China plans to construct the high-speed Rail from Moscow to Beijing a total investment of 1.5 trillion yuan



Beijing's Municipal Government says it's going to ask for permission to build a high-speed passenger railway linking the Chinese capital to the Russian capital, Moscow.
Beijing's municipal information office says the new high-speed link would cut the train trip between Beijing and Moscow to just two days.Right now it takes a week to travel by train between Beijing and Moscow.

Beijing authorities say the project will cost around 250-billion US dollars.The new line would pass through Kazakhstan, rather than the current link to the Trans-Siberian railway, which connects through Mongolia.
