China to build second railway linking Tibet with inland

China will build a second railway connecting Tibet with other parts of the country, according to a draft outline of a five-year plan released Saturday.
The railway will be built between Tibet Autonomous Region's capital city Lhasa and Chengdu, capital of Sichuan Province, in southwest China, according to the draft outline of the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-2020) on national economy and social development submitted to the national legislature for examination. It provided no further details.
The Qinghai-Tibet Railway is now linking Tibet with inland regions of the country. The 1,956-km railway, which started operation in July 2006, is the world's highest and longest plateau railroad.
Media reports have said the new railway will be about 1,629 km long, and it will only take 15 hours for trains traveling between Lhasa and Chengdu.
"We hope that the railway will be completed as early as possible. It will provide new momentum for our development, especially the tourism," said Wangdui, a national lawmaker and mayor of Tibet's Nyingchi City, where the new railway will go through.
In addition, the country will accelerate construction of railways in border areas and build cross-border corridors, the draft said.
More high-speed railways, including one linking Beijing and Hong Kong (Taipei), will be built, it said.
It is expected that the length of high-speed railways in operation will reach 30,000 km, linking over 80 percent of the country's major cities, according to the draft.

Not even close, but then it's easy tobjust draw lines on the map rather than actually planning something with economy and engineering consideration then actually build it.

Excerpt
China's rail freight volume down 9.4 pct

BEIJING, April 11 (Xinhua) -- The volume of freight carried on China's railways dropped during the January-March period as economic activity remained subdued, official data showed on Monday.

Railways transported 788 million tonnes of cargo in the first quarter of 2016, down 9.43 percent year on year, according to data from China Railway Corporation.

Dragged by a housing slowdown, softening domestic demand and unsteady exports, China's economy expanded 6.9 percent year on year in 2015, the weakest reading in around a quarter of a century.

Dragged by a housing slowdown, softening domestic demand and unsteady exports, China's economy expanded 6.9 percent year on year in 2015, the weakest reading in around a quarter of a century.

According to this, whole freight volume in China rose around 2% for the same period. It is curious why railway moved in opposite direction.

BEIJING - China reported 254.6 billion yuan ($39.35 billion) in fixed investment in highways and waterways in the first quarter (Q1), the transport ministry said Tuesday.

A total of 4.87 billion trips were made and 8.79 billion tons of freight were transported via railways, highways and waterways in Q1, Ministry of Transport official Zhang Dawei said. The number of journeys was down 1.8 percent from the same period last year, and freight tonnage rose 2.1 percent year on year.

In Q1, the cargo-handling capacity of major ports increased 1.7 percent year on year to 2.76 billion tonnes, and the container throughput increased 1.9 percent to 50 million standard units, Zhang said.

Logistics business volume surged more than 50 percent in the first three months, he said, compared with the same period last year.

Zhang expects the current momentum in freight transportation to remain throughout the first half of 2016 while passenger traffic growth will remain subdued as a result of industrial restructuring.

Compared to USA, China has far too much truck transportation of freight. China should increase rail freight transportation significantly.

@skyridgeline,

If that is the case, it is great. More on power lines less on rails. Also, waterlines are bless for China. Can you imagine the CO2 emission if that was carried over by trucks!

That a huge increase in truck freight from 2003 to 2013. Wonder much this is the due to Taobao effect in Chinese retail supply chains and rise of delivery services like SF express.
