PARIS, May I. ^Correspondence of The Associated Press.) ‘France will spend about I .GOU,OOO,OOO
francs on new public work. besides about 3,000,000,000 francs for the rebuilding of railroads in the devastated regions,” The Associated I Press was told today by M. Claveille, Minister of Public Works.
“Our program.” said the Minister. “calls for the electrification of 5,200 miles of railroad, the budding of
3.500 miles of local railroad lines and tramways, the rebuilding of 6,-000 miles of national roads and about OO.OOO miles ot other highways that were ruined by the intense e army traffic or destroyed by mines and shell fire. Wo have also.” he added, “more than 2.000 bridges to rebuild, twelve tunnels that must be practically rebored and a great many culverts to be replaced. I estimate the amount ot material required for this work at ten million tons.”
M. Claveille explained that, although an army of roadw orkers, reaching 78,000 men in 1918. had constantly been employed repairing roadways in the army zone, they were worn almost as last as they were restored.
“The Germans tore tip or bl* >\ up 2,000 miles of track on the Northern railroad system and about
1.500 miles of the lines of the Eastern Railroad, along with 2,OOO miles of telegraph and telephone wired,” he said. “These lines have already been restored in part.
“What remains to be done constitutes a formidable task. Lack ot labor is all that is delaying wotk on these enterprises. Much of the required material was assembled during the last eighteen months of the war.”
