AROUND 1000 guests attended a ceremony in the Korean city of Yongin today to mark the inauguration of the Yongin EverLine, an automated light metro linking Giheung station on Korail's Bundang Line with Everland, the country's largest theme park.
CSR Nanjing Puzhen has secured an order from the city of Nanjing for 15 low-floor LRVs, which are based on Bombardier's Flexity 2 technology and will serve two new light rail lines in the city, the 8km line in Hexi New City in southwest of the city, and the 9km line in Qilin Science and Technology Park in the east.
AN express metro is to be constructed from Beijing South station to the Chinese capital's new airport which will be built in the southern district of Daxing. The line is expected to be 37km long and with a journey time of around 30 minutes.
CHINA's former railway minister Mr Liu Zhijun, who was dismissed from the post in February 2011 for what was described at the time as "serious disciplinary violations," has been charged with bribery and abuse of power, according to a report from the Xinhua News Agency.
