LONDON, March 27 (Xinhua) -- MTR, the company that runs the Hong Kong metro system, was named on Monday as a partner in a new consortium to run one of the major inter-city rail franchises in Britain.

MTR and rail operator FirstGroup have been awarded a contract to operate one of the busiest rail routes in London, serving towns and cities in the southwest of England.

A new company, First MTR South Western Trains Limited, will use the experience of MTR to deliver smooth and rapid journeys for passengers travelling around London's suburban network, said the Department for Transport (DfT).

It is the first franchise awarded since Secretary of State for Transport Chris Grayling set out his vision for the future of the railways which involves the biggest investment in rail services across Britain since the Victoria era. The contract also marks a new era in work between train operators and Network Rail, said the DfT.

Currently, train operating companies work separately from Network Rail, which is responsible for track and rail infrastructure.

Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said: "First MTR South Western Trains Limited will deliver the improvements that people tell us they want right across the South Western franchise area."

"Faster journeys will be delivered through a consistent fleet of new suburban trains offering a regular, metro-style service. Passengers can look forward to more space, ensuring that the railway can support London's growth."

The company will oversee an investment of more than 1.5 billion U.S. dollars that will improve journeys for millions of train passengers, especially people using commuter routes into London's busy Waterloo station.

As well as thousands of extra seats, a fleet of 90 new trains will provide more space for passengers on routes into London from Reading and Windsor.

There will also be faster journey times from a number of major places such as Southampton, Salisbury and Portsmouth.

The new franchise will run for seven years from Aug. 20, 2017 when MTR and FirstGroup take over the route from the current operator. MTR is already involved in running the London Overland railway.

Jeremy Long, who is CEO of MTR's European operation, said: "MTR is known across the world for the excellent quality of its rail services, and we look forward to working with FirstGroup to provide a best-in-class travel experience for passengers in London and the South West. Together we will deliver a major program of upgrades, including improvements to both rail services and customer experience, for passengers travelling across the South Western network."

WASHINGTON, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said Wednesday he's "optimistic" that his agency can work together with China eventually in the area of human spaceflight, despite a ban by the U.S. Congress on space cooperation between the two countries.

"I am optimistic because we do work with China, we work collaboratively with them with Congressional knowledge Saldi Uomo Nike Air Max Classic BW Nere Bianche Scarpe ," Bolden said, citing collaborative research with the Chinese Academy of Sciences in the field of Earth science, including geodetics and glacial characterization in the Himalaya region.

"In the area of human spaceflight, I think it will come in time Donne Nike Air Max 90 Pelle Scarpe Bianche Italia , ... but be patient," he told an event hosted by the Center for American Progress, a Washington-based think tank, noting that it might "take a generational change" for that to happen.

Bolden refused to directly criticize the China partnership ban Donne Nike Air Max 1 Ultra Essential Bianche Online , first introduced in 2011 by Frank Wolf, then-chairman of the House Appropriations subcommittee that funds NASA, only saying that "no one can say what will happen in the Congress."

Earlier this week, Wolf's House successor Uomo Nike Air Max 1 Scarpe Bianche Italia , John Culberson, slammed the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for its recent participation in a State Department-led meeting in Beijing on bilateral U.S.-China civil space cooperation.

"NASA has failed to provide the committee with details on the depth and scope of the meetings hosted by the Department of State," alleged Culberson in a statement to space news site SpacePolicyOnline, while vowing to "vigorously enforce" the ban.
