Another section of Pan-Asia Railway opens

27 February 2013
A section of railway that will link southwest China’s Yunnan province with countries in southeast Asia became operational on 23 February, local railway authorities confirmed.

The 141km line between Yuxi and Mengzi in Yunnan forms part of the eastern line of the planned Pan-Asia Railway network. It has a designed maximum speed of 120kph and passes through 35 tunnels and crosses 61 bridges, which combined account for 55 per cent of the eastern line’s total length.

The eastern line also consists of the Kunming-Yuxi Railway, which is already in operation, and the Mengzi-Hekou Railway, currently under construction and scheduled to be operational at end of next year.

The Pan-Asia Railway network, which will also consist of central and western lines, will eventually connect Yunnan with Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Malaysia to its southern terminus in Singapore.
