HARBIN, Aug. 19 (Xinhua) - The China Railway Harbin Group Co., Ltd. conducted a trial operation Thursday morning on a new railway linking the cities of Mudanjiang and Jiamusi in northeast China's Heilongjiang Province.

Located in the easternmost part of China, the 370-km Mudanjiang-Jiamusi high-speed rail line is expected to be ready for operation by the end of September.

The construction of the railway began in November 2016 and the track-laying work was completed in November 2020. With a designed speed of 250 km per hour, there are seven stations along the line.

The operation of the new railway is expected to boost the regional economic and social development.
