THSRC says high-speed rail runs late

CAN'T DELIVER Taiwan High Speed Rail Corp announced yesterday that the nation's first bullet-train system has been put on hold by core-system construction problems


The high-speed railway passed a 200kph test drive at the end of last month and is likely to have a successful 300kph test next month, Chia said.

This project marks the first use of Japan's Shinkansen system outside that country as well as the first time Japanese bullet trains have been exported.
