交通部部长李小鹏介绍了我国铁路公路网扩张的最新情况。
"By the end of 2017, the total mileage of China's operational railway reached 127,000 kilometers, among which the mileage of high-speed railway was 25,000 kilometers, ranking No. 1 in the world. The total mileage of roads in service was 4.77 million kilometers, among which the mileage of expressway was 136,000 kilometers, also ranking No. 1 in the world."
“到去年年底,我国铁路营运里程已达12.7万公里,其中高铁通车里程2.5万公里,位列世界第一;公路通车总里程477万公里,其中高速公路通车里程13.6万公里,位列世界第一。”
李小鹏表示,交通运输部正研究制定交通强国建设纲要。实现交通强国大体上要分两步走: 第一步,2020到2035年,基本建成交通强国(basically building China's strength in transportation),使我国进入世界交通强国的行列(join the ranks of countries with strong transportation network); 第二步,2036到本世纪中叶,全面建成交通强国(finishing building China into a country with strong transportation network),使我国进入世界交通强国前列(become leading powers in the world in terms of transportation)。 (中国日报网英语点津 马文英)
