Face-lifting Project of Taedong River Bank Progresses Apace

Pyongyang, July 24 (KCNA) — Much work has been done in the project for rearranging 2.6 km-long bank of the River Taedong from the Pyongyang Grand Theater to the foot of Moran Hill since its start on July 5.

A thousand and hundreds-meter-long roadbed project between the Taedong Bridge and the Taedong Gate, which is the main in the facelifting project, has been carried out at the stage of 80 percent as of July 20.

A 2,160-meter concrete floodwall and 17 flood-gates in Pyongyang have been removed in the main, giving way to a new 5-meter wide road.

Meanwhile, promenades, 1,000-meter-long stone parapet and gardens are being come into shape.

The promenade from the Pyongyang Grand Theater to the Taedong Bridge has already been laid so as to pave it with color blocks.

Sooner or later, the banks of the River Taedong will produce a beautiful landscape in harmony with Kim Il Sung Square, the Grand People’s Study House and the Okryu Restaurant.
