Abstract: Proceedings of the Third International Conference on Transportation Engineering, held in Chengdu, China, July 23-25, 2011. Sponsored by China Communications and Transportation Association; the Transportation and Development Institute of ASCE; Mao Yisheng Science and Technology Education Fund. Hosted by the College of Transportation and Logistics, Southwest Jiaotong University. This collection contains 543 peer-reviewed papers that present the most current transportation engineering research. China has embarked on a massive construction program of a high-speed rail network. This network will change the landscape of passenger transportation in China, but it will also alter the global vision of rapid and long distance travel of people and freight. New technologies in planning, design, construction, operation, and management are needed for the new high-speed rail network and many other modes of transportation.
