Adjust font size:

China's government will spend 1.2 billion yuan (about 160 million U.S. dollars) this year on a logistics center for the Qinghai-Tibet railway, project officials said on Wednesday.

Construction of the Naqu logistics center, 300 kilometers north of the Tibetan capital Lhasa, has resumed after a six-month suspension caused by winter conditions.

Song Jinlun, vice general engineer of the project, said that about 26 culverts, 27.54 km of rail lines and 7.94 million cubic meters of earthworks will be built for the center, which is near the Naqu railway station. Upon completion next year, the center will have facilities for product processing, storage and distribution.

The 1,956-km Qinghai-Tibet line, running from Xi'ning, the capital of northwest Qinghai Province, to Lhasa, started operation in July 2006, bringing Tibet its first rail service.
