Against the backdrop of the UIC World Congress on High Speed Rail held in Beijing last week, a new brochure entitled “High speed rail: Fast track to sustainable mobility” was published in English. A special China edition was also prepared for the Congress by the Chinese Railways.
This brochure, published every 2 years, will be the UIC High Speed reference document for 2011 and 2012. It is intended to shed some light on the principles and possibilities of high speed rail, with a view to a better and more logical development.
The document, developed in close cooperation with the UIC High Speed Plenary Members Committee, takes into account the comments received from Members.
