Speeds, prices cut on high-speed trains

Passengers board a high-speed train at Tianjin railway station on Tuesday. The high-speed trains from Beijing to Tianjin will slow from 350 kilometers per hour to 300km/h, accompanied by a 5 percent decrease in ticket prices, from Aug 16. A one-way run between the two municipalities is thus cut from 33 minutes to 30 and a second-class ticket is sold at 55 yuan ($8.61) from 58 yuan. The State Council has made the decision to slow the speed of high-speed trains on tracks across the country after a severe train crash in Wenzhou, East China's Zhejiang province, on July 23.
