Construction restarts, expands at Tumen’s new bridge to North Korea
Construction progress appears to have picked up following pause earlier in the year

Photos taken of the site early in the year, when construction appeared to have stalled, showed an emerging structure capable of carrying only single-lane traffic across the river basin, with unfinished access roads on both sides of the bridge.
