Dujiangyan rebuilding pushes on

SHANGHAI has spent about 1.5 billion yuan (US$220 million) of the 6.5 billion yuan earmarked for restoration of Dujiangyan City in Sichuan Province, officials said yesterday.

Dujiangyan's earthquake survivors will be able to move into new homes on May 12 next year. And students will have new schools in September, according to Shanghai's office for rebuilding Dujiangyan.

Director Xue Chao said the construction teams and management teams in Dujiangyan were among the best Shanghai had to offer. "We give priority to the quality of the construction," he said.

Facilities in tourist areas, including the Qingcheng Mountain, will also be restored by next year and should be able to take visitors by the end of next year or in early 2011.

Shanghai will also invest 500 million yuan on a modernized agriculture zone to help the farmers in Dujiangyan.

The remainder of the money will be spent over the next two years in the 89 projects Shanghai is involved in to rebuild Dujiangyan.
