A 414km railway stretching from mining field Tavan Tolgoi to Zuunbayan in Mongolia made progress in its construction – the first part of 50 km rail line has been completed, Mongolian media reported.
It was reported that construction of the railway is divided into three parts. There are six junctions and two large stations to be built along the railway.
A total of 37 mineral deposits sit along the Tavantolgoi-Zuunbayan railroad. Upon commission, the railway will create a new way for coking coal of Tavan Tolgoi to be shipped to Russia and China. It was expected to ship 15 million tonnes of mineral products each year, playing a big role in mineral exports and economic growth.
Through existing railway networks, Mongolia's coal products could be finally shipped to other global buyers via seaside ports in China and Russia.
The project broke ground in May 2019 and was said to come online before December 20 this year.
