According to the Propaganda document to spread the idea of Lao - Chai Railway project (ເອກະສານໂຄສະນາເຜີຍແຜ່ນຳພາແນວຄິດກ່ຽວກັບໂຄງການກໍ່ສ້າງທາງລົດໄຟລາວ-ຈີນ), we got the following vital information about Lao - China Railway
1. It will be standard gauge single track
2. the steepness on the plateau section is 12 in 1000 while the steepness on the hill section will be 24 in 1000 just like Dong Phraya yen section (Kaeng Khoi - Pak Chong)
3. the minimum radius on the plateau section is 2000 meters while the minimum radius on the hill section is 1600 meters
4. th design will be according to geographic section - which has to be separated into 2 sections
4.1. Boten - Vangvieng (Steep hill section) Max Speed at 160 kph for passenger trains while 120 kph for cargo trains
4.2. Vangvieng - viengchan capital A(plateau section) Max Speed at 200 kph for passenger trains while 120 kph for cargo trains
5. Designed for cargo train of 3000 tons in the inital stage and 4000 tons in the long term
6. Chinese government Invests 70% and Lao government invests 30% - both parties will have to pay 40% of their investment for intial capital - effectively Chinese invests 28% of total capital while Lao government invests 12%
which is 730 Million US Dollars. At the time being, Lao government invest the first 50 Million US Dollars while borrowing form Chinese EXIM Bank until they can pay all 5956 Million US Dollars project prices in 35 years
7. Lao - China Railway consisted of 175.59 km of elevated tracks (41.10%) 170 bridges with total distance of 69.20 km (15.80%) including 2 Major bridge across Mekhong at Luang Phrabang, 576 culverts and draining pipe with total distance of 21.60 km and 72 tunnels with total distance of 183.90km (43.07%) including 7 tunnels longer than 7000 meter with the longest one at 9500 meter - Friendship tunnel across Lao - China Border has been excluded though.
8 There will be 33 railway stations even though ONLY 21 stations will be built - 12 will be built later - there will be 4 passenger trains (definitely EMUs) and 14 cargo trains (Locos and wagons includign BCFs)
9. Each station has a track capacity of 23 trains a day - with a hope that once all 33 stations have been opened, the track capacity will be raised to 39 trains a day
9.1 Track capacity of Boten - Mueang Xai - initially 25 trains a day - short term 42 trains a day and long term 42 trains a day
9.2 Track capacity of Mueang Xai - Luang Phrabang - initially 26 trains a day - short term 40 trains a day and long term 40 trains a day
9.3 Track capacity of Luang Phrabang - Vangvieng - initially 25 trains a day - short term 40 trains a day and long term 40 trains a day
9.4 Track capacity of Vangvieng - veingchan capital - initially 23 trains a day - short term 39 trains a day and long term 39 trains a day
9.5 Track capacity of veingchan capital - Friendship binitiall 54 trains a day - short term 54 trains a day and long term 54 trains a day
10. ticket rate - 0.30 Yuan per person per km (350 Kip per person per km or Viang Chan capital - Boten at 140000 Kip per person - cheaper and faster than buses by a half while cargo train tariff is at 0.50 Yuan per ton per km
(600 Kip per ton per km) - or Viang Chan capital - Boten at 140000 Kip per ton - cheaper than going by trucks and 45 hour fasters
11. Need 3000 hectar (18750 Rai) of railway land for track and station yards - with 50 meter wide land strip while the area in fornt of tunnel will be 50 meter wide and 100 meter long while 3 Major stations at Luang Phabang, Vangvieng
and Viengchan capital near National Stadium at km 16 need 500 meter wide and 3000 meter long land for station yards while the mid size stations such as Boten, Na Moh, Muang Nga, and Kasi station will need 200 meter wide and 2000 meter long
land for station yards - so the detrimental effect is unavoidable
12. Lao Government is to isssue 6 polities to support Lao - China railway
12.1. Right of development on Railway land
12.2. Tax exemption and discount
12.3. natural resource tax
12.4. Tax on Imported goods
12.5. feed for leasing the area and the place to stay for foreign workers (definitely Chinese labors)
12.6. All the supports for construction of Lao - China to be finished on time
13. Chinese loan of 480 Million US Dollars at 2.3% rate per annum to pay for that 50 Million US Dollars while the rest will have to borrow at the rate of 3% - Cheap if compared with 4.9% per annum rate forr Chinese railway construction

Construction, consultancy firms sign on for Laos-China railway

http://www.vientianetimes.org.la/Fre...nstruction.htm

Five Chinese construction companies and six consultancy firms have been selected for engagement in the Laos-China Railway Project, with construction expected to start in December.

Agreements with the companies were signed in Vientiane yesterday in the presence of Minister of Public Works and Transport Dr Bounchanh Sinthavong, Chinese Ambassador to Laos Mr Guan Huabing, deputy ministers, provincial governors and other invited guests.

The selection of the construction companies and consultancy firms was conducted by the Laos-China Railway Committee, with the process beginning on July 27. The committee sent letters to the construction companies and consultancy firms setting out the conditions for bidding.

Ten Chinese construction companies and 15 consultancy firms submitted bids, according to a report from the committee.

The committee assessed the bids in Vientiane on August 26 before meeting in Beijing from August 28-31 to evaluate th em.

During the meeting, the committee scrutinised the bids before making their final decision, as approved by the Laos-China Railway Joint Venture Company.

The joint venture company declared the results of the bid to the companies before publicly announcing the winners on September 8.

In another part of the project, about 20 Lao companies will be chosen as sub-contractors for construction work on the railway, which will run from Vientiane to the Chinese border.

These companies must be sub-contracted by Chinese companies, who will supervise their work and provide technical assistance to ensure high quality workmanship.

The US$6 billion railway, to be built over a distance of 427 km, will be completed by 2021, an official in charge said.

The railway will use a 1.435-metre standard-gauge track. There will be 33 stations, 21 of which will be operational initially, according to the Ministry of Public Works and Transport.

There will be 72 tunnels with a total length of 183.9 km, representing 43 percent of the railway's total length. The line will also have 170 bridges totalling 69.2 km in length, accounting for 15.8 percent of the total.

Passenger trains will travel at 160 km per hour, while the speed of rail freight will be 120 km per hour.

The railway in Laos will link with the track in Thailand to form part of the regional rail link known as the Kunming-Singapore railway, covering a total distance of about 3,000km.

An official ground-breaking ceremony for the Laos-China railway took place in Vientiane last December to mark the 40th anniversary of the foundation of the Lao People's Democratic Republic.

The project coincides with the 'One Belt, One Road' initiative of Chinese President Xi Jinping, and will contribute to increased friendly relations and cooperation between Laos and China, and between China and Asean.

The Lao government has highlighted the significance of the railway in transforming Laos from a landlocked country to a land link and attracting more foreign investment and tourists to the country.

The railway will also serve to boost production in Laos, both for export and to spur economic growth.

Construction of China-Laos railway officially commences

Addressing the ceremony, Lao Minister of Public Works and Transport Bounchanh Sinthavong said the development of the railway is of great significance in implementing the resolution of the 10th National Congress of the Lao People's Revolutionary Party (LPRP) and in boosting Lao socio-economy.

The project will help expand and promote Laos-China cooperation in economy, trade, investment and tourism among others, as well as further strengthen economic ties in China-ASEAN free trade area, said the minister.

"Once completed, the railway will benefit Lao people of all ethnic groups, facilitate and reduce costs of transportation, stimulate the development of agricultural and industrial sectors, tourism, investment and trade, as well as generate income for Lao people and the country," he added.

Bounchanh, on behalf of the ministry and the project management committee, expressed the gratitude to China for supports.

Infrastructure construction is the foundation for economic development. China-Laos railway project is a historic milestone in the comprehensive strategic cooperation between Laos and China.

Huang Difu, general manager of China Railway International Co., Ltd and chairman of Laos-China Railway Company, said the China-Laos railway is a major strategic project.

After the ground-breaking ceremony on Dec. 2, 2015, governments and businesses of China and Laos have closely coordinated to complete the formation of Laos-China Railway Company and sign agreements on concession period of the railway.

Meanwhile, work on preliminary design, project bidding, imports of material and equipment, land clearance among other preparations have gained initial results, said Huang.

"Following the consensus reached by leaders of the two countries as well as the preparatory situation of the project, it is now the time to officially begin construction of the railway," Huang added.

China-Laos railway is an important part of the pan-Asia railway network and a major route linking China and Laos.

The China Railway Corporation will take the best of its advantages on railway management, technology and resources to lead other enterprises on survey and design, construction and equipment manufacturing among others, as well as cooperate with the Lao government and relevant enterprises in a bid to construct and operate China-Laos railway in a good manner, Huang said.

On behalf of Laos-China Railway Company, Huang pledged to resolutely implement the consensus reached by the two governments on railway construction and operation.

On the basis of initial results, the company will continue to strengthen communication and collaboration with the Lao government at all levels, support each other, follow the plan and requirements so as to ensure high standards of quality and schedule, contributing to promoting socio-economic development of the two countries and prosperity of the two peoples.

The launching ceremony of China-Laos railway construction on Sunday also saw the attendance of Lao Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith, former Deputy Prime Minister of Somsavat Lengsavad, Chinese Ambassador to Laos Guan Huabing, representatives of Lao ministries as well as representatives of cities and provinces along the railway.

Thongloun also shovelled the earth and struck a gong for the official launch of China-Laos railway construction.

The China-Laos railway has a total length of 414.332 km with over 62.7 percent of bridges and tunnels, linking Mohan-Boten border gate in northern Laos and capital Vientiane.

There are 32 stations along the route. Operating speed on the route is designed at 160 km per hour. Construction of the project is scheduled for five years with investment of some 40 billion Chinese yuan (5.76 billion US dollars), 70 percent of which comes from Chinese investment and the rest 30 percent from Laos.

China-Laos railway is the first overseas route connecting with the railway system in China, using Chinese technology, equipment and investment.

After taking a look at Lao - China Railway Map (新建铁路磨丁至万象线线路平,纵断面示意截图), you need to install PICASA to see the file and installing Gimp2.8 + GimpWebP 0.11 for editing the image - the map show that the section from Kunming to Mohan is 513.095 km while the km zero of Lao railway is at the border pole within the Friendship tunnel. Furthermore, Viengchan station on 450 Year Boulevard near National Stadium on Lak 16 (km 16 from Viengchan city center) - is actually Viengchan South station which function as a junction for the train to Savannakhet and the train to Thailand.

Furthermore, Chinese consultant plan the construction of Bypass route between Viengchan North station and Viengchan South station to function as city circle line and Airport link to the new Viengchan airport to supersede Wattai airport

For the train to Thailand, Chinese consultant said it is necessary to construct Tha Nalaeng East station for unloading cargo of ores in container boxes to connect with Thai cargo train ... but the real bone of contention is the New Nong khai station as it has been designated to Na Tha station of existing Thai railway (4 km South of existing Nong Khai station near the foot of Friendship Bridge) due to the fact that Na Tha station has enough space for both cargo and passenger trains while existing Nong Khai station have too little space for further development according to the viewpoint of Chinese consultants. However, Thai government would show strong objection as they want to use the existing Nong Khai station at km 621+100 since the existing Nong Khai station at km 621+100 is already 3 km from downtown Nong Khai, and further distance from city center is not in favor for the local people.

the route around Viengchan capital - it will become ring line once the bypass route in green has been implemented to function as airport link to the new Viengchan airport

Viengchan North station is at Huay Sone
Viengchan station is at Don Noen near Lao National University
Viengchan South station is at National Stadium at km 16 - 4-5 km from Viengchan station

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...type=3&theater


Plan for the section across Mekhong to be implemented after Thailand has agreed to make Thai - China railway connecting with Lao - China Railway - with Tha Nalaeng East station for carrying cargo trains to be unloaded to Thai cargo trains that cross the border.

However, the real bone of contention is New Nong Khai station - Chinese want New Nong Khai station at Natha (about 4 km South of Nong Khai station at km 621 + 100 (foot of Friendship Bridge) which Thailand has some objection. Even though Natha has much larger railway land than the existing Nong Khai station, it is too far away from city center compared with existing Nong Khai station km 621 + 100. Worse, there are very few mass transit around Nong Khai city.

From Shanghai port to Laem Chabang Deep Sea Port in Thailand and then the railway line from Laem Chabang Deep Sea Port to Tha Nalaeng via Nong Khai - you got the idea, don't you?

BTW, the railway from Boten to Viengchan is 414.332 km + 513.095 km from Kunming to Mohan + about 10 km from Mohan to Boten via Friendship tunnel

Tunnel boring for Laos-China railway expected in coming weeks

http://www.vientianetimes.org.la/Fre...ten_Tunnel.htm

The boring of tunnels for the Laos-China railway is expected to begin in the next few weeks following a groundbreaking ceremony to kick off construction of the project in December last year.

The tunnel entrances have been earmarked and concreted in preparation for boring, the project coordinator for Luang Namtha province, Mr Chanthachone Keolakhone, said yesterday.

“The boring machines are being installed and it's expected that boring will get underway soon,” he told Vientiane Times .

The clearance of unexploded ordnance (UXO) along the 17km railway route through the province is almost finished and only an area inside a cemetery remains to be examined. Villagers have asked to conduct a ritual ceremony to relocate the cemetery before UXO removal continues, Mr Chanthachone said.

The 417 km railway will run from the Chinese border to Vientiane through four Lao provinces and the capital Vientiane. The provinces are Luang Namtha, Oudomxay, Luang Prabang and Vientiane.

Nine tunnel entrances in Oudomxay province have also been concreted using imported machinery, the project coordinator for the province Mr Phonpadith Phommakit said yesterday.

“It's expected that tunnel boring could begin this month,” he said, adding that UXO has been removed from several places such as labour camps and areas where construction is set to begin.

Director of the Public Works and Transport Department in Luang Prabang province, Mr Fasanan Thammavong, who is also Head of the Secretariat in charge of the project for the province, said that not much progress has been made. He added that only the relevant facilities such as labour camps and access roads to construction sites have been prepared.

“Tunnel entrances have just been earmarked,” he said, adding that no heavy machinery had been seen.

The US$5.8 billion project will utilise Chinese rail technology, with six Chinese contractors hired to carry out construction.

Construction is expected to be complete by the end of 2021. The single track railway will involve the building of 167 bridges with a total length of 61.81km, 75 tunnels with a combined length of 197.83km, and 32 stations.

Some 50 metres of land along each side of the railway will be preserved for project development and the owners of the affected property will be compensated for their loss.

The coordinators admitted that compensation has not yet been paid and said the villagers concerned were waiting to be informed about the details of the compensation policy.

They said the people affected keep asking where they will be resettled and what unit price they will be offered for their property. Provincial authorities have submitted their requests to the relevant ministries and are now awaiting a response.

The Laos-China Railway Project Management Committee is scheduled to hold talks on Friday in Luang Prabang province to discuss and review all aspects of the work including the compensation to be paid.

Compensation offered to local villagers affected by a development project must ensure that they enjoy better living conditions or at least have the same facilities as before they were displaced, according to a Prime Ministerial Decree on Compensation and Resettlement for People Affected by Development Projects, issued on April 5, 2016.

Compensation and resettlement must be carried out in a just, equal, fair and open manner with the involvement of the project developer, villagers, state officials and other relevant parties, according to the decree.

Not to be outdone by Lao - China Railway, the 7.5 km extension of railway from Tha Nalaeng to Viengchan has been started after opening Tha Nalaeng container yard and cargo office on 23 March 2017. The cargo office and container yard has a price tag of 656 Million Baht (30% aids + 70% soft loan from NEDA with 30 year payment period and 10 year grace period) to allow Thai cargo trains to load cargo stuffs from Lao side to send to Laem Chabang Deep Sea Port
