A HIGH-SPEED line between Shanghai and Nanjing, capital of eastern China's Jiangsu province, was launched today.

The bullet trains, with a top speed of 350 kilometres per hour, cut the trip between the two major cities of the Yangtze River Delta from two hours to 73 minutes. They run at five-minute intervals during peak hours.

Some 200 of the new bullet trains will come and go from the new Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station, which also opened today. The new station forms a key part of Shanghai western Hongqiao Transport Hub, linking the Hongqiao International Airport, urban metro system and regional rail and bus routes.

Tickets currently cost RMB146 (US$21.50) and RMB233 for first class 56 per cent more expensive than the fare for previous fast trains along the same route. They can be bought from local train ticketing outlets and 80 cash-only ticket vending machines inside the station.
