Hong Kong: Superfast maglev train may soon come to HK

Post by IMB »

A new high-speed maglev train capable of reaching speeds of 620 kilometers per hour could be introduced to Hong Kong once it is operational, says the Beijing transport ministry.

[...]
The train is still a prototype and could be operational in three to 10 years, the ministry said.
Wang Zhiqing, vice minister of transport, said he hopes once the train finishes its trial it can be used to connect Hong Kong, allowing the city to join the country's development.

[...]
Wang Yang, chief engineer at the ministry, said the train is advantageous as it is able to climb steep slopes, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly.

[...]
China revealed the prototype in Chengdu, Sichuan, in January. The train runs on high-temperature superconducting power that makes it look as if it is floating along the magnetized tracks.

[...]
Pro-Beijing media suggested that the new train may be able to reach Hong Kong from Guangzhou in around 20 minutes.
The Express Rail Link, which runs at a top speed of 300kph, takes 48 minutes to reach Hong Kong from Guangzhou
