After nine days' efforts, workers have cleared the only road linking to a remote mountain town in flood-ravaged Sichuan Province. The 23-kilometer road from Hanwang Town is the only access to Qingping.
Workers are using stones from the nearby mountains to build the roadbed. More than a thousand workers and 200 earth movers have been working from both ends of the road. Work has been repeatedly interrupted by floods and mudslides. Traffic is expected to resume Monday evening, allowing relief supplies to reach some 6 thousand stranded villagers.
