Chapter 5: Considering the impact of HSR on China’s East Coast region

Qiyan Wu, Anthony Perl, Jingwei Sun, Taotao Deng and Haoyu Hu


Qiyan Wu, Anthony Perl, Jingwei Sun, Taotao Deng and Haoyu Hu explore the development of the high speed rail (HSR) network in China and the associated impact on accessibility, mode choice and spatial structure. Cities that gain intercity connections through HSR have higher accessibility enhancements, such as Huzhou. Daily commuting catchments have increased, thus more cities are absorbed within the commuting catchments of the major cities such as Shanghai and Beijing. The city region expands to the scale of the supercity, representing a new scale of urban development and interaction.
