The South Korean Government will repair more than 1,500 km of ageing sewer pipeline as part of a major infrastructure renovation plan.
The country will spend US$27 billion on the project over the next four years, renovating ageing public infrastructure and carrying out safety inspections.
The project is planned to run from 2020 to 2023 and will include repairs on the sewers to prevent sinkholes.
The South Korean Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy said the works will focus on improving the safety of public infrastructure prone to accidents and will focus on underground and transportation-related facilities.
