China’s high-speed railway line connecting Beijing and Zhangjiakou, the co-host city of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics, has officially gone into operation, complete with 5G connectivity, wireless charging and intelligent lighting. The G8811 smart train began its maiden voyage from Beijing North Railway Station at around 8:30 a.m. to Zhangjiakou in north China’s Hebei Province on Dec. 30, 2019.
It has maximum speed of 217.48 mph and reduces travel time between Beijing and Zhangjiakou, a distance of around 108-miles, from over 3-hours to just 47-minutes, making it a key component of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. Construction of the high-speed railway took approximately four years from start to finish and cost $7.8-billion USD.
