The article discusses the high-speed railway network construction program in China. The Chinese government will release 2,000 billion yuan or 298 billion U.S. dollars at current prices on the project, which will see no less than 13,000 route-kilometer of high speed line by 2012 and another 5,000 route-kilometer over the next eight years. The centralized planning was prepared by the Development and Reform Commission.
