- In this video Railways Explained team discusses how China managed to construct 36,000 km (22.400 mi) of brand-new high-speed railway lines - in less than 12 years (!), and, more importantly, tries to provide a comprehensive insight into the whole Chinese high-speed rail network - its historical background, development, geography, main characteristics and mechanisms that made it possible.

Just to remind you, in 2008, China had only one such line, between Beijing and Tianjin which is only 117 km long (73 mi).

As a basic source for this video we used comprehensive report prepared by the World Bank, which alone financed construction of more than 2,600 km of high-speed railways in China.

We covered the aspect of traffic needs and demands, Chinese strategic development documents and their implementation, but also we explained how the standardization of procedures contributed to the construction efficiency, and shared some details regarding the Chinese supply and manufacturing industry.

The World Bank Report that we mentioned provides much more details and a valuable insight into how China managed to construct such large number of high-speed lines in such short time, including remarkable record of on-time and on-budget completion. So, in case you want to know more, we recommend to you to check that report out.
