The Fujian provincial government recently issued a notice for better exploitation of underground space.

To improve the urban infrastructure, more underground space will be developed into parking lots, pipeline ditches, transportation channels or garbage recycling centers, said the notice.

However, construction of residential homes, nursing homes, schools, kindergartens, and hospital wards are forbidden in the underground area.

It is notable in the notice that Fujian encourages social capital to invest in the exploitation of underground engineering projects, such commercial streets, air-defense facilities and other civil infrastructure projects.
