Pyongyang, September 21 (KCNA) -- The railway reconstruction is making headway in the flood-hit areas of North Hamgyong Province, the DPRK.
According to Won Sung Ho, head of a department of the Ministry of Railways, landslide removal has been carried out at 65 percent and the restoration of subgrade and mast at 70 and 35 percents respectively until now, reopening some railway sections to traffic.
The recent disaster in the country's northern part destroyed railroads of several hundred kilometers, including Namyang-Hakpho and Sophungsan-Musan railway sections.
Many units under the ministry turned out in an all-out work to finish the rehabilitation of damaged railways in the disaster areas at an early date. -0-
