Sichuan province in China is planning to invest 845.3bn yuan ($131bn) to build 11 railway lines in the province under its 12th Five-Year Plan programme.

Under the plan the Chengdu-Kunming railway line will be extended to include Emei and Ya’an station, as well as special Chengdu-Xi’an and Chengdu-Guiyang railway passenger lines.
