Speed up Yuxi - Mohan electrified railway line (玉磨铁路) with a distance of 508.53 km and 160 kph max speed with a price tag of 51609 Million Yuan as the first section of China - Lao Railways (中老国际铁路)
http://m.damofei.com.cn/rszl/18981.shtml

Speed up the railway lines to neighbor countries:
Line 1: China - Vietnam railway (中越国际铁路) Now, allowing the direct connection between Kunming to Hekou checkpoint via Yuxi after the opening in December 2014
Line 2: China - Lao Railways (中老国际铁路) - construction started in August 2015 to give a relief to China - Vietnam railway with a hope to get it done in 2022 after the major tunnels have been done in 2021
Line 3: China - Burma Railway (中缅国际铁路) construction started at Dali (大理) to Ruili checkpoint (中缅口岸瑞丽) via Baoshan (保山) - need to dig Gaoligong tunnel (高黎贡山隧道) and the bridge across Nu Jiang river (怒江)
Line 4: China - Burma Railway (中缅国际铁路) construction started at Dali (大理) to Qingshuihe checkpoint (中缅口岸清水河) via Ling Cang (临沧) - Qingshuihe checkpoint (中缅口岸清水河) is 24 km from the rail terminus of Myanmar railway at Lashio
Line 5: China - Burma - India Railway (中缅印国际铁路) construction started at Baoshan (保山) to Hua Chiaw checkpoint in Tengchong (中缅口岸猴桥) since Hua Chiaw checkpoint in Tengchong (中缅口岸猴桥) is not far away from another rail terminus of Myanmar railway at Myitkyina - can connect to Ledo in India even though Myanmar government prefers to connect with India via the rail head at Kalay

China, Laos to build $6.3 bln railway project by 2020 - China Economic Herald
Excerpt

BEIJING, Nov 15 (Reuters) - China aims to complete laying a 418-kilometre (260-mile) railway from a border town to Laos by 2020, the official China Economic Herald reported, as the economic giant seeks a new route into the emerging markets of Southeast Asia.

The two countries agreed on Friday to jointly build a 40-billion yuan ($6.28 billion) railway from the border town of Boten to the Laos capital Vientiane, the Herald reported.

The deal was announced at a signing ceremony attended by senior officials from the National Development & Reform Commission the country's top economic planner, China Railway Corporation and the Export-Import Bank of China, the paper said.

Laos, poor and landlocked, has traditionally been firmly in the orbit of its larger neighbour to the east, Vietnam.

But China has been aggressively courting Laos as it sees the communist-ruled country as an important route into Southeast Asia, and its ports on the Mekong River for landlocked parts of southwestern China such as Yunnan.
