Chinese peacekeeping engineers to South Sudan complete road repair task

BEIJING, May 7 -- After 127 days of hard work, the 11th Chinese peacekeeping engineer contingent to South Sudan (Wau) has recently completed the repair of the main supply line from Wau to Tonj.

The 103-kilometer-long supply line is an important traffic route connecting South Sudan's capital Juba with Wau. Perennial rainwater scouring and vehicle rubbing had seriously deformed the road. The reopening of the road after repair will largely facilitate the lives of nearby residents and promote local economic development.
