Xinjiang high-speed railway to start this month

英语新闻:

A high-speed rail line connecting Urumqi, capital of Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, and the region's Hami Prefecture will begin operations on November 16, China Railway Corporation (CRC) announced on Wednesday.

It is part of the 1,776-kilometer Lanzhou-Xinjiang high-speed railway that stretches across Northwest China's Gansu Province, Qinghai Province and Xinjiang.


The bullet trains will initially run at a speed of about 200 kilometers per hour. Travel time between Urumqi and Hami will be reduced from five to around three hours.

China started building the 530-kilometer rail link in January 2010.

The rest of the Lanzhou-Xinjiang railway will be in operation by the end of 2014.

"The high-speed railway will further improve travel conditions for all ethnic groups in Xinjiang. It will also facilitate the economic and social development in the autonomous region," the CRC said in a statement.
