Shanghai denies suspension of Shanghai-Hangzhou maglev project



Jiao Yang, a Shanghai municipal government news spokesperson, announced that media claims regarding the suspension of the Shanghai-Hangzhou Maglev project are false, as reported by CCTV.

He stated that "from what we have been told by relevant departments, nobody has received any notice on the issue of the suspension of the Shanghai-Hangzhou Maglev project."

Yang also noted that the Maglev project was authorized by the State Council last year. This railway line, with a total length of 175 kilometers, a speed of 450 kilometers per hour, and a cost of approximately 35 billion yuan, will be built by 2010, in time to reduce traffic tensions during the 2010 Shanghai World Expo.

In response to concerns about how the electromagnetic radiation will affect residents who live along the railway line, Yang said that since the Shanghai Maglev project is still in its early stages, the government will listen to opinions from all sides.

Thank you
it's from the People's Daily so you needn't bother varifying credibility, it's creditable.

This late breaking news can only indicate that Transrapid have just agreed to another term that China has put forward in their on going discussion.

As mentioned before, these news are nothing more than political play (which the infamous picture that I posted was just apart of it) and anyone who actually understands Chinese culture would not take them seriously. There are just very realistic threats used as a barginning point; they are very rude in the prospective of fairness, but they are also extremely effective

Siemen's ignored one of these threats during the 2004 CRH bid, and was eliminated from the process while the other three manufactures Alstom, Kawasaki and Bombardier all secured orders. Because of this the entire Siemens' staff team in China was fired and CEO in Germany was replaced. Siemens had to end up coming back the next year with a new bid that is even more favourable to the Chinese than it was demanded during the first bid.

Let's hope Transrapid doesn't make the same mistake.

Let's hope Transrapid doesn't

Which do you think happened?
Did Transrapid cave in or did the plan back fired?

whatever I or anyone say or think is just speculation. I prefer not to speculate and I would apperciate it if nobody else did.

let's just use these things as references and not debate over them, nothing would be learned this way; it'll just misinform people.

Well transrapid is the seller, China is the buyer, seller needs to satisfy the needs of the buyers, so the buyer can feel compelled to buy the products. I do not agree with UD2, it is not threats, it is basically just an agreement between buyer and seller, if the seller is not happy with the conditions then the buyer can just buy from someone else. In the end of the day, we need to remember that it is the buyer that pay the money and help the seller make profits.

I hope this train is just a prototype for other future HS rail. The design is OK nothing special. They need to design trains that have a nicer body. Besides the head the other carriages just looks like 70's design. . Boxy. Why can't they create curvy bodies? Like the Pendolino, ICE, or even the JR500 series.

I'm pretty sure it's still missing the tip of it's nose, they probably haven't put it on due to practical reasons. Now they can tow the train away when necessary without having to uncover the coupler.

But I have to agree that the design doesn't look as slick as the European trainss

Their design knowledge of these trains started 10yrs ago. So they have a lot of time to start somewhere. Its time to improve upon the design well now that they have access to Pendolino,ICE and Shinkansen they should somewhat have knowledge of what elegant trains are.

This train was designed almost 10 years ago and has been under testing and mothball for almost 5 years.

What's important right now is proformance, and not design. They want to make sure that it can run normally without hiccaps first.

it's also important to remember that the Chinese have never ever been very good a creative design. It's he education system that stresses religiously on technicalities and completely negelects creativity.

I am so surprised, that not one single more pic of that tongji maglev appeared.

Seems like they wanted only that single pic to appear, but not one more.

it would be nice to get at least one from the front, or a perspective view of that thing, or maybe one without the truck...

Never is a bit streched. What about the the architecture of the Tang and the furniture and garden design of the Ming?
