China has unveiled plans for extending the Chinese National Rail Network to the border with India. The railway line will reach the Tibetan town of Dromo near the Nathu La Pass to Sikkim, the China News Service (CNS) reported. Up to US$1.2bn dollars (UKŁ652m; EUR€939m) will be invested in building new railways in the Tibetan region in the coming 10 years, said the report, citing Tibetan officials. The planned railways included a line extending west from Lhasa to Shigatse and another line heading east from Lhasa along the Yarlung Tsangpo River (Brahmaputra) to Nyingchi (Kongpo), CNS said. The line to Dromo would extend from the Lhasa-Shigatse Line, it said.
