Jiang­men, Guang­dong Prov­ince. The Shen­zhen- Maom­ing high- speed rail­way is un­der con­struc­tion. The main con­struc­tion for a fully en­closed sound bar­rier de­signed by the China Rail­way Siyuan Sur­vey and De­sign Group ( here­inafter re­ferred to as “SIYUAN”) was com­pleted in De­cem­ber of 2017. The sound bar­rier runs 2.03 kilo­me­ters in length and is spe­cially de­signed for the “Birds’ Par­adise” 800 me­ters away from the rail. It’s the world’s first fully en­closed sound bar­rier for a high-speed rail.

On De­cem­ber 15, we went to the con­struc­tion site in the district of Xin­hui in Jiang­men City of Guang­dong Prov­ince. Peer­ing from afar, an arched cor­ri­dor about 20 me­ters tall over the rail sat over the rail—this was the fully en­closed sound bar­rier.

Over­spend­ing 187 mil­lion yuan, more than 40,000 sound pan­els have been con­structed to avoid dis­turb­ing the birds with the noise from pass­ing trains
