Up to now, the construction process of China-Laos railway has gone through 5 years.Among them, the China section of the China-Laos railway passes through the karst landscape, and the builders experienced many unimaginable difficulties and hardships...
The China-Laos railway is divided into China section and Laos section, both of which were built by China.The design speed of the China-Laos railway is 160 kilometers per hour, which is lower than other domestic railways. This is due to the geological environment of the railway line, which is mountainous and hilly, so the original speed of 200 kilometers per hour is reduced to 160 kilometers per hour.
The section of China-Laos Railway from Yuxi to Mohan is more than 500 kilometers, traversing the most geologically complex region in China. Here, mountains and rivers intersect, cliffs and cliffs, and karst geomorphology features are obvious.The railway builders fought hard, struggling in the front line, their efforts to move the figure.
