"The Morning Briefing" is SmartPlanet's daily roundup of must-reads from the web. This morning we're reading about high-speed transport.

1.) China tests high-speed snow train. A high-speed railway that can run at nearly 220mph in temperatures of -40C has begun a trial operation in China, ahead of a launch at the end of the year.

2.) £1.3bn for those living on high-speed rail route is 'attempt to buy off critics'. Opponents of high-speed links between London and Birmingham have condemned a new compensation deal.

3.) High-speed rail link for airports urged. Policy advisers and traffic experts have suggested building a high-speed railway to link the city's two airports and better integrate public transport in Hongqiao, an emerging business district.

4.) Rating Italy's high-speed trains: Frecciarossa vs. Italo. Right now, Italy is Europe's cutting-edge country when it comes to high-speed trains.

5.) New high-speed rail service from the UK to the Alps. A new partnership between Eurostar and Lyria, a high-speed Swiss train operator, brings us a day-long journey from London to Switzerland offered every Saturday from December 22 to April 13.
