China has achieved an impressive “Chinese speed” in its development of the high speed rail after years of efforts, which can be verified by Fuxing, the latest model of the country’s bullet train.
So far, China has basically built the world’s largest network of high-speed rail with a “four vertical and four horizontal” structure. It is currently working to expand it to “eight vertical and eight horizontal” for a full coverage of the country’s central and western regions.
High-speed rail is a prioritized choice of many Chinese when it comes to medium- and short-distance travels. Connected with subways and light rails, high-speed rail services in many Chinese cities offer the same convenience as the subway does.
In addition, China’s bullet trains, with reliable advanced technology, cost-effective performance and rich operation experiences, are going global step by step. Each rail constructed is able to remain qualified for at least 20 years.
