Railway construction in the Yangtze River Delta region in 2009 seems more "brisk." Following the investment of 34.67 billion yuan in railway construction last year, the Shanghai Railway Bureau plans to invest up to 60 billion yuan in railway construction in the Yangtze River Delta region this year, equivalent to an average investment of 150 million yuan per day.
The investment will be a major driving force to "boost domestic demand and promote growth" in the economy’s "chilly winter." The objective of "smooth flow of both passengers and goods” by railway transport is expected to be achieved after persistent efforts over the next four years.
