Harbin – Mudanjiang Railway
Construction work began on December 15, 2014. The route was inaugurated on December 25, 2018.
The electrified route is almost 300 km long and designed for a top speed of 250 km / h . The distance between the track axes is 4.6 m. The minimum curve radius is 3500 m, the maximum gradient is 30 ‰. The route includes 109 bridges and a raised route with a total length of 103 km, 39 tunnels with a total length of 69 km and nine train stations . The cost of construction was around 40 billion renminbi (5.3 billion euros ).
The fastest connections on the new line between the two cities take just under an hour and a half to drive. That is a third of the travel time that trains need on the existing route that has been used so far. From Mudanjiang there is a connection to the Suifenhe border station with a transition to the Russian railway via a well-developed existing line .
