BEIJING -- China's Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development said Tuesday that it will conduct safety checks on ongoing urban rail construction projects starting later in May.
The check will cover rail transport projects in 25 major Chinese cities, including Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin and Chongqing, the statement said.
Local urban-rural development authorities should seriously carry out these inspections while focusing on quality issues concerning project construction, investigation, design and surveillance, and identifying potential safety risks, it said.
For serious problems and potential risks detected during the campaign, the ministry will impose punishments according to law, it added.
China and the US hold the third round of the Strategic and Economic Dialogue from May 9-10 in Washington.
