After 13 months of efforts by close to 1,000 constructors, Jingzhai Tunnel, the last on the China-Laos Railway, was completed on June 5. It also symbolizes the completion of all 167 tunnels along the railway. Jingzhai Tunnel was designed by China Railway Eryuan Engineering Group Co., Ltd. and built with the help from China Railway Tunnel Group. The completion laid a solid foundation for the opening of the entire railway by the end of 2021.
Located in the south of the Hengduan Mountains in Menghan Town, Jinghong City of Xishuangbanna Dai Autonomous Prefecture in southwest China’s Yunnan Province, the Jingzhai Tunnel measures 9,509 meters in total length, and 711 meters in the deepest part. It is a grade I high-risk tunnel. Stretching more than 1,000 kilometers, the China-Laos Railway starts from Kunming, capital of China’s Yunnan Province, and ends at Vientiane, capital of Laos. After opening, it will make direct transportation within the day possible from Kunming to Vientiane.
