Pub Date:16-09-13 09:37 Source:www.cnanhui.org

The travel time from Hefei, capital of East China’s Anhui province, to Anqing in the southwest of the province will be slashed to 40 minutes as construction on a high-speed railway between the two cities is due to start later this year, anhuinews.com reported.

The 162-km-long rail link is designed to pass Feixi, Lujiang, Shucheng and Huaining counties. Upon completion, it will allow trains to run at a maximum speed of 350 km.

The project is expected to kick off within this year and due for completion in December 2019.

Currently, a train trip between the cities takes at least 95 minutes.
