China built Qinghai-Tibet line and then Sichuan-Tibet line, why build Sichuan-Tibet railway? Foreigners can't understand
Road to Heaven by Han Hong led us to Qinghai-Tibet Railway. Its creation combined wisdom and labor of countless Chinese people. This major project is a symbol of rise and revival of our country. .
After completion of Qinghai-Tibet line, my country has carried out another complex project - Sichuan-Tibet line. Next, we will lead everyone to get to know each other.
1. Location and surroundings of Sichuan-Tibet line
The Sichuan-Tibet Line refers to a stretch of over 2,000 kilometers from Chengdu, Sichuan, to Lhasa, Tibet. Along way, you will pass through several large rivers, such as Dadu River, Yalong River, Jinsha River, etc., also known as "China Landscape Avenue" or National Highway 318.
Walking through these places, we can see endless lands, beautiful white clouds, ethnic cultures, etc., which will immerse us in colorful world of customs and customs. Today we can see so many beautiful landscapes and local customs that are closely related to our engineers and railway workers who built Sichuan-Tibet line.
This route is not only difficult, but also consumes a huge amount of materials during project. Why did you say that? First, difficult terrain.Building Sichuan-Tibet railway is more difficult than building Qinghai-Tibet railway.
It is necessary not only to overcome hypoxic environment, but also to overcome new difficulties and problems associated with construction. For example, this route starts from province of Sichuan, which passes through a large number of mountains, most representative of which are mountains of Hengduan.
We know that Hengduan Mountains are notorious for being a region with difficult geological conditions. Mountains can easily be blocked during construction, landslides and other natural disasters.
There is also a plateau climate environment. Building in such an environment will easily damage an already fragile ecological environment, which means that requirements for environmental protection are very high. Time is another matter, although length of its entire line is shorter than that of Qinghai-Tibet line, it takes longer than Qinghai-Tibet line.
Secondly, there are always more solutions than difficulties
Despite dangerous terrain and harsh conditions, many Chinese engineers have not given up: they take on difficult tasks and missions, carry advanced domestic equipment, and constantly conduct research and discovery.
In Hengduan Mountains, to reduce impact of geological disasters, engineers decided to build a line on a viaduct so as not to damage fragile ecological environment along way. In addition, many tunnels were dug around mountains. After crossing Hengduan mountains.
Then we have to experience "ups and downs", from start to finish, winding and twisting along way, rising suddenly and falling suddenly. Ascent, cumulative climb over 10,000 meters. The Sichuan-Tibet line has been explored since early days of founding of New China, and some sections have not yet been completed.
Take train from Sichuan to Tibet, I think most people are shocked by places they pass. You can feel tremendous effort put in as railroad circles mountains as well as ascent and descent.
It's a bit like a rollercoaster ride, but more thrilling and exciting than a roller coaster. The hill climb is not a short climb. There are many climbs here. The first lift is just a warm-up. All.
And length of slope is very long. It is assumed that first section is about 1500 meters, and each subsequent section will either increase in length or be similar to first section.
After climbing a certain slope, you will suddenly descend more than a thousand meters, which is why you are said to experience "ups and downs".
3. Why was Sichuan-Tibet railway built?
Many people are sure to have questions: “Why build Sichuan-Tibet railway in such difficult conditions after Qinghai-Tibet railway was built?” Questions arise not only among our Chinese, but also among foreigners. questions. Although Tibet appears to be vast at first glance, local economy has lagged behind due to high altitude and harsh natural conditions.
The main purpose of building Sichuan-Tibet line is to give Tibet more opportunities for development. The ancients often said that if you want to become rich, you must first build roads. Although Qinghai-Tibet railway has been built, it is still far from sufficient for Tibet.
If Tibet wants to develop further, it must have a more convenient route. Where is economic center of Southwest China? That's right, this is Sichuan. Compared to Tibet, Sichuan has a beautiful name - "Land of Plenty". What does this mean?
That is, local products are very rich and environment is beautiful, which is very suitable for people's lives. If Sichuan-Tibet Railway is fully opened, it means that Tibet will be connected to economic center and more information and economic investment will be delivered to Tibet.
More importantly, although land in Tibet is relatively barren due to topography, it is rich in minerals that are of great importance to country. Due to fact that he was in traffic, his transportation costs increased.
It is extremely difficult to mine and use economically and rationally, so if Sichuan-Tibet line is fully opened, it will solve problem of difficult transportation of minerals. Thus, economic exchange with more developed cities has deepened. In addition, although economy of Tibet has lagged behind, scenery is indeed very charming, which also contributes to development of local tourism.
Communication and integration between cities will not only help economic development between cities, but will also benefit development of national economy. Only when economy improves can standard and quality of people's lives continue to improve.
