Concept of high-speed railway China-Ukraine-Europe presented in Kiev

The Association "High Speed Highways" proposes to build a high-speed railway from China to Europe through Ukraine. The project involves creation of an alternative New Silk Road from China to Europe. The highway will connect the PRC with 7 countries - Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Ukraine and Poland, reports UkrAgroConsult.

The track’s width along the entire route should correspond to Chinese standard, that is 1435 mm, and the speed of trains should exceed 250 km/h. Total length of the railway corridor should be 5100 km (excluding sea segments), which is 200 km shorter than the Eurasian land bridge (China-Kazakhstan-Russia-Belarus-Poland), through which containers from China reach the European Union.
