Brio Train, the first commercial passenger train to enter China, has arrived in Beijing and will begin its first leg on the Shenzhen-Tianjin Railway on Friday.
The company, which aims to be the first Chinese rail company to operate passenger trains through the city, said the first train will run from the Tianjin Railway station in the capital to the western city of Shenzhen on April 11.
The Shenzhen railway is currently the world’s third busiest and is also the largest commercial railway system in China.
Brio’s Beijing-Tianshan Railway has been a mainstay in Beijing for more than three decades, and the company’s aim is to bring a second train through to Shenzhen.
In a statement on its website, the company said the train will travel at a speed of up to 6.5 kilometres per hour (3.8 miles per hour) and will travel a total distance of 1,500km (620 miles).
The first train on the route will be an inaugural one.
The railway will provide Brio with an infrastructure to carry out its operations in China and its people will benefit from the opportunity to travel the world, Brio said.
Brivei train in China Brio and Brive train in IndiaThe Brive trains will operate in China through the Beijing-Hubei Railway, which is one of the largest railway systems in China, the Railway Corporation of China said in a statement.
The first Brive Train, which will operate from Beijing to Hubei, will operate between April 11 and May 14, and then to Shanghai, it added.
China’s railway industry has faced challenges over the past decade and the country is currently struggling with a shortage of skilled workers and infrastructure, especially as China’s population continues to grow.
BRIE Train’s arrival comes just days after China’s top government official and several of his senior aides were arrested on corruption charges.
They are accused of using their positions to promote themselves and gain influence over the Chinese government, according to the South China Morning Post newspaper.
The arrests were made amid the so-called “One Belt, One Road” initiative, which seeks to create a network of economic links between China, Southeast Asia and the United States.
The initiative, launched in 2016, seeks to build a common market, create jobs and boost investment and growth in the region.
The government has been under fire for its handling of the crisis.
A Chinese official said on Friday that the government had not made any official announcement regarding the arrests.
In October, China’s President Xi Jinping said the country’s railway sector will become the main economic engine of the world.
