An express railway line started operation on Sunday in Northeast China, linking the cities of Harbin and Jiamusi in Heilongjiang province.
The 344-km line, built in a region where the temperature can be as low as minus 40 C in winter, is designed to allow trains to run at 200 km per hour, cutting the travel time to 123 minutes from about 344 minutes, said the China Railway Harbin Group.
Construction of the railway line started in July 2014 as one of the key projects included in China's mid-and-long term railway network scheme. Trials of the railway line were launched in May this year.
China's railway network is expected to hit 175,000 km in length by 2025, compared with 127,000 km of operating tracks by the end of last year.
The autumn schedule for power grid maintenance in Harbin, Northeast China’s Heilongjiang province concluded on Oct 30.
The High People’s Court of Heilongjiang province officially launched Thunderbolt Action.
About 10 government departments in Daoli district, Harbin, Heilongjiang province, carried out joint enforcement June 1 to remove more than 20 illegal constructions with a total area of over 2000 square meters to advance an expropriation project.
Harbin has seen a dramatic reduction in traffic congestion, according to statistics released by Amap, a Chinese navigation service provider.
