High-speed train in China




High-speed train yard


High-speed rail has developed rapidly in China over the past 15 years with substantial funding from the Chinese
government, especially the economic stimulus program during the Great Recession. The removal of Railway
Minister, Liu Zhijun for corruption and a fatal railway accident near Wenzhou in 2011 raised
concerns about safety as well as affordability, financial sustainability and environmental impact. China's early
high-speed trains were imported or built under technology transfer agreements with foreign train-makers,
including Alstom, Siemens, Bombardier and Kawasaki Heavy Industrie. Following the initial technological transfer
is over, Chinese engineers have re-designed internal train components and built indigenous trains manufactured
by the state-owned CRRC Corporation
, the world largest railroad-car company.
The HSR building boom continues with the HSR network set to reach 38,000 km in 2025.

記事を掲載した。高速鉄道は中国人の生活を大きく変えたと言えるだろう。広大な中国を短時間で移動できるようになった。
北京ー香港間の場合、従来の鉄道では約24時間かかっていたところ、今では高速鉄道を利用すれば9時間で移動できる。
北京ー上海間では時速300Km/H以上で走行、所要時間は最速、4時間30分以内である。

中国では旧正月など長期休暇では満席になるものの、休暇期間以外は空席が目立ち、旅行者やビジネス客などの需要が

Harsher punishment for smoking on high-speed trains
ChinaDaily

China Railway Corporation, the nation's railway operator, in August 2016, issued new rules further
to tighten up the smoking ban on trains, saying that any passengers who are caught twice violating
the ban will be forbidden to purchase any high-speed train tickets across China.
A violator of the no-smoking rule may be fined up to 2,000 yuan ($300).
