Coming soonMonthly opening operation
Today (December 1st)
Let us focus on the departure station of the Laos section of the China-Laos Railway
Headquarters reporter Xu Delin:I am now at Platform 1 of Vientiane Station in the departure station of the China-Laos Railway. First of all, I will introduce you to the characteristics of Vientiane Station. The Vientiane Station has a construction area of nearly 15,000 square meters and a design scale of 3 sets of 5 lines. It is the largest passenger terminal on the Laos section of the China-Laos Railway.
Vientiane means “the city of sandalwood” in Lao. The Vientiane Station is based on the design concept of “the city of sandalwood, the friendship between China and Laos”, which deeply integrates the cultural traditions of China and Laos. First of all, the station building as a whole is based on traditional Chinese ancient buildings, combining the environmental characteristics of the “Forest City” in Vientiane with the gates of classic Chinese buildings. Secondly, the waiting hall of Vientiane Station is embellished with sandalwood color, wood color and white color of the national flower of Laos, the national flower of Laos, which perfectly presents the design concept of “China-Laos friendship in full bloom”. The electronic display in the waiting hall of Vientiane Station displays train schedules and ticket information in Lao, Chinese, and English scrolling. In addition, the station’s broadcast is also available in Chinese, Lao, and English, which is convenient for passengers to travel.
“Lan Cang” will lead Laos into the EMU era
Headquarters reporter Xu Delin:After talking about the station, let me introduce to you the train next to me. It is the “Lancang” train operated by the Laos section of the China-Laos Railway. Its shape is very similar to our domestic “Fuxing” train because it is based on The “Fuxing” EMU technology platform adopts the concepts of internationalization, modernization, and customization, and is tailor-made for Laos in combination with the local natural environment, route conditions and local culture of Laos.
First of all, the car body has a streamlined appearance. It is painted with the Laos national flag of “red, blue, and white”, and uses bionic techniques to incorporate the Lao national flower “Champa Flower” into the exterior shape, which is full of Lao characteristics. The name of this train is “Lan Cang”, the name comes from the ancient name of Laos, “Lan Cang Kingdom”, which means “the country of all things.”
Laos section of China-Laos Railway is ready
People look forward to opening to traffic
Headquarters reporter Xu Delin:The Laos section of the China-Laos Railway organized a media experience event from late November. I also participated in the media experience event. I sat from Vientiane Station to the terminal station. The most intuitive feeling down the road is that this railway will bring great changes to people who have lived in Laos for a long time. Laos is the only landlocked country in Southeast Asia. 80% of the country is mountainous and plateau. It used to take a day to travel from Vientiane to the border between China and Laos. After the opening of the China-Laos railway, it only takes more than 3 hours. This is a very big change. .
The time for official operation is getting closer and closer. Although Laos is still facing the test of the epidemic, the people still look forward to trains. After all, Laos used to have only a 3.5-kilometer railway along the Laos-Thailand border. Now it is entering the era of high-speed trains. The development of China has injected tremendous momentum.
Aortic surging and strong vitality
Seize the opportunity along the railway
The opening of the China-Laos railway will not only facilitate the travel of people and tourists in the areas along the route, but will also bring faster and cheaper cross-border transportation and inject vitality into the development of enterprises along the route. Along the main artery of the China-Laos railway, the new blueprint for industrial layout is slowly unfolding.
The Kunming Central Station of China Railway Union is the starting point for the international freight trains of China-Laos Railway. In the past two days, customers consulting China-Laos cross-border logistics and transportation business have been busy. The first week of China-Laos Railway’s train container reservation is full, and it is hard to find a box. . At present, the transportation of goods from Kunming to Vientiane originally took two to three days. After the opening of the China-Laos railway, the goods can be transported directly through one-stop, which greatly improves the timeliness.
Xu Chao, deputy general manager of China Railway Union Kunming Central Station: After the opening of the China-Laos Railway, in addition to the port operation time, we can achieve freight trains to Vientiane within 24 hours.
Taking the new railway channel, cross-border and cross-provincial transportation can achieve low-cost development, and many enterprises have ushered in new opportunities for development. A batch of 6,500 tons of goods from Pu’er Linda Wood Industry Co., Ltd. will be used for the construction of the Vientiane Special Economic Zone in Laos. They will take the China-Laos international train and transport them to Laos in one-time container transportation.
Unblocked large passages at home and abroad provide strong support for the development of industries along the route. The Ning’er Station on the China-Laos Railway has a designed annual cargo throughput target of 1.12 million tons. In the nearby Ning’er area of the Pu’er Industrial Park, the forest board furniture industrial park has begun to take shape. Relying on the large channel, the blueprint of the industrial cluster base is beginning to appear, and Pu’er’s resource advantage is turning into a development advantage.
He Bin, Deputy Secretary of the Party Working Committee of Pu’er City Industrial Park:The layout of the forest industry across the country is just a blank spot in the southwest area. We rely on the large passage to deploy the forest board furniture industry in this place, which can serve the domestic and Southeast Asian markets at the same time.
The logistics industry is planning ahead. Yuxi International Logistics Park is located at the intersection of China-Laos Railway and China-Vietnam Railway. Now it has built 12 conjoined warehouses with a single warehouse capacity of 3750 tons and 6 warehouses with a single warehouse capacity of 833 tons. Bonded logistics is under construction. Centers, cold chain emergency guarantee distribution centers, and multiple agricultural product processing projects, spurring the formation of a 100 billion-level logistics industry.
Chen Jianxun, Chairman of Yuxi Logistics Investment Company:For example, our grain logistics industrial park is mainly engaged in the storage and transfer of grain, the processing of feed and rice, and the processing of agricultural products. Our cold-chain food and automobile-related businesses are also extended abroad.
