update:March 13,2020
March 13,2020 -- The construction of Lijiang- Shangri-la railway resumed Wednesday.
The railway with a total distance of 139.7 kilometers is an important part of the Yunnan-Tibet railway. It goes through some famous tourist attractions like Yulong Snow Mountain, Haba Snow Mountain and Tiger Leaping Gorge.
The railway is going to be built into a single electric railway with a target speed of 120 kilometers per hour. 34 bridges and 20 tunnels will be built along the line. The project was launched at the end of 2014 and is expected to be finished by the end of 2020.
92% of the roadbeds, 91.9 of the bridges and 86.7% of the tunnels were completed before the 2020 Chinese New Year. 
When it’s put in operation, the railway will upgrade transportation in the northwestern part of Yunnan province. The railway will also contribute to the stability and economic and social development in northwest Yunnan’s ethnic minority regions.
