Font:〖L M S

On October 8, construction has started on the new South Jiangsu Riverside Railway, the third high-speed railway connecting Nanjing with Shanghai that will halve travel times between Shanghai and cities in the southern part of Jiangsu.

The new South Jiangsu Riverside Railway will have eight stations, and will join the Beijing-Shanghai and Shanghai-Nanjing high-speed railways in connecting the two cities.

South Jiangsu Riverside Railway will stop mostly at county-level cities and districts, including Jurong in Zhenjiang; Jintan and Wujin in Changzhou; Jiangyin in Wuxi; and Zhangjiagang, Changshu and Taicang in Suzhou.

Construction of the 278-kilometer-long South Jiangsu Riverside Railway will finish in 42 months. Between 200 and 260 trains will run on the tracks every day at a speed of 350 km/h.

By 2022, people in southern Jiangsu will be able to arrive in Shanghai and Nanjing within an hour.
