Nobody can say China isn’t ambitious. After boldly announcing plans to build an underwater train that travels from China to the USA, the country has unveiled another large-scale, cross-border infrastructure project: a high-speed rail line from Beijing to Moscow.
China and Russia have signed a four-party agreement that laid the groundwork for the new rail corridor. The trip will cover more than 7,000 kilometers and last two days.
Construction will take 10 years. The first step is to build a rail line between Moscow and Kazan, the capital of Tatarstan, Russia.
China has the most extensive network of high-speed trains in the world as well as the highest number of passengers.
