China will restore the maximum speed of 350 kilometers per hour with the Fuxing Revival bullet train between Beijing and Shanghai starting on September 21, China Railway Co announced on Sunday.

The new speed will be the fastest in the world and will reportedly cut the travel time between Beijing and Shanghai by half an hour to 4.5 hours.

The speed rise comes six years after the maximum speed was reduced to 300 kilometers per hour in 2011 following a fatal accident, indicating that officials have full confidence in the safety of the new bullet train.

The Fuxing bullet train is designed to run as fast as 400 kilometers per hour.
