China was one of the first countries to build up a system of bullet trains for a travel trip. Bullet trains are extremely high-speed trains, with a speed of 240–320 kph. Japan invented this super-fast train.
On the eve of the 2022 Winter Olympics, China is all set to inaugurate a bullet train. The train is running from cities of Beijing to the city of Zhangjiakou.
However, the high -speed bullet train, is expected to reduce the travel time from 3 hours to 47 minutes from and to Beijing and Zhangjiakou. These cities are the ones in which most of the events of the Winter Olympics 2020 will be held. It is also believed that this bullet train will be the first one of its type to run on its own. Though there will be a driver on board in case of any mishaps, the speed of the train is even more astounding; the highest rate of the train will be 350 kph.

The construction of this entire infrastructure took more than 4years to build, according to the reports of CNN. This will simultaneously conjoin Beijing, yan qing, and Zhangjiakou.
