In August 1998, ADB approved a loan for construction of the Guizhou Shuibai Railway Project. The loan was to finance a 121 kilometer (km) standard-gauge, single-track, electrified railway line from Liupanshui to Baiguo in the western part of Guizhou. Additional outputs of the Project included construction of service, access, and link roads; computerization of management information and financial accounting systems of the railway company; and institutional development. The construction of the railway line was a major engineering accomplishment. Given the challenging mountainous terrain, 50 tunnels and 102 bridges had to be constructed.
