The rural roads in Tibet have exceeded 58,000 kilometers by the end of last year.
Official statistics show that the rural roads have connected 99.7 percent of the townships and 97.4 percent of the villages in the whole region, thanks to great efforts made by local government. There are 680 townships and 5,125 villages in Tibet.
Meanwhile, the passenger transport has covered 98.6 percent of the counties and 56 percent of the villages.
“The fast developing rural roads have transformed the dirt roads into asphalt roads. The local government of Tibet will dedicate itself to the leapfrog development of road traffic, ensuring every village could have access to rural roads,” said Tashi Phuntsok, head of the Communication Department of Tibet Autonomous Region.
