New High-Speed Railway for Tianjin and Qinghuangdao

A new high-speed railway connecting the two northern port cities of Tianjin and Qinhuangdao was put into operation last week, cutting travel time between the two destinations significantly.

The new railway line runs through 14 districts and counties in northern China’s Hebei Province and Tianjin Municipality, covering 178 miles and reaching speeds of up to 217 km per hour.

Before the launch of the new Tianjin-Qinghuangdao railway, China already boasted 34 high-speed rail lines, accounting for one-tenth of the country’s total railway operation mileage. The new Tianjin-Qinghuangdao railway brings another high-speed rail line to China’s northeastern provinces.

 

A new high-speed railway that connects the two northern port cities of Tianjin and Qinhuangdao was put into operation on Dec.1, 2013.
