PR China's National Transportation Plan 2021-2035

CHINA has published its ambitious National Transportation Plan 2021-2035, according to which the rail network is to expand to 70,000 km [43,500 mi] of high-speed lines and 130,000 km [80,800] of conventional lines by 2035. It focuses on the development of intercity networks in the Jingjinji, Yangtze River Delta, Greater Bay and Chongqing-Chengdu areas. The plan also calls for further development of a maglev system based on Transrapid's EMS technology to connect selected major cities. Two projects are currently underway in China for the further development of EMS maglev trains, which are expected to reach speeds of up to 600 kilometers per hour [370+ mph]. Cooperation agreements exist between ThyssenKrupp Transrapid GmbH and the University of Stuttgart, among others.

In Chinese urban and regional transport, several urban maglev systems are already in everyday operation or in the test phase, among others in cooperation with the Max Bögl company and its Transport System Bögl (TSB). Further rail systems are under development.

An English-language report by Andrew Benton can be found in the trade publication International Railway Journal, among others:
