The ministry has so far built and renovated 250,000 km of rural highways this year, 50,000 km more than its plan for the year, spokesperson Wu Chungeng told a news conference Friday.

Meanwhile, bus services have been expanded to over 7,000 more villages in China, exceeding the annual target of 5,000 more villages.

Wu said the country has also built and renovated 1,000 service facilities for crucial national and provincial highways, reduced administrative barriers, and established online platforms for administrative licensing in 2018.

The ministry will introduce more measures in 2019 to accelerate transport construction and improve people's livelihoods, Wu said. Enditem
