At the end of June 2022, the aggregated mileage data of high-speed railways in China is about 42,000 kilometers (unofficial statistical ). If the lines with speeds of 200 kilometers per hour and below are not included, the mileage of high-speed railways is about 36,000 kilometers, and the proportion of quasi-high-speed railways with speeds of 250-350 kilometers per hour is about 86%. In view of the regional differences between eastern and western China, the western region mainly builds passenger and freight trains with a speed of 200 kilometers per hour and below, with a small proportion of high-speed railways, mainly running existing line EMUs, and the area of each province and urban area is quite different. , the mileage rankings are only comparable in the central and eastern provinces and coastal provinces.
In June 2022, with the opening of the Xiangwan section of the Zhengyu high-speed railway and the Puzheng section of the Jizheng high-speed railway, China will add 629 kilometers of high-speed railways (934 kilometers of high-speed railways have been opened during the year). The mileage of high-speed railways in Hubei and Henan provinces exceeded 2,000 kilometers, and the mileage of high-speed railways in Chongqing exceeded 1,000 kilometers.
At present, the mileage of high-speed railways in 9 provinces in China has exceeded 2,000 kilometers. The mileage of high-speed rail in the top ten provinces is basically similar, with an average mileage of around 2,200 kilometers. Guangdong, Anhui, and Jiangsu are temporarily in the top three, and the other provinces are: Shandong, Liaoning, Hunan, Jiangxi, Henan, Hubei, and Fujian.
