As City centres all over China

..........becomes dense in population. We do expect severe traffic congestion as seen in Tokyo, Osaka, Hong Kong, Singapore. Please remember, such city centres has up to 10,000/km2 population!

China is expected to have up to 300 million people housed in dense city centres by year 2030! (much like Chongqing, Shenzen, Shanghai, Beijing today). The citizens will be expected to own a car, but would be more likely to use PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION like the MASS RAPID TRANSIT (electric), LIGHT RAPID TRANSIT (electric) and LNG/electric BUS. (this should hack off 25% of the total milleage off PRIVATE AUTOMOBILE transportation needs)

On the other hand, due to FUEL TAX, HIGH PETROLEUM PRICES - we expect to develop FREIGHT ELECTRIC RAIL, which is highly efficient to reduce reliance of LONG DISTANCE PRIME MOVERS by year 2030. The freight rail would be powered by cheaper electricity using coal, hydro-kinetic energy! (Hopefully, with a computerized system - it can hack off 50% of the PRIME MOVER, DIESEL LOCOMOTIVE fuel use in logistics).

cheerios!

Building dense city, 10,000 citizen/km2

........will see increase needs for MRT, or other electric driven transportation systems.!

cheerios!

Electric powered Container Freight mover

...........will reduce the consumption of diesel, and use of long distant haulier's Prime Movers.

This requires a computerized system, double or triple tracking PURE ELECTRIFIED RAIL system. The platform Container mover would have it's own drive motors, and it's controlled by onboard computers communicating with "rail control rooms".

This will make it obsolete the FREIGHT DIESEL locomotive, while EFFICIENCY, cost competitiveness (hydro electric, thermal coal electric will be less costly compared to diesel fueled locomotives!) will encourage businesses to use AUTOMATED RAIL system to do their logistics. This is especially true between major city hubs of >500,000 citizens to 20 million citizens!

cheerios!

Electric street cars for dense city centres

.........but this could cause congestions for the roads now pack with TAXIS and BUSES (lLNG or electric).

Probably PEDESTRIAN MOVING WALKWAYS.
Now Kuala Lumpur is implementing the "Hong Kong style" COVERED AIR CONDITIONED PEDESTRIAN WALKWAY to encourage more pedestrian traffic in dense City Centres.

Cheerios!

The Rural citizens, whether farmers or rural service

.............career citizens will find "diesel powered" trucks, pick ups useful and fuel efficient.

Diesel fuel has a bigger calorific value and nominally needs bigger engine capacities. However the need for clean burning engines technology is great as diesel fueled vehicles can be very polluting if not well maintained and not fitted with the latest in modern automotive technology. Fuel saved from Prime movers, City Busses will well be used by TRUCKS, pick ups, and Vans.

Cheerios!

It is a scary thought to see Chinese driving these big pickups.

Diesel trucks are fuel efficient.

..........in fact the kerb weight for the standard popular model in Malaya, the Toyota Hilux diesel truck is 1.3 Tonnes.

The fuel consumption is quite good, >10km per litre of diesel!

However for URBAN courier, light weight transport - it would be good to use ELECTRIC VANS.
Non polluting in the urban enviroment (transfer the pollutants to the outskirts power plants).

Cheerios!
