Mi-26 heavy transport helicopter loaded with machinery files over Abuluoha Village in Butuo County of Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture, southwest China's Sichuan Province, Dec. 5, 2019. Nestled in the mountainous area, Abuluoha Village is connected with the outside world with a rugged trail built along a cliff. One way trip needs about 4 hours by walk and goods are transported by horses. To improve the transportation conditions which are believed to hinder the villagers from getting rid of the poverty, local authority decided to build a 3.8-km-long road that will link Weimu Village of Laguo Township with Abuluoha Village in Butuo County of Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture. As the road construction was carried out, problems came. Large-scale machinery and equipment need to be transported to the construction site. A Mi-26 heavy transport helicopter has been rented since Nov. 30 by the construction unit, Sichuan Road and Bridge (Group) Co., Ltd., to help transport machinery and equipment to both ends of the road where the construction works are underway simultaneously. After this road is completed, all the villages in Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture have access to the rural road. (Xinhua/Jiang Hongjing)
