Beijing Olympic projects are under construction as scheduled despite the impact of severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).
To complete the projects by 2008, Beijing is launching the construction of Olympic projects this year. Ninety major projects are already at the groundwork stage, according to Tuesday's Beijing Morning News.
Public transport construction is the most important component, involving construction of light railways, subways, expressways and suburban railways.
Other projects focus on environmental improvement, urban water resources and supply, telecommunications and information.
