Abstract

High-speed rail (HSR) acts as a prominent role in society, particularly in urban areas. It implied on socio-economic dynamics and economic growth due to the connectivity. This study conducts the successful case studies of HSR service to analysis on the accessibility of a region and, its effects on urbanisation. Based on the positive impacts of HSR, the land pricing and population dynamic are concerned with primary factors. This research aims to examine the significance of HSR impacts and its roles in reforming urban areas. Therefore, the study brings out a case study of HSR in China (Shanghai and Minhang district) to analysis via the analysis of variance (ANOVA) methods to find a correlation of HSR services with population dynamics and property prices. Also, the Durblin-Watson statistic and Remedial measurement method are applied to eliminate the disturbance of auto-correlation. As a result, the research found that HSR significantly increased an employment rate and, it also leads to enhancing property prices especially within 5 km radius from HSR stations.
