You can get a new Audi Q3 for less than RMB 300,000 now.

As I mentioned driver 1 called for help and driver 2 showed up, the location of the crash was not on a normal road, the second driver intentionally crush two trees and the fencing in order to get to driver 1.

I didn't see many Q3 but lots and lots of Q7s in SZ/GZ and Shanghai. Which is why I would assume it was a Q7 Although now since I checked it online it seems that it starts at 800K RMB. That's crazy expensive. I suppose they're importing those cars from Germany.

That's right, Q7 is imported while Q3 and Q5 are assembled domestically, that's why such a huge difference in prices. But those vehicles are not really off roaders so that's why only idiots will attempt to drive onto a railroad embankment.

Guangzhou - Zhuhai Railway is finally openned

From Guangzhou Daily:

Quote:
广珠铁路开通 改写珠江口西岸无货运铁路历史

新闻摘要: 广珠铁路的开通将有效破解广州至佛山、江门、珠海等珠三角西岸城市的物流瓶颈,与公路运输相比采用铁路运输可降低20%物流成本,沿途外贸企业或生产加工企业将从中获益。

途经广州佛山江门珠海四市 改变珠江口西岸无货运铁路历史

本报珠海讯 (记者陈治家)昨日11时28分,一辆满载着3000吨煤的货运列车从珠海高栏港驶出,标志着广珠铁路正式投入使用。全国人大华侨委员会副主任委员、广东省原省长黄华华,省委常委、珠海市委书记李嘉,省人大常委会党组副书记雷于蓝,省人大常委会副主任邓维龙,老领导梁广大以及广铁集团领导现场见证了首列货运专列的发车。



广珠铁路是国铁I级电气化铁路,设计时速120公里/小时,年运量6000万吨。线路自国家铁路大动脉京广线、华南最大的编组站江村编组站南端双线引出,终于高栏港站,全长189.376km,途经广州、佛山、江门、珠海四市,设大田、官窑、丹灶、鹤山、江门南、古井、斗门、珠海西、高栏港等9个车站,江村编组站至江门南站(含)双线,江门南站至高栏港站单线。

广珠铁路是全国为数不多的直接建到港区的货运铁路,目的是“下火车装轮船、下轮船装火车”,实现以港兴市,带动珠海以及沿线城市大发展的目标。珠海西站则是广珠铁路全线规模最大的一个站点。

广珠铁路投入运行后,将承担广州铁路枢纽西部通道的功能,改变珠江口西岸无货运铁路的状况,使珠江三角洲西翼地区能够更充分地发挥背靠内陆广大腹地、面对港澳的地缘优势,以广珠铁路为枢纽,加强与澳门的全方位合作,实现粤澳两地共同发展、共同繁荣。

广东省物价局已批准对广珠铁路实行试行运价,整车货物不分类别每吨公里0.25元;集装箱货物20英尺箱4.8元/箱公里,40英尺箱9.6元/箱公里,企业自备空箱按重箱费率的40%计算;允许广珠铁路有限责任公司根据市场变化情况,在上述基准运价基础上适度浮动。

中山大学港澳珠江三角洲研究中心袁持平教授认为,广珠铁路承担着沿线城市至全国各地大宗货物运输的重任,是珠三角西翼的主要运输通道之一,通车后将使珠三角西翼的企业货畅其流,完善区域综合交通体系,带动珠江三角洲西翼经济快速、平衡地发展,推动整个广东省乃至泛珠三角区域的经济发展。

广珠铁路百年梦圆

1904年11月,清政府与葡萄牙在上海签订合作修建“中葡广澳铁路合同”,从广州修铁路经珠海进入澳门,后因种种原因没有付诸实施

1993年,国务院批准广珠铁路立项

1997年,广珠铁路开工

1999年,因资金缺乏被迫停工

2007年9月25日,国家发改委批复同意广珠铁路复工;次日,建设动员大会召开

2012年12月29日,广珠铁路正式建成通车

物流成本可降20%

珠海一家物流公司负责人说,广珠铁路的开通将有效破解广州至佛山、江门、珠海等珠三角西岸城市的物流瓶颈,与公路运输相比采用铁路运输可降低20%物流成本,沿途外贸企业或生产加工企业将从中获益。

实现海铁大联运

珠海港鑫和码头是珠三角地区最大的干散货码头,广珠铁路通车后,新建铁路高栏港疏港铁路专用线将从高栏港站联通到码头,无缝连接的海铁联运大通道将打开。

将连通4条大动脉

未来还将有4条交通大动脉衔接广珠铁路:已开工的贵广高铁、南广高铁将在三水附近与广珠铁路接轨;准备开工的南沙港铁路将与广珠铁路在鹤山接轨;计划上马的沿海铁路将与广珠铁路在江门接轨。

No. This is a conventional line railway. Not the high-speed dedicated line that ends in Zhuhai North.

Things are going so fast in China it's hard to keep up. I had no idea they were also building a conventional line between Guangzhou and Zhuhai. I guess this is mostly for freight? I falsely thought China was done with building conventional railway lines.

Far from it, if you see a line that has a design speed of 200km/h chances are it's a conventional railway, case in point the Chongqing-Lichuan Railway or the 500km Shenzhen-Xiamen Railway currently under construction.

This particular line is to provide the first intermodal sea/rail freight connection in Guangdong. Conventional railway lines aren't as sexy as 350km/h high speed lines, but are just as important.

It's an old project. They started to build this line in 1997 but stopped in 1999, and then again re-start the construction in 2007.

A train everyday to Pyongyang? It seems like a lot of people are moving across the border...is it easy for Chinese and North Koreans to traverse the border? I always thought it was hard to get into North Korea and even harder for North Koreans to get out.

For Chinese citizen get into North Korea is as easy as booking a trip with a local travel agency, and they will handle all the paperwork. For North Koreans to get out, that's entirely another matter.

I think even for many people living in the West, it's just a matter of getting the visa and paying the fee for a tour to get in. There probably is a lot of business traffic between the two sides anyway.

The information about train tickets from Beijing, capital of China, to Zhengzhou, capital of central China's Henan Province, on Jan. 26, 2013 is shown on the online railway ticket booking website of the Ministry of Railways, Jan. 7, 2013. The tickets for the upcoming Spring Festival rush period can be purchased via online and phone-call booking systems since Jan. 7. The 40-day 2013 Spring Festival travel rush will start on Jan. 26. The Spring Festival for family reunions begins from the first day of the first month of the traditional Chinese lunar calendar, or Feb. 10, 2013. (Xinhua/Li Bo)

it's designed to reduce redundency and bureaucracy, centralize the management of rail, aviation and road/waterway transport. Especially with current expansion of expressways, airports and HSR it will improve coordination and efficiency of logistics, people transportation and project planning and constructions.
