By China Daily | China Daily | Updated:2016-12-27 07:32A maglev train for Beijings new S1 line on Sunday. The maglev line is expected to start operation by the end of next year. Cheng Gong / For China DailyBeijings first rail line using magnetic levitation technology is scheduled to start running next year, with engineers now testing the new trains, city officials announced on Sunday.The overhead maglev line, named S1, will run in the west, from Shijingshan districts Pingguoyuan to Shimenying in the mountainous Mentougou district. It will stretch about 10 kilometers and have eight stations.The travel time between the two locations, currently connected only by bus, will be cut by two-thirds to just 20 minutes, according to an anonymous official from the Beijing Major Projects Construction Office quoted by Beijing Daily.”It will take only the time it takes to eat a fast-food meal to travel the entire line,” he said. “Plus, the maglev train is more stable, quieter and better at climbing hills compared with normal trains.”Once finished, S1 will connect with the subways Line 1 and the western extension of Line 6, which is under construction.Built in neighboring Hebei province, the first maglev train was delivered to the capital on Dec 16. According to officials, the line will have 10 trains, each with a capacity of 1,000 passengers.The line will make scenic spots in Beijings western suburbs more easily accessible to residents and tourists.”As much as I enjoy the serenity there, it takes me about two hours by bus to go to Tanzhe and Jietai temples in Mentougou,” said Liu Bo, 25, who lives in the city. “When the new line opens, I can go to the temples more often.”Its been a while since the work began, so all I hope now is that it opens soon.”Construction on S1 began in 2011 after months of debate, with public fears raised about potential radiation. However, experts have dismissed such concerns.”The line employs closed magnetic field technology that elevates the train about 1 centimeter above the track to reduce friction. It leaks no magnetic influence outside the controlling red line distance, therefore it wont affect nearby residents,” Li Jie, chief engineer of the maglev project, told Beijing Daily.”As for passengers inside the train, as the radiation is non-ionizing like radio waves, its neither accumulative nor harmful. At most, passengers may feel a bit warmer.”Although rare compared with conventional subway trains, maglev trains are not new to China. A high-speed maglev service has run from Shanghais Pudong International Airport to downtown Longyang Road since 2002. Trains travel at up 430 km per hour.A medium-to-low speed maglev line that uses similar technology to Beijings S1 also opened in May between central Changsha, capital of Hunan province, and the citys international airport. PhotoThe stories that made our yearStudents create huge rooster-shaped snow figure to welcome the New YearPenguins from Harbin Polarland try ice slideRadiating courage: Doctors who brave radiation to save patientsInjury and pain behind glitz and glamour of citiesMao Zedongs profound impact on ChinaLatestTaiwan independence biggest threat to peace, stability in the Straits: spokespersonTibetan water to reach inland China by charter trainBoao Airport to resume operationShanghai mulls regulation on social credit systemChina breeds first transgenic tree shrewState Council NewsGeneral public have their say on governmentFlood-control tools urged to be improved during State Council meetingExclusiveYear in Review: Policies changing our livesYear in Review: Chinas giant steps in sci-techNew season, new look: Changing landscape of ChinaEditors picksChina plans toilet revolution to boost tourismThe stories that made our yearTen photos you dont wanna missTen photos from around China: Dec 16 – 22SpecialBattle against povertyShenzhou XI: New frontiers, new milestoneBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
