East China city closes most construction sites to cut pollution

The city is capital of coastal Shandong Province and home to more than 7 million people.
Only a small portion of construction sites will be spared, such as the city's ongoing subway project.
North China is under intense pressure to meet clean air targets, particularly in winter, when residential heating systems are switched on.
