CSR wins high-speed train bid in Hong Kong

A subsidiary of China South Locomotive and Rolling Stock Corporation Limited (CSR) announced Tuesday that it has won a bid to provide high-speed trains for the Hong Kong section of an inter-city high-speed railway connecting Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Guangzhou.

The company said that it will supply nine sets of high-speed trains for Hong Kong, each set consisting of eight carriages. The trains are designed to reach a speed of 350 km/h.

Subsidiary CSR Sifang said the high-speed trains will be based on its independently-made CRH 380A-model trains. The company said it will insure the safety and reliability of the trains while seeking to make further improvements.

CSR is China’s leading train manufacturer. The inter-city railway will be 142 kilometers in length upon completion. The railway is expected to completed by 2015.

The line will be used by around 100,000 passengers per day in its first year of operation, rising to 160,000 by 2031.
