Tibet railway extension under construction
Quote:
China on Sunday began construction on an extension to the world's highest rail link, the Qinghai-Tibet Railway. The construction will connect the Tibetan capital of Lhasa to Xigaze, Tibet's second largest city.

The extension, in the southwestern part of the autonomous region, will create a 253-km railway line. The work will take four years, with a budget of 13.3 billion yuan ($1.98 billion), Zhang Ping, head of the National Reform and Development Commission, said on Sunday in Lhasa.

The extension from Lhasa to Xigaze is the first extension of the Qinghai-Tibet Railway, which opened in July 2006.

The new section will pass through five counties and over the 90-km long Yarlung Zangbo Grand Canyon, to reach Xigaze, a city with a history of more than 600 years and the traditional seat of the Panchen Lamas.

"It will play a vital role in boosting tourism in the southwestern part of Tibet and promoting the rational use of resources along the line," Liu Zhijun, minister of railways, said at the conference.

The extended rail line will be a single line with a speed of 120 km per hour. Nearly half of the line, or 115 km, will be laid in tunnels or on bridges.

"Laying rail tracks in tunnels in the mountains can avoid passing through the fragile natural reserves in Tibet," Wang Mengshu, a railway tunnel expert and member of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, told China Daily on Sunday.

A news release from the Ministry of Railways said that the extension line avoids four natural reserves in the area.

In addition, using tunnels can help reduce damage to the railway by earthquakes, since Tibet is prone to earthquakes, Wang said.

"But the tunnels will add to the difficulty of construction, as it will be impossible to lay the tracks as fast as in the previous construction of the Qinghai-Tibet Railway, which was built on top of permafrost," he said.

The Qinghai-Tibet Railway is the world's highest railway. Some 960 km of its tracks are located 4,000 meters above sea level. About 550 km of the tracks run on frozen earth, the longest of any of the world's plateau railways.

The Qinghai-Tibet Railway's first section from Xining, capital of Qinghai province, to Golmud of Qinghai was completed and opened to traffic in 1984. Its second section from Golmud to Lhasa started construction in 2001 and opened to traffic in 2006.

A spokesman with the Ministry of Railways said that the future railway network in Tibet will have a "Y" shape, with two extensions planned.

In addition to the extension from Lhasa to Xigaze, the other is from Lhasa to Nyingchi in the southeastern part of Tibet. Previous media reports said construction will begin in 2013 at the earliest.

Xigaze city is the administrative center of the Tibetan prefecture of the same name, a 182,000-sq-km area that neighbors India, Nepal and Bhutan. It is also famous for Qomolangma (known as Mount Everest in the West), which rises up from it.

I was mistaken. It is said that Guangzhou South has 500,000 m^2, but I checked out the source, and that number is for the whole station area including parking lots. The station building at Xi'an North alone has a floor area of 378,425 sq.m, very impressive. Thanks for the data, I think that settles the debate.

Keep the updates coming, guys. So many railways, bridges and highways u/c in China, and so few updates. Chinese infrastructures are very unnoticed in SSC.

I guess this is because there are quite a few large Chinese-language forums where most of the info is being put. Perhaps simply there aren't many people who bother posting stuff here on SSC (thanks to those who still do!).

To be honest, the HSR expansion in China is more exciting and interesting to me than any of the skyscraper projects. It's a modern project of a scale the world hasn't seen yet.

Brilliant, yes more please.
China has become the World leader in Rail Technology.
Even Australia, which has traditionaly purchased U.S. stock is buying Chinese Locomotives and Wagons.

I find myself checking this thread several times a day, looking for the latest amazing news of rail transport from China. The most amazing thing to me about this and the metro development in Chinese cities is their speed. Shanghai build the longest metro system in the world in just 15 years. London and New York City's have over a century of expansion in them. How big will Shanghai's be in a century?

To those in America who say it's too late to have a metro system, roads, cars, and buses have already won a monopoly on transportation, I say look at China. Think China in the 1990s and 2000s wasn't/isn't addicted to cars? How many freakin' ring roads does Beijing have? Metros and rail transport can be smart solutions for North American cities as well as Chinese. If American companies can't do it, there are plenty of Chinese, Hong Kong, and Singaporean companies able and eager to build HSRs and metros for us.

Has anyone got some elaborate info on what the train speeds are in China's regular (i.e. non CRH) passenger routes? I was trying to find it online but all I get is news articles about CRH.

For example, what trains and at what speeds are currently running on the Beijing - Shanghai and other important "regular" routes? Also, is it possible that CRH trainsets can be used on non-CRH tracks i.e. on the existing old tracks?

China starts work on Tibet railway line to link Shigatse
Quote:
Dharamsala, September 27: China on Sunday started work on a railway line that will connect Tibet's second largest city, Shigatse, to the capital, Lhasa. The 253 kilometre railway line will promote “tourism and rational use of natural resources” in the occupied country, Liu Zhijun, the Minister of Railways, said.

China will invest $1.98 billion (13.3 billion yuan) to create the Shigatse-Lhasa railway line, which will be the first extension of the “Qinghai-Tibet” railway that opened in 2006.

The Qinghai-Tibet railway line is reported to have accelerated a number of mining projects, including the massive Yulong copper mine, under development by Western Mining and Zijin Mining Group Co Ltd, among others.

Chinese geologists have found deposits of copper, iron, lead and zinc ore along the Qinghai-Tibet Railroad route, Chinese state media confirmed in 2007.

Beijing is also planning to double its railway links in Tibet, which it refers to as its “Western Treasure House," from 2013, according to Chinese media reports.

Activists and Tibet advocacy groups say the Tibet railway line will encourage further influx of Han Chinese migrants into Tibet, marginalising the Tibetans in their own country. Tibet activists say China’s primary goal in building the railways is to strengthen its political clout over Tibet and boost efforts to drain Tibet's natural resources.

“The railway line between Lhasa and Shhigatse will further agrravate the tension between India and China where both the Asian giants have hugely militarized their sides of 4200 Km Himalayan border,” said Tenzin Tsundue, a Tibetan independence activist.

The new section of the railway to link Shigatse, expected to complete and be open to traffic after 4 years, is designed with a capacity to transport 8.3 million tonnes of freight annually. Earlier this month, China’s state Council and the National Development and Reform Commission approved the project for the extension of the Qinghai-Tibet railway from Lhasa to Shigatse.

26 minutes ago, a CRH 380A train during trial operation (not test run) on Shanghai-Hangzhou HSR reached 416.6 km/h.

It's all over the news now.

source: http://news.sina.com.cn/c/2010-09-28/113621186681.shtml

The trial operation seems to be a success despite the drizzle.

Very nice coachwork. I find the Honda City and visit Japan headrest ads a bit ironic on a couple of levels
