Ministry of Railways will implement a plan for railway development (2009-2016) at a cost of about $25 billion for capacity expansion over the southwestern region of the PRC. This includes activities such as new construction, double tracking, electrification, and rehabilitation. Within this plan, one option was to support railway construction or capacity expansion as has been done in the past and another option was to support targeted areas such as energy efficiency, environmental sustainability, and safety, where ADB's contribution could be clearly distinguished. Within this plan, ADB identified an IP of $3.24 billion to support these three areas, for which it will provide a support of $1 billion through the proposed MFF. The cost of the equipment is small compared to the cost of other capital assets or construction of a railway line but their benefits are significant; and it is easy to integrate them when the Government is implementing the development plan.
