Mongolia’s coal railway construction reaches 100km mark www.news.mn
Ulaanbaatar Railway JSC has reached the 100 km mark for the construction of the railway line between Zuunbayan and Tavantolgoi.
On November 30, the railway construction team working on the strategically important “coal line” completed the 4000th section, thus completing 100 km. The milestone has been reached by Ulaanbaatar Railway employees in less than a year. Despite weather conditions becoming harsherwith the arrival of winter, progress continues to be made as a result of proper preliminary preparations.
The railway connecting Chinese border with Mongolia’s giant Tavan Tolgoi coal mine is expected to open in 2022. The line will be yet another nail in the coffin of Australia’s coal exports to China.
