High-Speed Train Service Added to Popular RoutesMonday, December 16, 2013
High-speed train services connecting the Yangtze River Delta Region and northeastern China will commence on December 28, 2013, reducing the travel time from Shanghai to Harbin, the farthest provincial capital in northeast China, to less than 13 hours.
High-speed trains will run between Shanghai’s Hongqiao Station and major cities in the northeast (Harbin, Changchun, Shenyang and Dalian), and also between Ningbo in the Zhejiang province.
Also in the works is a high-speed train between Shenzhen, in the Guangdong province, and Shanghai, Nanjing, Hangzhou and Wenzhou. The future service will take 10 hours to travel from Shanghai to Shenzhen.
