The original scope of services was designed to assess the feasibility of Chongqing-Guiyang railway project and prepare it for ADB financing. Major changes in scope and increase in TA amount were approved 2011 and the TA was allocated for preparing the E'Mei-Miyi sub-regional rail link project. The project was then stalled due to the slowdown in railway development following the accident at Wenzhou in July 2011. The government investigated the accident and conducted a review of safety and other aspects of its railway development program. This was followed by the railway reform in 2013 that merged Ministry of Railways into the Ministry of Transport and transferred responsibility for railway operations to the newly established China Railway Corporation (CRC). Subsequently, the government authorized CRC to resume project preparation. At the country programming mission in August 2014, the government and ADB confirmed the project as a firm project in the ADB lending pipeline.
