URUMQI — The rail freight volume in Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region surpassed 100 million tons in 2022 on June 28, 21 days earlier than last year, said local authorities.

Xinjiang has a planned rail freight volume of 153.45 million tons for 2022, said the China Railway Urumqi Bureau Group Co Ltd.

To ensure coal transportation during the ongoing power-consumption peak, the regional railway department has compiled a priority list of local power generators according to their respective inventory and transportation distance for on-time delivery.

In 2021, the region launched a two-phase renovation project on a key railway for coal transportation which connects Urumqi with a coal mining area in northern Xinjiang.

The freight capacity of the railway will likely double when the project concludes, according to local authorities.
