China Plans 8,000-Mile High-Speed MagLev Railway Linking Beijing to US East Coast
China is considering a plan to build an 8,000-mile (13,000-km) high-speed magnetic levitation railway from Beijing to the eastern seaboard of the United States.
The state-owned Beijing Times reports the rail line would begin in Beijing and run northeastward through Siberia, Russia before tunneling through the Bering Strait into Alaska and then proceeding in a southeasterly direction across Canada and into the northeastern United States.
The trip would take approximately two days at an average speed of 220 miles per hour (354 km/h), and it would require the digging of a 125-mile (200-km) undersea tunnel to cross the Bering Strait between Russia and Alaska. That’s four times the length of the Channel Tunnel linking Britain and France.
