World’s Longest Bullet Train Service Begins in China

(Beijing) – China has started service on the world’s longest high-speed rail route, the latest milestone in the country’s rapid and super fast rail network. The opening of the new 2,298-kilometre (1,425-mile) line between Beijing and Guangzhou means passengers will be whisked from the capital to the southern commercial hub in just 8 hours, compared with the 22 hours previously required.
Trains will travel at an average speed of 300 kilometres per hour over the line, which includes 35 stops in major cities such as Zhengzhou, Wuhan on the Yangtze River and Changsha.
