According to CRRC Zhuzhou Locomotive Co Ltd, a review committee has approved a plan for developing the maglev train and support facilities.

Design and construction will begin immediately, said Zhou Qinghe, chairman of the company.

A sample carriage will be built in 2019, and test runs are expected to be completed by 2021.

CRRC Zhuzhou has built 100 km/h maglev trains that have been running in China's central province of Hunan for two years.
