China high speed train

epa03648725 Picture taken with a zoom effect and long exposure 02 April 2013, made available 03 April 2013 shows high speed trains at Zhengzhou railway station, north China. According to state media China has over 9,700 km of high speed train routes with a nationwide grid of 25,000 km slated for completion by 2020. China claims the fastest trains in the world capable of running at 350km/h though a series of accidents in recent years has led to a reduction of top speeds on many routes to around 300km/h. Beijing has restructured the railway industry and the ministry overseeing it in hopes of avoiding further corruption, budget and oversight issues that have plagued it for years. EPA/ADRIAN BRADSHAW
