Just read this in an Australian newspaper:

Preliminary work has begun on one of the largest projects, a 427-kilometre railway linking the Lao capital Vientiane to the Chinese border, costing more than $US6 billion ($A8.57 billion).

About 100,000 workers will be needed to build the track through Lao jungles and across its mountains.

The line is designed to open up a route for China to send goods through Laos and Thailand to the maritime highways of the Gulf of Thailand and Bay of Bengal.

It will make a vast difference when completed.

so it will be just for sending goods and not passengers? Disgusting by the way, how they are trying to modernize Laos.

Awesome, Laos needs more Chinese people and there are hundreds of thousands who are going to start moving down in the next coming years!
