Pyongyang, January 5 (KCNA) — A brisk drive was conducted in Korea last year to renew the territorial environment.
In the past one year, over 750,000,000 trees of various species were planted on mountains and riversides, in villages and along roads.
New roads extending 1,560 km were laid across the country and 40,000 km of roads readjusted. More than 99,000 road-signs of various types were put up along roads across the country. And sidewalks extending 600 kilometres were laid along Pyongyang-Wonsan, Pyongyang-Kaesong and Pyongyang-Hyangsan highways so as to ensure traffic safety and speed and offer better conveniences to people.
People throughout the country readjusted embankments extending 11,000 km to prevent natural disasters.
Meanwhile, a dynamic campaign was launched to protect environment such as air and water and promote the people’s health.
As a result, over 4,000 environmental protection establishments including gas and dust collectors, sewage purifying sites and sewage settling basins were repaired or built across the country. City afforestation was intensified so that quick fences extending 3,000 kilometres were built throughout the country.
