Korea: Govt. to reset guidelines on seismic design for nation's ports

Source(s):  Korea Herald - Herald Media Inc.

The land ministry said Monday it put out an urgent bid to carry out research to establish new seismic design guidelines for airports and seaport facilities, one of the government's followup measures to an earthquake that rocked country's southeast last week.

The Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport will accept applications until Nov. 27 for studies on facility construction and retrofits that would minimize damage from earthquakes while maximizing preventive safety, ministry officials said.

A 5.4 magnitude tremor struck Pohang on Wednesday, with nearly 60 aftershocks following as of Monday morning. Nearby Gyeongju was hit by a 5.8 magnitude quake in September last year.
