This year, the railway plans to invest 630billion yuan to focus on the construction of Western high-speed railway

after the suspension or semi suspension of some railway projects under construction nationwide due to the shortage of funds, the growth trend of infrastructure investment in 2013 is expected to help railway construction out of the trough, and the investment scale of more than 600billion yuan expected by the industry will drive more western high-speed railway construction

Wang Mengshu, an academician of the Chinese Academy of engineering, said in an interview recently that after the opening of Harbin Dalian high-speed railway in the northeast, the focus of high-speed railway construction this year will be on the West and southwest regions, striving to connect Xi'an to Lanzhou, Lanzhou to Xining and other lines, and passenger dedicated lines from Chengdu to Chongqing, Guangzhou to Guiyang and other cities will also be connected as soon as possible, so that high-speed railways in the West and southwest regions can be connected with high-speed railways in the Middle East, Narrow the gap between central and western cities

the vertical hot and horizontal cold pattern of high-speed rail may change

although the Ministry of Railways has not announced the railway investment for the new year, the industry has already revealed that the railway investment is expected to continue to grow this year. Recently, a railway insider told that the full hydraulic oil will oxidize the coking surface in the long-term work and enter the recovery period of railway construction in 2013. According to the comprehensive analysis of the current situation reflected by various departments and railway bureaus, the fixed investment this year is initially set at about 650billion yuan, of which the infrastructure investment is about 530billion yuan

Wang Mengshu said that the fixed investment in railway this year is about 630billion yuan. The investment in railway infrastructure will be determined according to different regions and lines, generally from March to July, but the investment in infrastructure of some lines will reach 80%

last year, with the opening of Beijing Guangzhou railway and Harbin Dalian railway, China's high-speed railway was basically formed. According to the current plan, many railway projects will enter the year of opening to traffic in 2013. Some of the projects that are expected to open are: Tianjin Baotou railway, Tianjin Qinhuangdao passenger dedicated line, Nanjing Hangzhou high speed railway, Xiamen Shenzhen railway, Xiangpu railway, Liuzhou Nanning intercity railway, Chongqing Lijiang railway, Tianping railway, Shenyang Danzhou passenger dedicated line, Daxi passenger dedicated line, etc

these lines included in the opening scope are mainly concentrated in the middle and East, which also reflects the current pattern of longitudinal hot and transverse cold in the opening of high-speed rail. Compared with the bustle of the opening of the four vertical high-speed rail lines of Beijing Shanghai, Beijing Guangzhou, Beijing Harbin and the southeast coastal passenger dedicated lines in recent years, the opening of the four horizontal high-speed rail lines is relatively deserted

Shen Zhengyuan, a researcher in the transportation industry of CIC consultant, said in an interview with the daily economy: the opening and construction of the four horizontal high-speed railway is relatively slow. At present, some lines of Xulan, Shanghai Kunming, Qingdao Taiyuan and Shanghai Wuhan Chengdu high-speed railway have been officially started, such as Hefei Wuhan railway and Dazhou Chengdu Railway of Shanghai Wuhan Chengdu Passenger Dedicated Line; Hangzhou Changsha passenger dedicated line of Shanghai Kunming passenger dedicated line; Zhengzhou Xi'an Passenger Dedicated Line of Xulan passenger dedicated line; Shijiazhuang Taiyuan Passenger Dedicated Line of Qingdao Taiyuan Passenger Dedicated Line, etc

according to official estimates, the Shanghai Kunming high-speed railway is expected to be completed and opened to traffic in 2015, the Lanzhou Xinjiang high-speed railway is planned to be completed in 2014, and the Guiyang Guangzhou high-speed railway will comprehensively promote the construction of clean and civilized production in 2008, which is expected to be completed within six years

Wang Mengshu said that in terms of funding for high-speed rail construction this year, in addition to ensuring high-speed rail connectivity between provinces, the focus will also be on ensuring high-speed rail construction projects in the West. After the high-speed railway connecting the northwest and southwest with central and southern China, the time from Southwest China to Beijing is expected to be shortened to about 8 hours

the focus will be on ensuring the investment in Western railways

according to the "China railway transportation industry investment analysis and prospect forecast report" previously released by CIC consultants, China will fully realize the pattern of four horizontal and four vertical high-speed railways in the future, which means that the focus will be on increasing the construction of high-speed railways in the western region

at present, railway construction funds mainly come from several sources: direct investment of central government funds, railway self owned funds, investment of local governments through provincial and ministerial cooperation, railway bonds, private capital investment and railway loans. However, for the Ministry of railways, which has a debt of more than 2trillion, the difficulty of financing has always been the bottleneck of railway construction. In 2013, if the railway infrastructure investment in China's plastic extruder market continues to grow, whether the investment in the western region can be in place will still be the focus of attention

according to the local feedback data, the investment in high-speed rail in western provinces is increasing. In 2013, Yunnan high-speed railway construction plans to invest 10.7 billion yuan, including 6.7 billion yuan for Yunnan Guangxi railway and 4 billion yuan for Shanghai Kunming passenger dedicated line, which is much higher than the investment plan of 9.4 billion yuan in 2012

some railway industry insiders said that there are both popular and unpopular railway lines in railway construction. For example, Yunnan and Guizhou are located in mountains, and the Qinghai Tibet Plateau has huge construction costs due to factors such as high temperature and frozen soil. The investment in these lines is basically unprofitable, so capital rarely patronizes, but these railways can connect the southwest, northwest and central and eastern parts, thus forming a whole. Therefore, although the economic benefits of these railways are insignificant, But the social benefits are immeasurable

Wang Mengshu said that at present, the main way to introduce social funds is the coal transportation special line, but although some lines in the southwest region are difficult to have a profit prospect, the state should still ensure to repair these lines, because the high-speed rail link is conducive to promoting the circulation of people and logistics in the central and western regions, forming the complementary advantages of the central and western regions, and the industrial structure adjustment will bring new changes, which is also conducive to narrowing the gap between cities in China. This part of the line can only rely on loans from the Ministry of railways. If the State supports it more, it will certainly be better

With the rapid development of Internet, Shen Zheng also believes that the combination of the Western high-speed railway and the central and Eastern high-speed railway will inevitably connect the core urban circle in the eastern, central and western regions of China, thereby promoting the high-speed circulation of business flow, passenger flow, capital flow and information flow. Not only is the distance between the eastern, central and western cities closer, but the efficiency of population flow will also be greatly improved. The rapid flow of population will inevitably bring about the rapid flow of funds, information and commodities between cities, and ultimately promote the effective allocation of resources in the whole society and stimulate the economic development of Western China
