China inks 5.5 bln USD infrastructure construction contracts in Africa

English.news.cn 2015-04-27 23:33:18

BEIJING, April 27 (Xinhua) -- Two big construction orders in Africa totalling nearly 5.5 billion U.S. dollars have been signed by China' largest railway constructor, China Railway Construction Corp. (CRCC).

The contracts, signed by CRCC China-Africa Construction LTD., a wholly-owned subsidiary of CRCC, include a 3.506 billion dollars contract for an inter-city railway project in Nigeria and a 1.93 billion dollar residential construction project in Zimbabwe.

The Nigerian project further cements the company's leading role in the Nigerian construction industry, and is also a milestone in the "going global" of Chinese railway, said Meng Fengchao, board chairman of CRCC.

CRCC China-Africa Construction LTD. is now the largest rail transit contractor in Africa.
Do you guys know the line mentioned here?

Wow Maybe this is naive, but... Has any other country in the world something that massive? (I can`t find the word to describe this kind of train infraestructure, in spanish we call it "parrilla", I guess)

The English term is railyard, classification yard, switching yard, or just yard.

And yes, the US has quite a few this size or bigger, as do other nations:

Here's the Netherlands:

And here's Canada:

And this is Conway Yard in Pennsylvania, second-largest in the world (not all shown):

USA has the largest one, China makes up by quantities, across the country there are at least 15 super large marshalling/classification yards which are capable of sorting over 7000 goods wagons each day.

Zhengzhou North, not sure if it's still the largest in China.

How does China keep such a high average speed for its z class trains of 60mph, since it's railway also handles a lot of freight rail, which would slow down regular passenger rail, how do theu fix the schedules.
