It is a shame that they didn't cover railway tracks and platforms. This hub is built mainly because it was chosen to house the main HSR station in Shanghai.

starting at 04:55, it covers the HSR station, which it calls the 'main area' of the traffic hub. But most of the time the doc talks about other aspects of the hub. I think it is because when they shot it, railway tracks were still being constructed. The doc was probably finished after the new terminal was into operation but before the opening of HSR station and platforms.

I'll probably be unpopular for this, but although the project is a big one it really does fit with the Chinese HSR discussion especially since it is within one country. We're trying to consolidate threads and judging from examples in other forums (Subways and Urban Transport with the Japan Urban Compelation for example) long threads with lots of information can still work very well.

China's Vice Premier stresses safety of high-speed railway

BEIJING, Jan. 4 (Xinhua) -- China's Vice Premier Zhang Dejiang Tuesday urged the nation's railway departments to step up efforts to promote safe railway transport and build quality railway projects to better serve social-economic development.

Further, priority should be placed on ensuring the safety of the country's high-speed railway in the next five years, Zhang told a national railway conference.

Zhang urged railway departments to accelerate construction of the major projects while strengthening quality management and control.

He also ordered authorities to make more efforts to improve technological innovation, while sharpen the international competitiveness of railway technologies and products.

In 2010, 1.68 billion passenger journeys were conducted through the nation's railways, up 9.9 percent year on year, according to data from the Ministry of Railways.

The total length of the country's railways had reached 91,000 km by 2010, and the railways would reach 120,000 km in five years, according to Chinese Railways Minister Liu Zhijun.

A pretty cool idea. A good low-cost option for migrant workers and students, also for other people in case of flight-cancelling etc.

Yes - travel time is about 40 minutes and it will eventually be extended to the Macau border (it goes to Zhuhai North now).

You can probably pick them all out on the Wikipedia listing here. It looks pretty comprehensive

Finally, capsule hotels are gaining traction outside Japan!

Thank you for the video. If you have anymore to share, go right ahead and post them. Chinese projects are not reported on in this country, or so it seems.

I don't have cable TV (just internet), have not seen a torrent of that series, and don't speak any Chinese...

High speed rail wasn't really talked about on the linked video, although once they get the Maglev moving along, that could be a heck of a setup.
