High-Speed Rail to Link Central China Cities in 2017

Tracks started to be laid in Yangxin County in central China's Hubei Province for a high-speed railway linking Wuhan, the provincial capital, and Jiujiang City in east China's Jiangxi Province.

The 198-kilometer line will be put into operation in the first half of 2017, linking Hubei's Wuhan, Ezhou, Huangshi, and Yangxin and Jiujiang.

With 19.4 billion yuan ($2.95 billion) of investment, the project broke ground in 2014 and is designed to support trains at a speed of 250 kilometers per hour.

When completed, it will take an hour to travel between Wuhan and Jiujiang, instead of about three hours by train at present.
