New railway operational in China’s Xinjiang

The Altay-Fuyun section of the Afuzhun (Altay-Fuyun-Zhundong) railway line in northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region began operations Sunday.

Both passenger and cargo trains will ply on the newly unveiled 148-km-long railway line, according to China Railway Urumqi Group Co., Ltd. The Fuyun-Zhundong section became operational in late 2019.

Spanning 419 km, the Afuzhun railway is connected with another railway, and together they form part of a circular railway network in the northern part of Xinjiang.
