New bridge to link China, North Korea
(05-27 18:24)

Construction on a new bridge over a river separating China and South Korea has started, authorities of northeast China's Jilin Province said on Tuesday.
With a total investment of 137 million yuan, the 804.7-meter new Tumen River bridge is expected to open in 2015 or 2016 as a new route for bilateral trade, authorities said.
The old Tumen River bridge has not been repaired for many years and is facing safety risks. However, the old bridge will not be dismantled and will be kept as a scenic spot.
