During the period 2021-2025, China will promote major technological research and development such as key technologies for 400 km/h high-speed railways and 600 km high-speed magnetic levitation systems.
It is estimated that by the end of 2020, the national railway operating mileage will reach 146,000 kilometers, including 38,000 kilometers of high-speed railways and 90,000 kilometers of railways in the central and western regions. The railway double-track rate and electrification rate reached 60% and 73% respectively. A high-speed rail construction and equipment manufacturing technology system with independent intellectual property rights has been formed. The Chinese standard EMU of Fuxing has achieved commercial operation at a speed of 350 kilometers per hour, and a series of product pedigrees have basically taken shape. For the first time in the world, intelligent EMUs have achieved automatic driving at a speed of 350 kilometers per hour. The equipment level of railway high-power locomotives, heavy-duty vehicles, and communication signals has been greatly improved.
