Chinese train manufacturer CRRC Corporation announced that it will begin construction of a new maglev railway, which will allow trains to travel at up to 600 kilometers per hour, says People’s Daily China, according to Vaveta.
The first prototype is expected to be delivered in 2020, and the test track will be built in Shandong province.
Based on electromagnetic induction, maglev trains are suspended over railway tracks. Thanks to the consequent reduced friction, the travelling speed of maglev trains is twice that of the fastest high-speed train, and close to that of airplanes.
