North-South Express Railway
There is a plan to modernise the current North-South Railway of Vietnam with a express railway. The speed of the new railway hasn’t been determined yet, but the new railway will be a vast improvement for connectivity to Hue.
The current railway is slow and only offers a few options per day. Hue to Danang takes 2h 30m to cover 103.3 km, while the quickest train from Hue to Hanoi takes 14h 30m to travel 689.5 km.
The proposed speeds of the North-South Express Railway range from 160km/h up to 350 km/h.
A high-speed railway with a top speed of 300km/h and an average speed of 250km/h would reduce the trip to Hanoi to 2h 45m. The trip to Danang would be reduced to under 30 minutes, making Danang a commutable city from Hue.
Even the slowest proposal of 160 km/h with an average speed of 120 km/h would make the Hue-Hanoi trip a reasonable 5h 45m, and Hue to Danang in about 50 minutes. These calculations use the current railway lengths, which will be shortened by bridges and tunnels on the new railway, so the travel times will be quicker.
A 4-line tramway has been proposed for the city of Hue.
