BEIJING, April 9 (Xinhua) -- Fixed-asset investment in China's railways expanded 6.6 percent in the first quarter of this year, amid the country's efforts to build a modern railway infrastructure system, according to industry data.

Total fixed-asset railway investment came in at 113.55 billion yuan (about 16.5 billion U.S. dollars), data from China State Railway Group Co., Ltd. showed.

During this period, the track-laying work for the main lines of three high-speed railways was completed, the group said, adding that breakthroughs had been made in a number of key projects under construction.
