An article in the Yanji News reports that one step towards a new bridge linking Yanbian with Rason was taken last week:
China-North Korea Border Ring River Port Bridge Construction Project approved by the Ministry of Environmental Protection
The China-North Korea Border Quanhe River Port Bridge Construction is one of the most important construction projects in Hunchun. This project is located at the Hunchun Border Quanhe Port, at the intersection of the low reaches of Tumen River and Quanhe River. It connects Hunchun with the Won Jong Ri in North Korea. The bridge starts from the China Border Port, and ends at the south of the North Korean Joint Inspection Building. The building is still under construction. The bridge will be 920 meters long, and can satisfy the transportation needs between North Korea and China, and stimulate the development of international business between China and North Korea.
The approval of Environmental Impact Statement of this project will lay the foundation of future construction.
