Chinese press agencies have reported that the proposed Maglev scheme between Shanghai and Hangzhou has been put on ice due to a large number of complaints. The 175km line was due to be completed by 2010, with trains travelling at up to 450km/h. The prime problem is thought to be the 'green belt' required around the track. German design specications required 300m clearance either side. The Chinese route allowed only 22.5m.
