    Pyongyang, April 5 (KCNA) -- Projects for building many objects and facelifting Pyongyang, capital city of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, are progressing apace this year. More than 50 objects and rural dwelling houses will be constructed and over 140 objects be repaired. Among them are the Ryongaksan Spring Water Factory, the Tudan Duck Farm and Kim Po Hyon University.
    Main streets and several bridges in the city are being reconstructed to suit the demand of the modern times.
    Factories under the Pyongyang Building-materials Complex have worked out plans to supply materials needed for projects for renovating the equipment of the Pyongyang Steel Plant and expanding tile production capacity of the Taesong Ceramic Factory. The Ryugyong Park in Pothonggang District, Pyongyang, will be built as a model to be generalized throughout the city. And more than 10,000 trees and over 80,000 flowering shrubs will be planted in parks, recreation grounds and green belts in the spring and autumn periods for the general mobilization of the land management. The districts and counties in the suburbs of the city are dynamically carrying on afforestation work in line with the general tree-planting plan of Pyongyang. Units including the Pyongyang Construction Guidance Bureau which are in charge of major construction objects have completed their blueprints suitable to the requirement of the Songun era and are undertaking the projects.
