China's high-speed rail network is set to exceed 10,000 km in length as the government is planning to add 3,500 km more during 2012.

Travel time between Beijing and Shenzhen, a key business hub in southern Guandong province, will be reduced from 23 hours to eight hours after the high-speed line between the two cities becomes operational.
