Shangri-lanews 2019-05-14 15:41:15


The Qidali tunnel on the Lijiang-Shangri-La railway in northwest Yunnan was holed through May 12, after 1,500 plus days of hard work organized by China Railway Tunnel Group (CRTG).


 

The 8,733-meter tunnel is one of the key projects on the Lijiang-Shangri-La railway. Surrounded by weak rocks that often cause large deformation, the project posed challenges to the Chinese builders.


With an investment of 10.56 billion yuan, the 139.6-kilometer railway is expected to greatly boost tourism in northwest Yunnan.
