Foreign media speculation that Chinese high-speed rail to be extended to 17 countries is intended to resources and future
China to use high-speed rail to Beijing and London, Singapore plans to link the world has aroused interest in these places except for the straight-line distance between the aircraft outside of any transport, the figures are astronomical , has been exported to the world of cheap shirts and sudden, the “toxic toys” scandal in China, it is now possible to do a real challenge to make the first world respected, earth-shattering thing. Ultimately blowing talk “aimed at China Resources” in the clichéd, but look forward to more media, “two days from London to Beijing’s low-carbon way to travel” and “as part of the world is what it is like.” Railway in China, known as the “Iron boss”, it has been a public opinion in the transport sector during the Spring Festival as a target to vent their anger, but inadvertently, the Chinese railway suddenly walked the forefront of the world, the rejection of many of the major industrialized countries in the dust. Not only China’s high-speed rail, China 200 km per hour moving cars in many countries can boast of old-fashioned railway network. Rail is becoming part of China’s most modern, and may stimulate a new round of global rail network emergence. Swedish scholar Carlson 11, “Global Times” reporter that if China became the world power in the future, then today’s high-speed rail investment decision is “a decisive role in the decision-making one.”
Chinese high-speed rail to be extended to the world
“Imagine how ‘Middle Kingdom’ travel? Forget the aircraft it, by plane, you must 20th century carbon emissions ‘criminals’, and soon the train would be the best way to travel in China plans to build high-speed rail network across the continent, to the London and various destinations in Asia to connect, including Beijing, Singapore and India the train’s speed can reach 200 miles from London’s Kings Cross train station to the center of Beijing only two days. “British” London “website article 10, which has such a large section of sensational description. Since the Chinese Academy of Engineering Wang Meng-shu recent media reports that China hopes to build 10 years and India to Europe after high-speed rail network, similar to the amazing world media and constantly come up on the online world.
to the Chinese Ministry of Railways spokesman for the 11 “Global Times” confirmed that China does have the high-speed rail network extended to other national plans, involving a total of 17 countries. But the plan is still preliminary stage of negotiation. He did not disclose the progress of the negotiations and details on line.
Canada “Edmonton Journal” said that China is negotiating with India and Europe to build high-speed rail network, use the Channel Tunnel, the railway network ultimately the passengers from London to Beijing, and then sending to Singapore. The second railway line will be through Russia to Germany, then with the European rail system together. The third railway line will be extended south and Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar and Malaysia’s railway network is connected. The article said “The new high-speed rail network may be even better than air travel,” the passengers boarded the train to London, then two days later in a straight line distance of 8100 km away in Beijing and get off the train can continue moving forward, 3 days after a distance of 10,800 kilometers away in Singapore to get off. And people fly from London to Beijing also needs 10 hours.
Europe’s largest-circulation newspaper “Bild” 10 to “Berlin – Beijing did not transfer” as the subject reported that China is planning to pass through Central Asia’s “super-railway line”, which has a direct access to Berlin not midway.
In fact, talking about this for many countries is not a plan of things pop up. Land-based Tsinghua University, Institute of Transportation general told reporters that this should be an integral part of the Trans-Asian Railway network. In 2006, Asian countries and regions, 18 representatives of Busan, South Korea signed the “Intergovernmental Agreement on Asian Railway Network”, plan to jointly build trans-Asian railway network, this “Iron Silk Road” connecting 28 Asian countries and region, with a total length of 81,000 km.
high-speed rail network between Asia and Europe: from dream to reality the distance
high-speed railway for nearly half a century, but extended to the high-speed rail abroad and link into a network, it is a much more difficult thing.
researcher Elena ? Sweden EU 11 Carlson told the “Global Times” reporter, even a deep level of integration in Europe, this region, the construction of cross-border high-speed rail network is not easy, When the 2007 Franco-German high-speed rail to overcome difficulties when opened, it was considered an important symbol of European integration events.
Carlson that, compared with the EU, China and other countries’ high-speed rail friendship “will face even more difficulties. She said that China has the advantage of huge market attractiveness, weaknesses will have to exclude the outside world such as China threat theory and other concerns. In other words, China’s foreign development of high iron, economic and energy, the environment is no doubt on the significance, the only obstacle in some countries of China’s political concerns.
Japan’s “Sankei Shimbun” published 10 titles of “China and Southeast Asia to Central Asia, 17 countries out of tentacles,” the report said, to sell to Southeast Asia or Central Asia, China, and China is becoming a high-speed rail these countries the main topic of the summit. China keen to build their own as a starting point of the “big high-speed rail network,” the background is to promote the import of resources, and expand the influence of the surrounding countries. China is not connected with Iran and other countries are also included. The article also said in the tone of speculation, said the construction of high-speed rail network to the Middle East oil-producing countries, this is China’s biggest export purpose high-speed railway.
ABC reported that the current high-speed rail network between Asia and Europe have been involved in negotiations on most of the countries in Southeast Asia and Central Asia countries, which are mostly less developed countries, but rich in mineral resources. Such as Burma agrees to provide to its rich reserves of lithium in exchange for funds to support this project.
China is “planning for the future”
railway in China is linked with the modern dream. In 1912, Sun Yat-sen resigned from office after the provisional president when the Republic of China railway supervision, Sung he had described his dream — “in 10 years, the building 20 miles of lines, vertical and horizontal in the top five between the Department. ” China, was particularly difficult to achieve this dream, until the early 1990s, the Chinese trains run an average of only 48.3 km per hour. However, high-speed railway in China in recent years has forced the development of the world was surprised.
“New York Times” commented that China’s high-speed rail network on the commitment will make China more competitive economy, which is very like the United States in half a century ago to build the interstate highway system to improve productivity and reduce costs. U.S. National Railroad Passenger Corporation Vice President for Policy and Development Stephen said: “They just need a lot of equipment and technology will be developed enough to push China to rise to leadership position.”
Australia, “Sydney Herald Morning, “commented that, in the United States, Japan race to build high-speed railway line is, these three countries want rail travel rather than take the pollution of larger aircraft and automobile travel has once again become the backbone of domestic travel network.
addition to China, the world’s more developed high-speed railway in Japan, Germany, France, this medium-sized countries, like Russia, Canada, the United States, India’s vast land and large country, are not too more high-speed railway.
Russia length of railway lines in use 8.52 million km, China last year was just over the railway length third in the world, but passenger trains an average of only 70-80 kilometers per hour.
the United States is the world’s longest railway mileage of the country, but the railway is mainly used for freight. Railway passenger transport still exists, basically used as a tourist line, not the pursuit of speed. The case of Canada and the United States similar to the passenger serious decline, mainly as a tourist route, the passenger has not only faster and faster speeds, but more slowly. The United States can be regarded as the only “high iron” rail is in operation between Washington and Boston, “ACELA” express train, the average speed of 109 km across the board, the fastest 240 km. Last year, China Wuhan-Guangzhou high-speed railway in operation, the United States, CNN has reported that it made America’s “ACELA” Express looks like a playground in the train.
high-speed railway in China aviation industry has not fully developed when the rise, so did not go like the United States, Canada, as the road, the railway in China has never been into a sunset industry.
land-based S & P said that no country like China there is a high speed rail construction. This is mainly because China has strong demand, and economic strength to support the concept of sustainable development-oriented role. China’s urbanization process, to include high-speed railway, including railway construction provides a great development of the background. And the rise of Chinese high-speed rail will bring the world may be the next round of major rail development.
Carlson said that China’s development of high-speed rail is a very wise choice, will find a new economic anchor in the same time, occupy the high ground of future energy use, the political high ground. Compared with Europe, China did not even intra-European coordination constraints of the problem, and compared with the United States, China is ahead this time, so the establishment of high-speed rail network in China, its meaning can be regarded as development in the history of “turning the war.” Carlson said that if China became the world power in the future, then today’s high-speed rail investment decisions, is “one plays a decisive role.” Therefore, China’s development of high-speed rail, not chosen a backward mode of transportation, but in the “planning for the future.” ▲
