel for vehicle traffic under the Taiwan Strait as part of a freeway connecting Beijing and Taipei.

兰新铁路第二双线张掖段建设拉开大幕

  本报讯(记者 武开义)2月25日,全市兰新铁路第二双线征地拆迁动员大会召开。随后,涉及征地拆迁的甘州、民乐、临泽、高台、山丹马场四县一区一场的16个乡镇、57个村的干部群众迅速行动起来,全面展开征拆工作。这标志着兰新铁路第二双线张掖段建设拉开大幕,也标志着这一“国字号”重点工程全线开工。

  据具体负责承建甘、青境内路段的甘青公司总经理黄殿辉介绍,兰新铁路第二双线从兰州铁路枢纽兰州西站引出,经兰州市、临夏州进入青海省,经青海省西宁市后折向北穿越祁连山脉进入张掖、酒泉、嘉峪关,西行至新疆乌鲁木齐市止。线路全长1775.7公里,项目概算投资总额1435亿元,沿途共设31个车站,建设期限5年。该线甘肃境内线路总长798.993公里,投资616.8亿元,在张掖境内全长约267公里,总投资234亿元,新建山丹马场、民乐、张掖南、临泽南、高台南5个车站。

  新建的兰新铁路第二双线是以客运为主的干线铁路,这条铁路建成后,对提升西部大开发和甘肃经济社会可持续发展、加强国际交流、增进民族团结、巩固西部边防具有十分重要的意义。该项目建成后,将明显改善我市的交通运输环境,进一步拓宽运输通道,破解运力瓶颈,形成综合交通运输体系,将更加凸显我市的区位优势,进一步扩大对外开放空间,实现与周边地区的资源优势互补,培育壮大特色主导产业,为加快建设新能源、钨钼冶金新材料、新型煤化工、特色农产品加工基地,打造河西走廊立体交通枢纽,构筑西北高原生态安全屏障增添新的动力,在全省新一轮区域经济发展、打造西翼增长极中发挥更大的作用。这条铁路建成后,张掖至北京只需8小时,至兰州只需2小时,至乌鲁木齐在6小时内,“夕发朝至”将成为现实。同时,沿线客货运输能力将大幅提高,“一车难求” 、“一票难求”在张掖将成为历史。

  据初步测算,兰新铁路第二双线张掖段占工程甘肃段里程的33%;征地拆迁涉及四县一区一场、16个乡镇、57个村,征地面积约1.3万多亩,需要拆迁各类建筑物约8.2万平方米。

  按照市政府分解下达的工作任务,张掖站以东3月份完成先期用地征用,4月份完成全部用地征用,张掖以西4月份完成先期用地征用,5月份完成全部用地征用。

本站祁连山讯 (记者 许岗)3月13日上午,兰新铁路甘青公司副总经理马宝成对祁连山隧道出口、斜井和施工便道建设等进行了实地检查。他欣慰地说:“最近,二十局集团六公司的工程进展很快,工作推进力度很大。”
全长9.515公里的祁连山隧道,横跨甘肃、青海两省,最高海拔4345米,被誉为兰新铁路第二双线“天字号工程”,是全线建设的重中之重。六公司承建的隧道出口、斜井等项目,其最大埋深823米,地质地形异常复杂,断层、裂隙密布,年平均气温1.8℃、最低气温-31.5℃,高寒缺氧,线路经过地段为无人区,车辆无法通行,交通极其困难。
为加快施工进度,确保首战必胜,六公司一方面抽调精兵强将上场组建项目部和作业队,一方面从提高认识入手,快速行动。先后采取公司法人蹲点,专家组进驻现场,加大设备、人力资源投入,优化方案等措施,使大临设施建设迅速加快,现场工作全面快速推进。
为确保节点目标和阶段目标提前完成,公司总工程师武群虎、副总工程师孟收娃、李英和公司部分部室人员驻扎现场,研究对策,分头推进,严抓落实。项目部管理人员、技术人员住进工地,将工程计划目标细化到周到日,并定人、定时、定指标。全体参加员工怀着“用心做事,以诚待人”、“确保履约能力,与您共同发展”等企业理念,顶着零下20多度的严寒昼夜忘我奋战,现场面貌与日刷新,各项目标如期实现。
据悉,六公司担负的7标祁连山隧道出口、斜井工程所涉及的大临设施建设任务将于3月底前全面完成。
Rough translation: In the moring of March 13, Ma Baocheng, the vice general manager of Lanxin railway Gansu-Qinghai company, field studied the Qilianshan Tunnel. Qilianshan Tunnel is 9515 meters long, cross Gansu and Qinghai provinces, maximum elevation at 4345 meters above sea level, is the "Heaven Project" of the railway line. The region is cold and hypoxia, with all year average temperature of the region is 1.8℃, and could be as low as -31.5℃ in winter. This region is uninhabited and inaccessible by vehicles.
