North Korea has finished preparatory work at a new launch pad for long-range missiles on its northwest coast, a report said Tuesday.

Chosun Ilbo newspaper quoted a government source as saying the launch structure has been installed and a hangar has been completed at the Dongchang-ri launch site.

“Large girders have recently been installed and the two or three months of preparatory work at the launch pad have been completed,” the source told the daily.

“However, no radar has yet been set up and no missile has been brought to the launch pad. A launch is not imminent.”

The North’s three previous long-range missile launches were from Musudan-ri on the east coast, where the paper said the launch structure is 32 metres high.
