Later in September, Hong Kong’s first high-speed train will head for Guangzhou, a port city and industrial power house. Its 200-km-an-hour sprint will finally end in nearby Shenzhen, the crucible of China’s reforms. The high-speed train will cover a short span of 141 km between Hong Kong’s West Kowloon station and Guangzhou South station in 47 minutes flat.
By linking up with Guangzhou, Hong Kong will be physically connected, and integrated, with China’s vast web of high-speed rails. The world’s biggest, and still expanding, steel network of high-speed tracks already covers 25,000 km. Once Hong Kong is connected to the mainland through bullet train, Beijing will be just eight hours and 56 minutes away.
the rail link represents Hong Kong’s firmer economic and people-to-people integration into the mainland. However, Chinese planners have made it plain that closer Hong Kong-mainland ties will not infringe the “one-country-two systems” political formula, which guarantees the island’s distinct identity, autonomous business-friendly rules and unique laws of governance.
Inauguration of the Zhuhai-Hong Kong-Macau bridge later this year is also a much-awaited event on China’s 2018 calendar. This mega project will expand the mainland’s connectivity with the former British and Portuguese colony. The 56 km bridge has been built to withstand super-typhoons, a magnitude s8 earthquake, as well as hits by supersized cargo ships.
A 6.7 km underground sea tunnel to allow uninterrupted flow of shipping above, along the super-busy Pearl River Delta, is also part of the bridge’s design. In the end, it will cut the travel time between the three cities from three hours to just 30 minutes.
Chinese planners aim to bring Hong Kong and Macau closer to the mainland through better rail and road links. They also believe the connectivity will act as a boost for the Belt and Road initiative
Apart from an expected surge in business, an exponential rise in tourism is also anticipated. The number of visitors to Macau, known for its dense concentration of glitzy casinos and night life, is expected to spiral. In Zhuhai, fresh infrastructure is cropping within its leafy surroundings for family tourism to bloom. China’s ambitious connectivity projects are fusing into its much larger plan to establish a regional Greater Bay Area (GBA). That would mean seamless integration of 11 major cities in China’s coastal Guangdong province with neighbouring Hong Kong and Macau. As a result, the giant GBA of 68 million people will rival the San Francisco Bay Area of the U.S., as well as the Tokyo Bay Area of Japan.
China’s mandarins say that the once the GBA takes root, it will boost President Xi Jinping’s signature Belt and Road connectivity initiative for Eurasia. “Hong Kong, as one of the major international financial centres, has advantages in a wide range of areas, including investment, risk assessment, finance, insurance, accounting, legal services and arbitration,” says Jin Liqun, head of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB).
The former British colony — a global financial centre as well as a world class port — can also pitch-in with badly needed funds to develop infrastructure in the Belt and Road space. “Hong Kong’s capability in allocating global financial resources could help reduce the bottleneck of financing for these projects,” Chen Siqing, president of the Bank of China, has been quoted as saying.
Yet, funding gaps could still remain as a massive $1.5 trillion per year may be required to cover the costs of infrastructure development to fulfill Mr. Xi’s soaring Belt and Road dreams.

he train service seeks to revive steam locomotive as well as throw light on these historical towns
In a move that could give a fillip to tourism in the Gurugram district, the Northern Railways on Saturday flagged off a special heritage train that will run between Farrukhnagar and Garhi Harsaru, 11 kilometres from the city.
The train service seeks to revive steam locomotive as well as throw light on these historical towns.
train service will use the BG Steam Locomotive WP 7200 that goes by the popular name of Azad, said RK Rana, PRO, Northern Railwayss.
“Till now, the normal train service used to run only six days a week. From now, the train will be run by a steam engine on Sundays. The cost of one way journey would be Rs 10. The steam engine, Azad, was revived recently, and has been used in several film shoots in the past,” Rana said.
Rana added that the launch of the stream locomotive running train, that will cover a stretch of 11 kilometre, would add to the awareness about the towns as well as boost tourism in the area.
“We are hopeful that the train service will revive interest in the historically rich towns of Farrukhnagar and Garhi Harsaru. We are expecting tourists from the country and abroad to visit the area. The Farrukhnagar railway station of Northern Railways, built in 1873, is also historically important,” Rana said.
The train service will run on a route whose history goes beyond that of the two towns. Peppered with historical structures such as the Shish Mahal and Dilli Darwaja that go back at least 300 years, Farrukhnagar is an important contributor to the pool of heritage sites within the ambit of Gurugram district. The area around the town used to be rich in salt, which was naturally produced from around 300 salt wells.
Garhi Harsaru is also home to colonial structures. The railway station at Garhi Harsaru itself is a heritage structure, say experts.
“The track between Farrukhnagar and Garhi Harsaru is widely believed to be the world’s oldest commercial metre gauge. A few years back, it was converted into broad gauge,” Subrata Nath, executive director (heritage), Indian Railways, said.
The train service was inaugurated in the presence of chairman, railway board, Ashwani Lohani. Lohani had earlier visited Farrukhnagar in March where he had first promised the inauguration of the heritage train service.
Heritage experts said that the train service was an innovative attempt and could arouse curiosity about Gururgram’s forgotten towns.
“The launch of this train service is a great opportunity that could add to the heritage awareness and activities in Gurugram district. INTACH has inked an MoU with the railway ministry and we are considering getting in touch with them on a proposal for conducting heritage walks. Heritage walks on the train route would introduce the visitors to the history of the two towns,” Shikha Jain, convener INTACH, Haryana chapter, said.
