Construction is under way of the world’s deepest high-speed railway station, and it will be built underneath the Great Wall of China.
In preparation for the 2022 Winter Olympics, China is building the line to connect the capital city of Beijing to the skiing town of Zhangjiakou, host cities for the games.
Engineers have designed a route that goes through the mountains, runs parallel to the Great Wall at times, and at the Badaling section of the wall, workers are building a massive underground station.
