China’s New Bullet Trains Just Launched For Beijing to Shanghai and Vice Versa

If I understand correctly of what is going on in the video, then the new China’s bullet trains (launched from Beijing to Shanghai and vice versa) operate at 350 km/h.  The new Beijing-Shanghai bullet trains could also reach the speed of 400 km/h.  According to the speakers in the video, China first built high-speed rail system in 2004, but after 13 years China’s high-speed rail system is considered to be the longest in the world.  According to Wikipedia, annual ridership for China’s high-speed rail is around or over 1.44 billion headcount.  Unlike China’s earliest bullet train models, newer ones like Beijing-Shanghai bullet trains that just got launched are totally indigenously built and patented.

This decade has seen China building amazing architectural infrastructures.  For an example, if the documentary video right after the break isn’t too far off, I guess China is still holding the title of having built a longest arch bridge in the world.  The bridge is known as Shanghai Lupu Arch Bridge.  Check out the documentary video right after the break.  Enjoy!!!
