The rural road fundamental database serves as the basis to construct roads in the rural areas of Jiangsu province. The database accurately reflects the plans and achievements in rural road construction. To meet the demands of constructing a rural road network in the county by the 12th Five-year Plan period (2011-2015), Xuyi county traffic and transportation bureau seized the opportunity to makes plans in advance and organize staff workers to expand the local rural road database.
By the end of the 11th Five-year Plan period, Xuyi had constructed 1,883 kilometers rural road. These roads formed a network and solved traffic problems for the local people. The road network greatly boosted the rural economy. The expansion of the rural road database is of great significance to meet road network construction standards and carry out the instructions of the provincial and municipal authorities.
The county traffic bureau takes the lead in carrying out the work. With full support of townships, it has made field surveys and put the information into the database. It has mapped out the roads with GPS surveying and mapping technology. The work will be fully finished by the end of the month.
