BEIJING - Railway traffic during China's seven-day National Day holiday hit record high with over 70 million passengers, statistics from the China Railway Corporation showed on Monday.

On Monday, the last day of the Golden Week, railways across the country are scheduled to carry 8.5 million passengers, according to the company.

Some trains running through the southeastern coastal areas were suspended to ensure passenger safety following the landing of Typhoon Fitow.

Three more bullet trains have been arranged by the Nanchang Railway Bureau to meet passengers' traffic needs on Monday, according to railway authorities.
