The Vientiane Capital Station on the Laos-China Railway was inaugurated Wednesday, as the project nears completion ahead of the railway's December launch.


Vientiane Capital Station, with three platforms and five track lines, will be the largest station along the railway, covering 14,543 square meters in Xay Village, Xaythany District.


The station was designed by China Railway Construction Group to evoke the original meaning of the capital city's name, "City of Sandalwood."


The station was also meant to show China and Laos' friendship.


According to Xinhua, the station's main building uses the stretch ratio of Chinese traditional ancient architecture as a benchmark, combining the environmental characteristics of Vientiane with the door style of Chinese classic architecture.


Meanwhile, the station hall roof is supported by eight tree-branch-shaped eaves and columns, which take inspiration from tropical rainforests. The eaves will seem as trees casting shadows across the station's front when the sun shines.


The Laos-China Railway, which will travel for 426 kilometers between China and Vientiane Capital and reach a top speed of 160 kilometers per hour, is set to open on December 2nd.
