Tripoli, 5 November 2013:
South Korean construction firm Hyundai Engineering and Construction (E&C) is now half-way through a project to . . .[restrict]build 2,000 housing units in Guba, in the east of the country.
“So far, we have completed 50 percent of the structure,” manager of Hyundai E&C, Lee Song-Jae, told the Libya Herald. He said that the project was expected to be completed by 2015.
Work on the housing units began in 2010 but was suspended at the outset of the revolution. Hyundai E&C were swift to return to Libya, in October 2011, and found that the site and equipment had been protected from vandalism or looting by local people, Song-Jae said.
The project resumed in April 2012, starting with essential maintenance work.
The new housing units are a government-funded project and Hyundai E&C are contracted by the Organisation for the Development and Administrative Centres (ODAC). [/restrict]
