Work on high-speed railway line accelerates revival

By Ma Chenguang and Zhuang Qiange | China Daily | Updated: 2020-03-26 00:00

A 125.12-kilometer-long high-speed railway in Central China's Hubei province, where the novel coronavirus outbreak began, has resumed construction work when one of the builders, the China Tiesiju Civil Engineering (CTCE) Group, first brought its workers back on the site on Monday.

The railway links the city of Huanggang and Huangmei county with a total investment of 17.04 billion yuan ($2.4 billion). The project is a component of the country's design of "eight vertical and eight horizontal" high-speed railway lines and is scheduled to finish in June 2022.

Luo Lan, chief of engineering for CTCE's railway project, said that after gaining approval from the local authorities, his employees have restarted work on the extra-large railway bridge spanning the Macheng-Yangxin Expressway.
