China is discussing the possibility of building a high-speed railway line in the United States and Canada

The PRC is discussing the possibility of building a high-speed railway line through Siberia and the Bering Strait to Alaska and through Canada to the United States. According to Xinhua News Agency, the train trip from China to the United States is not a very distant future.

The proposed railway will begin in northeastern China and cross Russia to the Bering Strait, under which an underwater tunnel will be dug to Alaska. From Alaska the line will run through Canada to its final destination - the territory of the United States. To cross the Bering Strait, approximately 200 km of an underwater tunnel will be required, the same technology will be used in the construction of a high-speed railway tunnel between China's Fujian province and Taiwan.

The entire development of the project, the details of which are still under discussion, is assumed by China.

If such a railway is built, passengers will receive an alternative to air traffic. When driving at an average speed of 350 km / h, the path length of 13000 km will take less than two days.
