Railway to connect 75 pct Xinjiang counties by 2020

URUMQI, Aug. 25 (Xinhua) -- The administrative centers of all prefectures and 75 percent of county-level regions in China's far western Xinjiang region will be connected by rail by 2020, local authorities said Friday.

The plan was revealed in Xinjiang's transport construction blueprint (2016-2030), as China's largest provincial-level region seeks to build itself into a Eurasian transport hub.

By 2020, highways in Xinjiang are expected to reach 10,000 km in total length, connecting all the counties, according to the blueprint released by the autonomous region's government. All villages are to be connected by concrete roads.

Meanwhile, the number of civil airports in the region will reach more than 28, it said.

By 2020, the region will have three major transport routes connecting the neighboring countries of Kazakhstan and Pakistan.

Lots of articles about Chinese building the railway through Laos. I was wondering what's the current status of construction of the connection between Kunming and the border. It's as long if not not longer than the connection within Laos...Any of you know?

The section inside China is the Yuxi-Mohan Railway.

The line length is 507km, 80% of which are tunnels and viaducts. Obviously it's a huge undertaking, just like the Laos section. The construction started in 2016, and is expected to last 6 years.

Thanks. Makes sense that both sections are opening at the same time. Without the international sections this one might not have been built, at least not all the way to the border.

Southern Yunnan seems like a cool place to travel through...

Can rail manufacturers in the West hold their pole position despite rapid growth in China?

China railways record 302 mln passenger trips in August

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/20..._136594747.htm

BEIJING, Sept. 8 (Xinhua) -- China's railway network saw more than 302 million passenger trips in August, data from National Railway Administration (NRA) showed Friday.

The volume marked an annual increase of 9.4 percent, with an average of 9.74 million trips made each day, an all time high.

The record was made during the summer travel peak from July 1 to August 31.

In China, summer holidays for students usually last from early July to the end of August, driving up passenger flows.

Rail freight volume also recorded fast growth in August, according to the NRA.

Railways carried nearly 250 million tonnes of cargo last month, up 11.5 percent year on year, but down from 17 percent growth in July.

Rail freight is an important indicator of economic activity, along with electricity consumption and lending.

China's economy expanded 6.9 percent for the first half of 2017. In light of the strong data and expectations of continued fiscal support, the IMF in July revised up China's growth forecast for 2017 and 2018 to 6.7 percent and 6.4 percent respectively.

As of the end of 2016, China had a 124,000-km railway network, featuring the world's largest high-speed rail network of more than 22,000 km.

Do students also get home for new year?
