The longest railway line with a length of 1,8 thousand km is designed to transport coal from areas of Inner Mongolia in northern China to the eastern provinces of the country. Construction of the line will take about 5 years, the cost of construction is about 20 billion yuan.

Two more lines will be passenger. One of them, 137 km long, will be connected by the city of Datong in Shanxi province and Zhangjiakou province in Hebei province, the second one - 402 km long - will be built in the Tibet Autonomous Region of China.

To promote its research and exploration projects, China will build an airport in Antarctica.

So, the future air harbor will be located near the second Chinese research station "Zhongshan" in the eastern part of the continent.
