Roadbed of Pyongyang-Nampho Motorway laid

Pyongyang, November 8 (KCNA) — Roadbed of Pyongyang-Nampho Motorway extending 40 odd kilometers has been formed in the main.


The construction of roadbed and irrigation structures has been finished in the whole motorway section between the Mangyongdae fork in Pyongyang and Sangdaedu-dong, Hanggu district, Nampho. At present this section is used by vehicles involved in the motorway project.

The project of this motorway which will link Pyongyang with Nampho, has been undertaken by young people.

Over the past one year, the young builders removed more than 12.6 million cubic metres of earth, spread over 950,000 cubic metres of grabbles and sand and used over 100,000 cubic metres of mixture of cement and sand for concrete tamping by fully displaying the revolutionary spirit of self-reliance though they were short of machinery and equipment.

They successfully conducted several blasting for blowing up hills to remove 200,000 or 300,000 cubic meters of earth and ran over 40 km a day, carrying bags full of earth on their shoulders to lay roadbed.

High appreciation has been given to them who finished such a vast project even under the difficult conditions in which they were short of everything.

The young builders are determined to completely finish the project before October 10 next year on which the 55th anniversary of the Worker’s Party of Korea falls.
