Lhasa-Nyingchi Railway starts construction in 2014: official

A new railway connecting Lhasa and its southeastern neighbor Nyingchi Prefecture is going to be built in 2014, according to Losang Jamcan, chairman of the Tibet Autonomous Region, on Jan. 10, 2014.

Losang Jamcan made the announcement during the government work report in the second session of the 10th Tibet Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference in Lhasa, from Jan. 8 to Jan. 12.

Project of the Lhasa-Nyingchi Railway is now at the feasibility study stage with two designs going southward and northward under discussion.

The Lhasa-Nyingchi Railway marks the second extension of the Qinghai-Tibet Railway, following the Lhasa-Shigatze Railway terminating at Shigatze, the second largest city in Tibet.

The two railways of equal importance will present different views with regard to their different geographical and climate conditions, according to Losang Jamcan.
