Yomiuri Shimbun: 北京―上海高速鉄道の車両、生産停止…中国紙
Yasushi Kōuchi reporting from Hong Kong August 9, 2011

Changchun Railway Vehicles Company, a subsidiary of China CNR Corporation which went into business at the end of June and has been manufacturing trains for the Beijing-Shanghai High Speed Rail line, has halted production for safety reasons.

This news was reported in the August 9 edition of the online news magazine Business China.

Of the 96 trains running on the line, 48 were supplied by CNR and the other 48 by CSR.

Of the 38 malfunctions on the line so far, 37 of them were by CNR trains. Because many of those were Changchun trains, the company has halted production, “voluntarily and not because of a government order” in the words of CNR.

北京―上海高速鉄道の車両、生産停止…中国紙

 【香港=幸内康】6月末に開業した北京―上海間の高速鉄道線で運行されている車両のメーカー「中国北車」傘下の企業が、安全面の理由で車両の生産・出荷を停止している。

 9日付の中国紙「21世紀経済報道」が伝えた。

 北京―上海線で運行されている車両96本のうち、北車は48本を供給し、残る48本は別の車両製造大手「中国南車」が供給している。

 これまでに同線で発生した38件の故障のうち37件は北車の車両だった。なかでも傘下企業「長春軌道客車」が生産した車両が多かったため、「鉄道省から停止を命令されたのではなく、自主的に」(北車)出荷停止したという。
