High-speed train projects inject vitality into nation

By XING YI in Shanghai | CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2020-10-09 00:00

A train arrives at or leaves Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station every 1.4 minutes, and every day more than 300,000 passengers pass through the station.

One can get around quickly by getting on a high-speed train from here: It only takes 45 minutes to get to Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, around one hour to Nanjing, Jiangsu province, a little over two hours to Hefei, Anhui province, and less than five hours to Beijing.

The busy scene at the station during the National Day holiday epitomizes the results of the large-scale construction of the nation's high-speed railway system over the past two decades.
