The Xiamen-Shenzhen high-speed railway would start trials at the end of next year, yesterday’s Shenzhen Economic Daily reported.

It was still not known when the railway would open, an unidentified official from Fujian Province’s key projects administration said Tuesday.

Construction of the high-speed railway was progressing despite incurring financial difficulty after the Wenzhou rail crash in July, the official said.

The 502-kilometer railway would link Shenzhen and Xiaman in Fujian Province. Major cities along the way include Zhangzhou, Chaozhou, Puning, Shantou, Shanwei and Huizhou.

Meanwhile, two other railways in Fujian — Longyan-Xiamen and Xiangtang-Putian — would also start trials next year.

The Ministry of Railways paid nearly 6 billion yuan (US$944 million) to China South Locomotive & Rolling Stock Corp. Ltd. recently to ease financial difficulty for the electric locomotive manufacturer. More payments would be made in November and December.

However, Fujian Province said the construction of railway projects in the province would not be affected by a lack of funding.
