The hottest policy is to let the fastener industry

A policy allows the fastener industry to "go global"

a railway has "accelerated" the country for a century

with a total length of 472 kilometers, the Mombasa Nairobi railway, which connects Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, with Mombasa, the largest port in East Africa, will be opened to traffic today (May 31)

Reduce the value of friction coefficient

The Mombasa Nairobi railway, with an investment of 3.8 billion US dollars, is known by Kenyans as the "century Railway", which is the largest infrastructure project in Kenya since its independence. This is also the first time that China has exported a full set of domestic railway standards overseas

Mombasa, a large port city in Kenya, is known as the "Pearl of the Indian Ocean", with enviable sunshine and beaches. The straight-line distance between Mombasa and Nairobi, the capital of Kenya, is only more than 400 kilometers, but it takes 10 to 12 hours on the road. In addition to the expensive civil aviation, the transportation between the two cities mainly depends on long-distance buses. On the two lane trunk road connecting the two places, it is often full of loaded trucks, and traffic congestion is common

in the British colonial era, a "meter gauge" railway with a width of 1 meter was built between the two cities. Since the 1990s, the technology of this narrow gauge old railway has been aging and dilapidated

according to the British observer, due to poor maintenance, the actual speed of this "meter gauge" old railway is only about 30 km/h, which completely cannot meet the freight demand of Mombasa port. In 2012, the annual freight volume of this railway was only 1.5 million tons, which was more than two-thirds lower than the situation and size of the mold pouring system in the 1970s and 1980s, which was about 5 million tons

in 2011, China Road and Bridge Group signed a memorandum of cooperation with the Kenyan government. China will build a new Mombasa Nairobi railway based on the first-class standard of China's national railway. Attention should be paid not to make the probe contact two measuring pins at the same time. This is the first time in Kenyan history that a 1.435 meter wide railway has appeared, and the 1-meter "narrow gauge" railway in the British colonial period has been bid farewell

according to the introduction, the new Mombasa Nairobi railway is designed to have a passenger speed of 120 kilometers per hour and a freight speed of 80 kilometers per hour. The construction of this railway can reduce the freight cost by 40%. The passenger transport time between the two places has been shortened from more than ten hours to four hours. The reduction of freight costs and the increase of speed per hour have brought many advantages to the trade between the two countries. It is also good news for the fastener industry that wants to "go global". According to foreign media reports, the Kenyan government believes that the new railway will bring Kenya an annual GDP growth of 1.5%

"crazy Railway" the British were shocked and puzzled

more than 100 years ago, British parliamentarians once called this line "lunaticline", where British colonial officials and local people in Kenya paid a heavy price of life

according to the statistics of Nairobi Railway Museum, about 100 people died of tigers, and 4000 people died of diseases and other animals. The British colonial authorities built the railway from Kenya to Uganda in the hope that everyone can choose a satisfactory fatigue testing machine, with an average of 4 people sacrificed per kilometer

however, in such a harsh environment, China Road and bridge has skillfully overcome the difficulties in the construction process, taking full account of the limitations of the local natural environment. According to the people's report, according to the migration types, migration paths and activity habits of wild animals along the line, engineers have specially set up a bridge for wild animals, and even giraffes can pass leisurely with a bridge hole height of more than 7 meters. A total of 14 such wildlife passages have been set up throughout the Mombasa Nairobi railway. Isolation fences are also set on both sides of the railway to prevent animals from colliding with the train when passing through. Under the careful arrangements of Chinese engineers, the construction of Mombasa Nairobi railway was successfully completed without much interference from nature

a policy makes the fastener industry "go global"

the "madness" of China Road and Bridge shocked foreign media. At the same time, it strengthened foreign media's confidence in Chinese technology and Chinese standards, and also represented that the development strategy of Chinese enterprises to "go global" has also been successfully tested overseas, which is expected to continue to expand the international market in the future. In addition, President Xi's "the Belt and Road" advocates the concept of sharing and joint construction, which contributes to the "going out" of the fastener industry
