China’s railway network to reach 150,000 km by 2020

The National Development and Reform Commission said on July 20 that China will expand its railway network to 150,000 kilometers by 2020.

That will include 30,000 kilometers of high-speed railways. The plan will mean a 24 percent increase in the length of China’s railway network from 2015 and a 58 percent expansion in high-speed rail.

China aims to invest 800 billion yuan in fixed assets in 2016 as part of the effort to expand the country’s railway network. The NDRC says the high-speed rail system will reach 38,000 kilometers by 2025.
