China's high-speed rail has developed for only a decade, later than in many countries, but
Third World Rail Cooperation, held on 20 Novembe
At the beginning of this year, China Railway Corporation announced the railway construction achievements up to 2018, pointing out that China's total railway mileage is 131000 kilometers and high-speed railway is 29000 kilometers. At this meeting, He Huawu, vice president of the Chinese Academy of engineering, also mentioned that this year's railway will increase 8500 kilometers, including 4000 kilometers of high-speed railway, so it is not surprising that this year's high-speed railway mileage is more than 30000 kilometers.
At present, China's railway mileage ranks the second in the world, second only to 150000 km in the United States, and 400000 km in the peak period of the latter.
But most of the American Railways are low-speed, and there is no large-scale high-speed rail. China's 30000 km high-speed rail mileage accounts for two-thirds of the world's total. In other words, in terms of high-speed rail, China vs all other countries are also 2:1.
China's railway construction will not stop in the futureBy 2025, China's railway network will reach about 175000 kilometers, including 38000 kilometers of high-speed rail; by 2030, the scale of China's railway network will reach about 200000 kilometers, including 45000 kilometers of high-speed rail, which will basically realize internal and external connectivity, smooth inter regional multi-channel, provincial capital high-speed rail, rapid access to cities and basic coverage of counties.
