The China Railway Harbin Group Co., Ltd. began trial operation on Thursday morning of a new railway linking the cities of Mudanjiang and Jiamusi in northeast China's Heilongjiang Province.
Located in the easternmost part of China, the 370-km Mudanjiang-Jiamusi high-speed railway line is expected to be ready for operation by the end of September.
The construction of the railway began in November 2016 and the track-laying work was completed in November 2020. With a design speed of 250 km per hour, there are seven stations along the line.
The operation of the new railway is expected to boost the region's economic and social development.
