CHINA-WUHAN-ELECTRICIAN-RUSH REPAIR (CN)

Aerial photo taken on Feb. 12, 2019 shows emergency worker Dong Jinbing (L) inspecting the high voltage wire with his workmate Wang Wensheng on the power transmission tower in the mountain area of Wuhan, capital of central China’s Hubei Province.

A team of electricians was dispatched to repair a high voltage wire that was broken due to thick layer of ice accumulation. After one day’s work on the over 40-meter-high power transmission tower in bad weather condition, the team succeeded in fixing the failed power system that lowered the trains’ speed causing delay during the post-holiday travel peak. This year’s Spring Festival travel rush started on Jan. 21 and will last till March 1, with railway trips expected to hit 413 million in total, up 8.3 percent. (Xinhua/Xiao Yijiu)
