Services start on Yichang-Wanzhou railway

2 July 2014
A bullet train service has been launched between the Yangtze port cities of Yichang, Hubei province, and Wanzhou, Chongqing municipality. The mountainous route covers 377km and has been described as the most challenging high-speed rail project that China has ever built.

Wang Tongliang, an official at Wuhan Railway Bureau, said the service will cut the journey time between Chongqing and Wuhan, capital of Hubei, from more than 11 hours to just six hours and 40 minutes, Xinhua reported.

The railway includes 159 tunnels and 253 bridges, accounting for about 74 per cent of its entire length.
