The crazy high-speed train project of the Chinese to the USA: Chinese officials announced yesterday that they are planning to implement a high-speed train project to the US yesterday.
According to the news of the state newspaper Beijing Times; The planned line will start in the north east of China, reach through the USA through Alaska and Canada through a tunnel that will pass through Siberia and under the Pacific Ocean.
200 KM SUBMARINE TUNNEL REQUIRED
Speaking to the newspaper, one of the experts from the Chinese Academy of Engineering, Wang Mengshu, states that a 200 km submarine tunnel is required to cross the Bering Strait between Russia and Alaska. According to Wang; Russia has been thinking about the project for many years and the two countries are ready to discuss the issue.
13 THROUGH THE THOUSAND MILKING DISTANCE
The project called "China-Russia plus America line" is planned to combine a distance of 13 thousand kilometers. The longest line in the world currently in use, the Trans Siberian railway, is only 3 thousand kilometers. If the project is realized, it will take 350 days to travel from one end of the line to another end at 2 km / h.
A NON-SIMPLE ENGINEERING SKILL REQUIRES
The project published in the newspaper brought along many question marks. There is no clear information as to whether the Chinese government has consulted Russia, the USA or Canada regarding the project. Even the tunnel, which is planned to be built only in Bering Strait, requires a unique engineering skill. The project requires 4 times longer tunnel than the world's longest tunnel in the English Channel.
“ONE OF 4 INTERNATIONAL YHT”
Another state newspaper, China Daily, states that the required tunnel technology is already available and used in the high-speed train project between China and Taiwan. According to Beijing Times; this project is one of China's 4 international high speed train line projects. Another of the projects starts from the western city of Urumqi is one of China, Kazakhstan-Uzbekistan-Turkmenistan-Iran and Turkey reaches out to Germany.
