Lanzhou, March 30 (Huang Fan) On March 27, the construction of the Ningxia section of the China-Lanzhou Railway officially began, making another important step towards the goal of opening the china-Lanzhou railway within the year.After the opening of the China-Lanzhou Railway, the travel time between Zhongwei and Lanzhou will be shortened from the current five hours to about one hour, which will greatly facilitate public transportation.It is reported that the new China-Lan railway is an important part of China’s “eight vertical and eight horizontal” railway network beijing-Hu-Yin-Lan channel and an important transportation infrastructure in the core area of the “Belt and Road” construction and development.There are 7 stations including Zhongwei South Station, Beitan Station, Pingchuan Station, Jingyuan North Station, Baiyin South Station, Lanzhou New District South Station and Lanzhou West Station, which are expected to be completed and open to traffic by the end of this year.After opening to traffic, the line will break the bottleneck of the lack of fast passenger passage between northwest China and North China and northeast China, which is of great significance for promoting the development of western China, narrowing the gap of regional development and promoting social and economic development.
