Seoul to investigate construction logistics for North Korean rail modernization

Researchers asked to examine how DPRK's low temperatures might impact work, among other issues

Seoul is seeking partners to conduct preliminary research into construction standards and logistics for use in inter-Korean rail connection and renovation, the ROK government-run Korea Rail Network Authority said in a proposal late last week.

The two Koreas agreed to take steps towards the connecting and modernizing of railways and roads on the peninsula in April's Panmunjom Declaration.
