PRLog - March 21, 2012 - Have rail will travel. At least that is what officials in Asia seem to think, and they're putting their money where their mouth is. By 2014 China expects to have the worlds largest high speed rail network, spanning. The network will have 19,000 km of track and will connect 200 million people.

The country's Ministry of Railways, estimated the existing High Speed Rail services (excluding projects in the pipeline) should provide additional annual freight capacity of over 230 million tons for rail transportation, accounting for about 7% of 3.3bn tons of rail freight demand in 2009.

Take for instance the new Wuhan-Guangzhou high speed rail which can free up 87.6 million tons of freight capacity for the existing Beijing - Guangzhou rail lines. According to the latest official data, China has 6,920 km of high speed rail in full operations by August 2010, only 53% of the 13,000 km target set for 2012.
