Vossloh has once again been awarded a contract to supply rail fastening systems in connection with the construction of two high-speed lines in China. One of the two lines connects the megacity of Xining with the metropolis of Chengdu, which has developed into the most important economic metropolis in western China alongside Chongqing. The second line runs between Lanzhou, the capital of Gansu province, and the city of Hezuo in the south-east of the province.
