China-Myanmar railways

A proposal is under construction for a 1920 km rail link between Kunming, the capital of China’s Yunnan Province and Yangon, with plans to extend the line up to Tavoy where a major port development project of Thailand is coming up.

There are also plans to construct a railway line along the dual gas and oil pipeline (already under construction) linking Kyauk Phyu in the Arakan state and Kunming.

A rail link running through Shan state from Kunming to the Thai town of Chiang Rai is being planned. This link will be connected to the Thai rail network.

Media reports indicate that two more rail links between the Chinese town of Dali with Myitkyina and Lashio are being planned.

China has also agreed to upgrade Myanmar’s rail stock.
