The 9,509-meter-long Jingzhai tunnel of the China-Laos railway was successfully drilled through on June 5.

So far, all 167 tunnels of the China-Laos Railway have been drilled, laying a solid foundation for the operation of the railway at the end of this year.

The China-Laos railway stretches more than 1,000 kilometers from Kunming, capital of Yunnan province, to Vientiane, capital of Laos.

Upon completion, it will slash the travel time between Jinghong city, Xishuangbanna Dai autonomous prefecture and Kunming to nearly three hours, while the travel time between Kunming and Vientiane will be shortened to less than a day.
