Road construction benefits Tibetan monasteries

Tibet launched an infrastructure construction project to improve the traffic conditions for remote monasteries in late June, according to China Communications News, an industry journal of transportation.

A commencement ceremony was held in Serdochen Monastery in Shigatse Prefecture on June 21, initiating an infrastructure project planning to build 260.46 kilometers highroad for 120 isolated monasteries.

This project received a total investment of 160 million yuan, covering 18 counties and 72 townships in Shigatse Prefecture, and was expected to accomplish by the end of October 30, 2012, according to the source.

The authority of Shigatse planned to invest 173 million yuan for another road project in 2013, to construct 577.2 kilometers road for 109 monasteries by the end of that year.

The road project undertaken in Shigatse Prefecture, the second largest prefecture in southwest China's Tibet, was a part of the construction campaign to improve the traffic and living quality of monasteries, as well as benefit the religious practitioners and followers.
