Board of Works

The Board of Works has unveiled a comprehensive 10-year (2020-2030) framework for the Zhen-sponsored redevelopment of the Korean state:

Projected High Speed Rail (Dalian-Pyongyang)
[img]placeholder[/img]

The Dalian-Pyongyang high-speed rail line (DP-HSR) is a dual-track, electrified, high-speed rail line. It runs from Shenyang to Dandong, where it connects to the Pyongui Line and the Pyongbu Line.

Cost $9 billion USD
Distance 682.3 km
Origin Dalian Railway Station
Destination Pyongyang Station (Korean State Railway)
Stations/Stops 3 (Shenyang, Sinijiu, Pyongyang)
Operational Rolling Stock

    13 HSR rolling stock sets;
    13 CRH380B/BL (8-car)

Electrification 25 kV 50 Hz AC Overhead Line
Max Speed 250 km/h

The Pyongui and Pyongbu Lines require intensive renovations, in order to increase its operating speeds from 100km/h to over 250km/h. Additionally, the Pyongui Line is currently a single-track line - a second track will be laid down to fulfil the dual-track requirements of the DP rail line. The Pyongui and Pyongbu Lines also require upgrades in electrifications, to render it compatible with 25 kV 50 Hz AC Overhead lines.

$300 million USD will be used to renovate 59 of the stations within North Korea's provincial borders. $14.8 million USD will go towards the purchase of 13 sets of 8-car CRH380B/BL rolling stock.

Upon completion (est. date ~3 yrs), trains will run from Dalian to Seoul on 4-hour intervals. A one-way trip from Dalian to Pyongyang will be completed in 2-3 hours.

Industrial Expansion

Under the current redevelopment plans, Zhen companies have pledged to develop the region industrially, by the construction and operation of a variety of heavy and light industrial facilities.
