Rail net­work to get earth­quake warn­ings

China Daily European Weekly - - News Digest -

China will pro­vide early earth­quake warn­ings for its high-speed rail­way net­work within three years to re­duce the threat to the world’s long­est rail net­work, which trans­ports more than 1 bil­lion pas­sen­gers a year. The China Earth­quake Ad­min­is­tra­tion and China Rail­way Corp signed an agree­ment on Oct 23 to be­gin a trial that aims to bring the coun­try’s high­speed rail­ways into the na­tional earth­quake early warn­ing sys­tem, a state­ment from the ad­min­is­tra­tion said. A pi­lot run will be con­ducted be­fore the early warn­ing ser­vice is of­fi­cially in op­er­a­tion, it said.
