The spirit of creating a new construction speed is sweeping through Songsin and Songhwa areas where the construction of dwellings for 10 000 households is underway, true to the grand capital city construction plan of the Workers’ Party of Korea.

The production of gravels and sand is in full swing for the construction of the houses.

The construction headquarters is accelerating the work of finding out new sources of gravels and sand in close collaboration with the Ministry of Land and Environment Protection while scrupulously organizing the work to timely produce and supply the materials.

Different army units and construction units at major gathering places of gravels and sand including the one in the Mirim area, laid material and technical foundations by manufacturing crushers and comprehensive mixers to produce a great deal of them every day and the secured materials are immediately carried to construction sites.

The construction headquarters is conducting every work as it puts main stress on thoroughly ensuring the quality of construction.

In particular, the supervision section has equipped itself with enough testing apparatuses and implements and supervised and controlled the quality of structures in detail to ensure that the construction at each process is pushed according to designs and construction methods.

Builders are speeding up the foundation works in their charge in a qualitative way.

Definite precedence is given to the infrastructure project.

Construction units are working hard to timely transport Hume and plain members while providing necessary materials sufficiently. Soldier builders from several army units have recently wound up the work of diverting the course of hundreds of metres of waterway section.

The soldiers in charge of the construction of apartment blocks 4-a, 5-a, 7-a, 4-b, 5-b and 7-b are registering good results in the concrete placing for foundations after finishing the excavation of groundwork in a short time.

The soldiers of the Ministry of Social Security are fulfilling their daily assignments at over 130 percent after removing a great deal of earth in a few days and finishing the foundation excavation and concrete tamping for the foundation preparation layer before others.

Builders of the Pyongyang Municipal People’s Committee are pushing in earnest the construction of different pumping stations, operational buildings and other external networks.

They increased the operation rate of construction equipment and tools to finish the excavation for an intake pumping station before launching into the concrete placing for foundations and removed tens of thousands of square metres of earth to round off the excavation for settling ponds ahead of schedule. They are also stepping up the construction of 10-odd structures while carrying on the construction of a sewage pumping station.

Meanwhile, relevant units are increasing the production of materials needed for the construction of dwellings.
