[CN] 650 km/h Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Hong Kong high-speed maglev

Post by latestnews »

The city of Guangzhou, Shenzhen, and Hong Kong are planning a high-speed maglev train route with designed speed of 650 km per hour, said an expert at a forum held in Guanghzou, Guangdong province, on Aug 5.

The maglev train plan aims to build a 30-minute traffic circle among the three cities, and a 40-minute one among other cities of the Greater Bay Area, said Chen Xiangsheng, an academician at the Chinese Academy of Engineering and dean of the College of Civil and Transportation Engineering at Shenzhen University, Guangdong province, Guangzhou Daily reported on Monday.

The passenger flow density of Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong will reach 260 million people by 2035, thus a new high-speed project is a necessity to this area, Chen said.

The academician introduced four options for the Greater Bay Area maglev line, with departure stations at Guangzhou including the Guangzhoudong Railway Station, Zhujiang New Town Station, and Guangzhou Railway Station.

Option one includes stopovers at Guangzhoudong Railway Station, Dongguan Guancheng, and Shenzhen Honey Lake, which is the favorable option among the four candidates, he said, adding that all four options are reserved for northern extension to Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport and southern extension to Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Besides Guangzhou and Shenzhen, other cities including Shanghai and Hangzhou, Chengdu and Chongqing are also planning for maglev lines, Chen said.

On August 5, the 36th "Huacheng Academician Forum" was held in Guangzhou. Chen Xiangsheng, academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, foreign academician of the Russian Academy of Engineering, double-appointed academician of Beijing Jiaotong University and dean of the School of Civil and Transportation Engineering of Shenzhen University, presented the design of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Maglev Line. The line is designed to reach a speed of 650 kilometers per hour and will be an important transportation support for the construction of the Guangdong Bay Area. Currently, there are four alternatives, of which Option 1 is considered the preferred option. It is the East Line via Xiangmihu program, which means it starts from Guangzhou East Railway Station, passes through Dongguan Guancheng, and finally arrives at Shenzhen Xiangmihu. The other three alternatives are the East Line via Qianhai route, the West Line via Zhujiang New City route, and the West Line via Guangzhou Railway Station route.

Academician Chen Xiangsheng pointed out that in order to realize the goal of high-quality economic development and the construction of a world-class Bay Area, it is necessary to vigorously promote the development of intelligent transportation and provide convenient, efficient, safe and economical means of transportation and travel to support the construction of the Guangdong Bay Area. As an advanced mode of transportation with the advantages of high speed, low noise and low energy consumption, maglev was chosen as the design option for the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong maglev line.
