In India, metros are moving higher and higher up the transport agenda.

To enhance the productivity of its urban cities and sustain its 8-9%

economic growth, Asia’s third-largest economy will need to add 400km of

new subway tracks.

For the next ten years, the government is investing about US$ 45B on

constructing a strong transport infrastructure in its million-plus cities.

Soon, metros will be running in 8 more cities, aside from those currently

running and under construction: Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai, Bangalore,

Chennai and Hyderabad.

Beijing–Tianjin Intercity Railway Site Tour

Wednesday, 21st September, 2011

Beijing–Tianjin Intercity Railway is a high-speed rail, passenger-dedicated line

between Beijing and Tianjin in China. The 117 km line was built to accommodate trains

traveling at a maximum speed of 350 km/h (217 mph), and currently carries CRH

high-speed trains running speeds up to 330 km/h (205 mph). When the line opened on

August 1, 2008, it set the record for the fastest conventional train service in the world

by top speed, and reduced travel time between the two largest cities in northern China

from 70 to 30 minutes.

Site Tour Agenda

14:30 From hotel to Beijing South Railway Station

The current Beijing South Railway Station is a large railway station on the south side of Beijing

that opened on August 1, 2008. The new station replaced the old Beijing South Station, first

known as the Majiapu Railway Station and later known as the Yongdingmen Railway Station

before 1988, which stood 500 m away and operated from 1897 to 2006. The new Beijing South

Station, reportedly the largest in Asia, joins the Beijing Railway Station and the Beijing West

Railway Station as the third major passenger rail hub in the Chinese capital. It will serve as the

terminus for high-speed trains to the city, including the Beijing–Tianjin Intercity Rail, which can

reach speeds above 350 km/h.

15:35 Beijing–Tianjin Intercity Railway (Deluxe one-way) (Beijing South to


With effect from mid-2009, only CRH3 trains are used for intercity services on the line. For longer

distance trains from Beijing South to Ji'nan, Qingdao, Shanghai and Yangliuqing, slower CRH2A

(200 km/h, overspeed to 250 km/h on the line) are used as before. The signaling system is built

around Simis W electronic interlockings, Vicos operations control system and ETCS Level 1 train

control system. The caternary system in use is Sicat HA, aluminum cantilever, powered by two

sub-stations at 25kV 50Hz AC.

16:30 Beijing–Tianjin Intercity Railway (Deluxe one-way)(Tianjin to Beijing


17:00 From Beijing South Railway Station to hotel

The site tour is limited to the first 30 two-day pass holders.

Registration starts at 2:00pm. The tour will commence

at 2:30pm and will end at 5:30pm.
