China's bullet train launched

China started using the world's fastest 'bullet train', which goes at a speed of 350 kilometers per hour.

The trains will travel the road from Beijing, the capital of China, to Shanghai and will complete the 1.250 kilometer distance in 4 hours and 30 minutes.

China launched its 2008-kilometer train for the first time in August 350, but after the accident near Wenzhou in 2011 in which 40 people died and 191 people were injured, the speed of the train dropped to 250-300 kilometers per hour.

China, aiming to cover a distance of 2020 thousand kilometers with iron networks by 10, has established a 20 thousand kilometer high-speed rail network.

Qi Yanhui, deputy director of the China Department of Railways Science and Technology, said the technology used to train train could also be adapted for railway products abroad.
