The China-Laos railway has a total length of 414.332 kilometers with over 62.7 percent of bridges and tunnels, linking Mohan-Boten border gate in northern Laos and capital Vientiane. It is the first overseas route connecting with the railway system in China, using Chinese technology, equipment and investment. Construction of the project is scheduled for five years with investment of some 40 billion Chinese yuan (US$5.8 billion), 70 percent of which comes from Chinese investment and the rest 30 percent from Lao side. The operating speed on the route is designed at 160 km per hour.[Xinhua/Zhang Jianhua]
