(MENAFN) China raised the speed trains on the Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway to 350 kph, with the aim of making it the world's fastest train service.
Accordingly, this speed increase will cut the distance between Beijing and Shanghai to 4 hours and 28 minutes.
"The Beijing-Shanghai high-speed railway was built to the world's highest standards, and the Fuxing trains were designed to run at a maximum speed of 350 kph. Operating the Fuxing on this route at a speed of 350 kph is without question in terms of safety, reliability and comfort," said Lu Dongfu, CR general manager.
The ticket price will not be changed for the current time, He Huawu, a special technical advisor to CR general manager, stated.
