Dear MEL Topic Readers,

World’s first 350km-per-hour driverless bullet train goes into service in China

Another milestone by China’s railway network. China already has the world’s largest high-speed railway network, having added 5,000 kilometers in 2019 alone to 35,000 kilometers at the end of the year and is extending another 2,000 kilometers this year, which will represent over 70% of the world’s total. The newest line opened on December 30, connecting the capital city and 2022 Winter Olympic host city Zhangjiakou. The 174-km high-speed railway track has reduced the travel time between Beijing and Zhangjiakou from three hours to 47 minutes at a maximum design speed of 350 km/h. What is amazing is not just the speed of the operation and construction, which took just four years, but how it is run. It is the world’s first automated high- speed railway. The train automatically starts, stops and adjusts to the different speed limits between 10 stations. Also, there are smart cars that offer convenience and comfort for the Winter Olympic and Paralympic athletes and media personnel at slightly higher ticket prices.

Enjoy reading the article and learn about China’s smartest and coolest high-speed train line.
