This is the longest railway network for high-speed trains in the world. And it’s getting longer

The longest and most modern high-speed train network is in China, and the country plans to extend its length to 50,000 kilometers by 2025. This is clear from the new five-year transport plan issued this week by the State Council and published in the local media.

The network will be 12,000 km longer than it is now.

Which are the countries with the longest high-speed rail networks in the world?

The data for February 2020 speak for itself

This extension is so great that it goes beyond the combined length of the high-speed rail networks in Spain, Japan, France, Germany and Finland combined. The total length of the railways of these countries is 11,954 km, according to the International Railway Association.

Analysts say Beijing is accelerating investment in China’s infrastructure to curb the country’s economic slowdown. And of course, the high-speed trains are a typical example.

BDZ commented to Money.bg that the trains through the tunnel will be able to develop a speed of up to 160 km / h

The high-speed railway has already expanded to 38,000 km at the end of last year, which is 8,000 km more than the target set by Beijing in 2017.

Expanding high-speed rail lines is part of China’s efforts to increase its national rail network from 146,000 km to 165,000 km over the next three years, by 2025.
