China's conventional high-speed railway network is made up of four components:
(1) upgraded pre-existing rail lines that can accommodate high-speed trains,
(2) a national grid of mostly passenger dedicated HSR lines (PDLs),

(4) "intercity" HSR lines. Newly built high speed linesthat not be included in PDL lines and Western China lines

I've read they're planning a new monster bridge across the Hangzhou Bay, it'll be a part of the Nantong-Ningbo HSR line and will span around 30km, becoming the world's longest railway bridge ever built over a body of water. Likely to be built within the 2011-2015 plan. Please post any info you find about it.

This seems like such a waste. They should have just designed the Hangzhou Bay bridge with the provision for a rail line in the first place - it would have cost a LOT less money than building an entirely new second bridge.

Actually it would cost much more if they chose to build one road-rail bridge instead of two separate bridges. A long distance across sea road-rail bridge like this would require massive amount of money which they didn't have at that time, and many technical issues to solve (some of them were not solvable back then), that is why this concept was abandoned in the first place. It's like asking why they don't build a skyscraper of 1km instead of building two separate 500m skyscrapers.

Didn't the other bridge just open recently? We had a technology leap in that span of time?
