Does anyone know how freight trains will be handled between standard gauge Kunming - Vientiane trains and meter gauge Vientiane - Bangkok trains. Is there any facility set up to move containers from train to train? In Thanaleng station or other station?.

I think the most important function of Kunming - Vientiane line is freight transportation between China and South East Asia. Passenger transportation is limited.


It should be planned soon.

First major tunnel over 5,000 meters drilled through along China-Laos railway

http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/201..._137915142.htm



BOTEN, Laos, March 21 (Xinhua) -- A Chinese railway engineering company on Thursday drilled through Boten Tunnel, the first major tunnel over 5,000 meters along the China-Laos railway.

This marks an important milestone in the construction of the project. The Boten Tunnel, with a length of 6453.5 meters, is among the 10 major tunnels longer than five km along the China-Laos Railway.

Khamsouk Bounyavong, vice president of Lao People's Revolutionary Party Central Committee's Inspection Committee, and Ju Guojiang, chairman of the Laos-China Railway Co., Ltd, the joint venture in charge of the construction and the operation of the railway, attended the drilling-through ceremony in Boten on Thursday.

The tunnel has to pass through unfavorable geology such as karst, bedding rock, fault fracture zone, gypsum, carbon mudstone, and water inrush, and it varies, thus creating lots of difficulties to the Chinese engineering company, China Railway No. 5 Engineering Group (CREC-5).

The Boten Tunnel was selected to be built as a high-quality demonstration model for the railway project. Since March 2017 when the construction started, the Chinese engineers have strictly implemented the managing requirements of mechanization, industrialization, informatization and profession.

The CREC-5 strengthened the on-site safety and quality control and extensively applied tunnel construction kits, vigorously carried out scientific and technological research, actively promoted the application of new technologies, and paid close attention to process management so as to ensure the safe and orderly advancement of tunnel construction, and lay a solid foundation for the Thursday's victorious breakthrough.

Main section of China-Laos Railway bridge over Mekong River completed

http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/asi..._138264471.htm

VIENTIANE, July 28 (Xinhua) -- With the concrete beam of the last span over Mekong River put in place, the main section of Luang Prabang cross-Mekong River railway bridge has been completed on Sunday, seven months ahead of schedule.

The closure of the Luang Prabang Mekong River Super Major Bridge, one of the two cross-Mekong bridges along the China-Laos Railway, indicated that the railway project construction has made major progress in the 2019 civil engineering schedule.

The 1,458.9-meter bridge lies in the north of the Luang Prabang Ancient Town, a world heritage in Laos, some 220 km north of the capital Vientiane, with five main piers including 34 spans planted in Mekong River.

According to the Laos-China Railway (LCRC), which is in charge of the construction and the operation of the railway, the Luang Prabang cross-Mekong River bridge is a challenging task among over 160 bridges of the railway, involving the most complicated bridge building techniques.

With engineering quality borne in mind, the Chinese engineering teams have overcome the difficulties brought by the Mekong River with its turbulent current, rapidly rising water level in rainy seasons and non-overburden riverbed. The teams have also overcome the technical difficulties in building trestle bridge for pier construction.

According to the China Railway No. 8 Engineering Group (CREC-8), which is in charge of the construction of the two cross-Mekong River bridges of the railway, construction of the Ban Ladhan Mekong River Super Major Bridge is also advancing smoothly, and will be completed by the end of 2019, as scheduled.

Nearly 80 pct of China-Laos railway construction completed

http://www.globaltimes.cn/content/1165220.shtml

Nearly 80 percent of the construction of the China-Laos railway has been completed, said Lao Deputy Prime Minister Sonexay Siphandone on Saturday.

The railway will serve as a key infrastructure for the economic corridor between the two countries and help boost trade, investment and tourism, said Sonexay at the China-ASEAN Expo held in Nanning, capital of south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

With a designed speed of 160 km per hour, the China-Laos railway is expected to be fully operational in 2021.

Ground-breaking ceremony of the railway was held in December 2015, and the construction of the whole route officially started a year later.

China had invested a total of 12.5 billion US dollars in 782 projects in Laos by the end of June this year since 1988, making it the biggest investor in Laos, said Sonexay.

Chinese investments in Laos are mainly focused on infrastructure projects like hydropower plants, highways and power grids, according to the deputy prime minister.

China-Laos railway's longest tunnel holed

http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/201..._138661119.htm



VIENTIANE, Dec. 27 (Xinhua) -- China-Laos railway tunnels' construction has made a decisive breakthrough, with its longest tunnel drilled through on Friday morning in the tropical mountains of northern Laos.

Seven months ahead of the planned timetable, the Chinese engineering companies, namely PowerChina Sinohydro Bureau 3 Co., LTD (Sinohydro 3) and Sinohydro 14, on Friday bored the 9,384-meter-long Ban Sen No.2 Tunnel, south to the ancient Lao capital of Luang Prabang, some 170 km north of capital Vientiane.

This marks an important milestone in the construction of the China-Laos railway, as the engineering work enters the ending-up phase, and the railing work and construction of the railway stations are soon to be kicked off.

The Ban Sen No. 2 Tunnel crosses the provincial border of Luang Prabang and Vientiane in the tropical mountains, with steep terrain, complex geology, abundant groundwater, and difficult construction and transportation conditions.

According to a mobilizing meeting for the dry season's work held in Vientiane in October, by the Laos-China Railway Co. Ltd (LCRC), which is in charge of the railway's construction and operation project, 79 percent of the civil engineering work contract volume has been completed till then, while breakthroughs have been made in lots of key and bottle-neck projects, especially for the tunnel construction.

The China-Laos railway has holed through around 50 tunnels so far out of its 76 tunnels with a total length of 198 km.

The China-Laos railway has holed through around 50 tunnels so far out of its 76 tunnels with a total length of 198 km.
Chinese companies on Friday marked the completion of the excavation and construction of a tunnel ( Ban Sen No.2 Tunnel) through Phoupha-ngarm Mountain - the longest on the Laos-China railway.
The 9,384 metre-long tunnel was built by Sinohydro 3 and Sinohydro 14 between Luang Prabang and Vientiane provinces and has been hailed as a major milestone in the project.
Sinohydro Corporation Limited and Power China are international business leaders in the management of international hydropower development, construction, and various fields of infrastructure.


Excavation of the Phoupha-ngarm tunnel began on March 15, 2017, and was completed seven months ahead of schedule.
High-quality technologies have been applied in the construction of the tunnel, Chairman of the Laos-China Railway Co., Ltd., Mr Ju Guojiang told Lao media.
He added that early completion of the tunnel reflected the hard work of the company’s staff which had made it possible, and it was a great milestone in the construction of the railway.
The Laos-China railway is part of China’s Belt and Road Initiative and will boost the Lao government’s efforts to turn the nation from landlocked into a land-linked country.
The 414-km railway will carry trains that can travel at up to 160km/hour and link Vientiane to the Chinese border.
Lao and Chinese authorities have agreed to accelerate work to finish the railway in time to mark the 46th anniversary of the founding of the Lao People’s Democratic Republic on December 2, 2021.
About 95 percent of the total land required for the railway has been handed over to Chinese contractors.
The railway slices through the provinces of Luang Namtha, Oudomxay, Luang Prabang and Vientiane as well as the capital and has 75 tunnels with a combined length of 197.83km.
The track will form part of the planned regional rail route linking China’s Yunnan province to Singapore via Laos, Thailand and Malaysia.
As of November this year, 80 percent of the structural engineering work was complete, according to project officials.
