The high-speed network is not only expected to ease congestion on conventional lines but will also have a positive impact on freight transportation, and boost productivity throughout the economy.
Bombardier, the first foreign train-maker to form a joint venture in China, has been sharing technology for the manufacture of railway passenger cars and rolling stock since While other countries argue about the pros and cons of high-speed rail, it is already reality in China. The earliest PDLs built were sections of the corridors that connected large cities in the same region.
All units in this series are in the category of high-speed distributed-power electric multiple units EMU and CRH6 was domestically developed and used for intercity high-speed lines.
Only 38 months after breaking ground in Aprilthe first bullet train on the 1,km-long high-speed line left Beijing on route to Shanghai. In addition to the accessibility advantage, HSR offers a variety of technological innovations. Bombardier transfers advanced and mature technology to China, which we do not treat as an experimental market.
Understanding these technological innovations is important as it plays an important role in improving the passenger experience. In Beijing South train station, for instance, large numbers of passengers are uncertain whether they have passed the station, they tend to ask for help rather than reading information and signage, this will further cause the congestion problems in the train station.
For example, too many people can result in negative feelings. Beijing South train station. The final part of the line, going from Shanghai and Hangzhou is still under construction, as the government plans a further expansion to other major hubs located near the coast.
Chinese train-makers, after receiving transferred foreign technology, have been able to achieve a considerable degree of self-sufficiency in making the next generation of high-speed trains by developing indigenous capability to produce key parts and improving upon foreign designs.
