The Harbin Railway Bureau recently announced they have scheduled the construction of the high-speed intercity railway connecting Harbin-Dalian-Beijing-Shenyang to be completed and open to traffic in 2012. The high-speed rail will cut travel time from Beijing to Harbin to less than 4 hours – half the normal travel time between the cities at the moment.
The Harbin-Dalian Intercity High-Speed Rail (passenger line) and Beijing-Shenyang Intercity High-Speed Rail are both under constructions at the moment. The Harbin-Dalian Intercity High-Speed Rail line spans a total length of 903 km, and runs parallel to the regular Harbin-Dalian railway line. The trains are designed for speeds of 350 km/hr, shortening travel time between Harbin and Shenyang from 4 hours to 1.5 hours. The Beijing-Shenyang Intercity High-Speed Rail runs at the same rate, shortening the travel time from Beijing to Shenyang to 2 hours and 18 minutes.
