Read about it here: China’s US$7 billion railway link to Laos is almost half done, on schedule to begin service in 2021
An excerpt from South China Morning Post:
"China’s railway line to Laos, a 414km (257 miles) link between the Yunnan’s provincial capital of Kunming and the Laotian capital Vientiane, is almost half complete, putting it on schedule to begin service in December 2021, said the chief of Lao Railways.
Trains on the line can travel at up to 160 km/h (100mph), cutting the travelling time between the two cities to three hours from three days, said Lao Railways’ director general Somsana Ratsaphong. Tickets will start from US$20 a trip."
