China on road-building spree in Tibet

(TibetanReview.net, Apr 14, 2009) — China said it will spend 6 billion yuan this year to complete ongoing or start new road building projects in the Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR). The investment would constitute 34 percent year-on-year increase and take up 25 percent of the year’s total investment from central government around the TAR, reported China’s online Tibet news service eng.tibet.cn Apr 12.

It said 2.417 billion yuan of the 8.187 billion yuan earmarked for 19 continuing projects involving 2,141 kilometres will be applied this year.

In addition, the report said, 23 new projects will be launched involving 2,437 kilometres of road. The budget for this is 10.69 billion yuan, with 3.3 billion yuan being applied this year.

The major project includes completing a 117.248 kilometres road to Medog County before the end of the 11th “Five-Year-Plan” and building the Lhasa-Gonggar Airport expressway as a class 1 road.

Besides, 250 million yuan will be invested to build nine county-to-county roads, totalling 1,045 kilometres, the report added.
