Bullet Train Speed Increase

China plans to increase the speed of its bullet trains to 350km/h. The trains are designed to travel this quickly, but Beijing ordered that the speed be reduced to between 250km/h and 300km/h several years ago. The government plans to implement this change in September, which will decrease the travel time between Beijing and Shanghai from six hours to only four and a half hours.
