Before the end of the year, the high-speed railway between Shanghai and Changsha will go into operation, Ecns reports. The new service will cut the time between the two cities from seven to five hours, and will take ten hours less than existing K-type trains servicing the route.
The section between Changsha and Hangzhou will add to the existing Shanghai-Hangzhou track, along which trains will be able to travel at a maximum of 300 km/hr. Tests between Hangzhou and Nanchang were carried out late last month.
