Corruption and shoddy work plague sector, He Na reports in Beijing.

Not far from Shennong Square in Zhuzhou, Hunan province, six buildings towered higher and higher each day on the city's largest construction site. Excavators, bulldozers and trucks transporting sand and stones crisscrossed more than two square kilometers in frenzied activity and about 3,500 construction workers sweated through days and nights to meet their deadline.

On Sept 30, the project was completed in time for the city's 60th anniversary, coming in a year earlier than normal for projects of such scale.

For centuries, groundbreaking ceremonies or the actual completion of huge public works projects have been timed to coincide with significant dates.
