March 20, 2020


Abstract : The Kunming-Chuxiong expressway expansion project, a key project of the passage from southwest China's Yunnan Province to Southeast Asia, has resumed construction, according to China Railway Construction Co., Ltd. (CRCC).

BEIJING, March 20 (Xinhua) -- The Kunming-Chuxiong expressway expansion project, a key project of the passage from southwest China's Yunnan Province to Southeast Asia, has resumed construction, according to China Railway Construction Co., Ltd. (CRCC).

Qi Zuquan, standing deputy manager of the project of CRCC's China Railway 22nd Bureau Group, said the 106.9-kilometer-long expressway is the expansion and upgrading project of the current one.

The project is a section of the G56 national highway, which is from Hangzhou in east China's Zhejiang Province to Ruili in Yunnan Province, with a design speed of 100 kilometers per hour and six lanes in both directions. It's expected to effectively relieve regional traffic pressure after opening to traffic, according to Qi.

The expressway covers more than 200,000 square kilometers in Kunming, including Chuxiong, Dali, Baoshan, Lijiang, Diqing and other places. It is an artery driving the economic development of western Yunnan and a major economic artery connecting Yunnan's capital city Kunming to western, northwest and southwest Yunnan and some areas in Tibet, Qi said.

It is learned that the expressway is connected with the Dali-Baoshan expressway, which passes through Ruili and lead to Myanmar, and it will play an important role in promoting China-Myanmar cooperation and the Belt and Road Initiative. (Edited by Yang Qi, kateqiyang@xinhua.org)
