Workers lay down tracks for the Shijiazhuang-Wuhan high speed rail in Xuchang, Central China's Henan province, Nov 29, 2010. Construction work on the Xuchang section of the 840 km railway began on Monday. The whole line will be finished at the end of 2011, connecting two capital cities - Shijiazhuang of North China's Hebei province and Wuhan of Central China's Hubei province. It is designed to reach a speed of 350 kilometers per hour, cutting the running time between Xuchang and its neighboring city Zhengzhou, more than 80 kilometers in distance, to a few minutes.
