The diagram shows the total length of high-speed train track (in kilometres) three countries in 1990,2020 and the projection for 2030. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.
The given table illustrates the total length of high-speed train track in China, France and Japan in 1990 and 2020, with estimates for 2030. The track length is measured in kilometres.
Overall, a considerable development could be seen in high-speed train track in the span of 30 years and the trend is expected to continue in future. China with no track in the initial period is estimated to develop the largest track among the three counties in future.
Looking at the data for 1990, it is clear that Chinese high-speed train track was not there then. However, Japan had the longest train track of 1200 kilometres and France had only 700 kilometres of train track. Turning to 2020, it is interesting to note that China superseded the other two nations with a train track of 3500 kilometres being constructed, France and Japan having a track length 1000 and 1600 respectively.
The predictions for the 2030 show rising trend in the length of track in all the three countries however in China train track would escalate from 3500 to 12000 the length being approximately 4 times higher and would be 6 higher as compared to the length of tracks predicted in France and Japan.
