China, Zhengzhou-Xuzhou High Speed Railway to enter operation in September 2016

China Daily reported on 4 August 2016 that a new generation High Speed Rail (HSR) train, capable of operating at a top speed of 380 kph, will enter passenger service on the 362 km long Zhengzhou - Xuzhou line in September 2016. Chinese press is proudly reporting it as “the world’s fastest high speed train” (excluding Maglev).
Engineers completed the interconnection between the Beijing-Guangzhou high speed line and the Zhengzhou - Xi'an high speed line on the morning of 3 August 2016, thus obtaining a continuous high speed track crossing China's Eastern and Middle Western regions.

The new CRH380 model train will reduce travel time between Zhengzhou East Station and Xuzhou East Station from 2 hours and 33 minutes to around 80 minutes. This will represent a significant improvement for passengers wishing to travel between Central China's Henan province and East China's Jiangsu province.
