As Beijing plans to build a new railway line that would link a city on the outskirts of Beijing with the rest of the country, there are few obstacles in its path.
And there are many that China will have to overcome before it even begins construction.
For instance, China has not completed the rail network that connects Beijing to its vast inland provinces.
The railway, which is a major transportation project, is slated to run through about 10,000 square miles (22,000 sq km) of China’s landmass.
Its length is estimated at 6,000 kilometers (3,300 miles), making it the largest road project in history.
In the near term, the new railway is expected to take more than four decades to complete.
And the project is expected by Chinese officials to take years to complete, given the country’s relatively low level of investment.
So how will China’s rail project play out?
The government has pledged to construct the entire network by 2035, a timetable that China says is unrealistic given its relatively low investment level.
China has been trying to build new rail lines since the early 1990s, and it has built the first major highway in the world — the Shanghai-Tianjin-Hebei Belt Link — in 2003.
But China has also been working to modernize its rail network.
The state-owned China National Railway is one of the biggest and oldest railways in the country.
It’s been the subject of extensive scrutiny from U.S. and European officials who have been trying for years to prevent a repeat of the debacle that occurred in the 1980s and 1990s when China was unable to build its first high-speed rail line.
The government also has been pressing for the rail lines to be extended into the countryside, where the majority of the population lives.
China’s new rail plan, which the government hopes to complete in 2021, is expected have a lower level of congestion, which would help it ease the pressure on existing rail lines.
The railway line between Beijing and Tianjin is expected also to take longer.
But it has already taken four decades, and the government is still working on building a new line.
The new line is expected not only to be more comfortable to use, but to provide better access to the capital and to other major cities.
China has built many roads and other public transportation infrastructure in the past, but its rail line is its biggest and most ambitious infrastructure project.
The government says it will also create more than 1,500 jobs in the rail industry, which will create thousands of new jobs.
It has promised to create nearly 10 million jobs by 2025.
The rail project is one example of China building infrastructure with little or no public investment, despite the country having more than a billion people.
But that’s only the tip of the iceberg.
