China's domestic railway system is expected to grow by 30,000 kilometres before 2020 and one-third will consist of high-speed rail, according to the country's Ministry of Transport.

Speaking at a press conference held by the State Council Information Office on Monday, Minister of Transport Li Xiaopeng added the road network will be expanded by 320,000 kilometres during the 13th Five-Year Plan period (2016-2020).

The country will also build more than 300 shipping berths above the level of 10,000 DWT (deadweight tonnage), in addition to 50 civil airports.

According to the comprehensive plan for the development of transportation, total investment in transportation during the 13th Five-Year Plan period will be as much as 15 trillion yuan (US$2.18 trillion); up to three-quarters of that amount will go toward railways and roads.

Railway investment in 2017 alone is expected to reach 800 billion yuan (US$116 billion).
By 2020, China will have built a comprehensive modern transportation system that is safe, convenient, efficient and green.
