China starts work on $1.5bn maglev train factory
China Railway Construction Corporation began work yesterday on a $1.5bn project to build an industrial complex to make parts for a maglev test line. The park will be in the city of Changsha in south-central Hunan province. It will cover 15ha and, when complete in 2020, is expected to have an annual output of $1.5bn. The line itself is expected to stretch 5.4km and will operate at a maximum speed of 200km/h.
China already has one maglev line operating in Shanghai that travels between Shanghai Pudong International Airport and an interchange with the Shanghai metro. This runs at more than 430km/h, making it the world’s fastest commercial train service. This was built with German technology.
