Urgent repair work is continuing after a dyke burst on Tuesday in Jiangxi Province. Emergency services workers and maintenance teams are desperately building roads to access the breach site.
Workers demolish guardrails along the highway to build a 70-meter long entrance to the breaching site.
They're trying to transport the materials needed to fix the breach as close as they can.
Zou Xiaoping, Deputy Directo, Highway Administration Center, said, "We plan to launch closure efforts on Friday. Our mission tonight is to demolish the fence and build an access directly leading to the dam for transportation use. We expect to finish it in two days. "
Water spewing from the breached dyke has flooded farmland causing huge losses to the local people.
Residents want the breach fixed as soon as possible so they can get home and start over.
Local government officials, technical experts and armed police soldiers are all working together to minimize losses and get everything back to order as soon as they can.
