Optimize transportation network, strengthen road to economic development

Series reports on Urumqi State High-tech Industrial Zone

The Urumqi municipal government has the idea of building a new district to the north of town, as a second downtown, with millions of people, in 5 - 10 years, and with the Urumqi State High-tech Industrial Zone as its center. The zone follows an "Economic development, transportation first" principle and will have a "three verticals, four horizontals" network to accelerate economic development and give it a large-capacity modern transportation network, greater competitiveness, faster roads, and a green, comfortable, pleasant environment. The administration has a "Big transportation" idea to bring convenience to daily life and accelerate urban and industrial development. The general design for a high-quality new district has the new transpiration network as a lifeline, as a significant infrastructure project.

The greening project to the north of town along a highway and Beijing Rd was completed in 2012, providing a better environment for urbanites. Also, this year, with municipal government support, the zone has put 11.6 billion yuan ($1.895 billion) into the transportation network to speed up work on the new district.

Meanwhile, it is also working on an underground network, better signs, and supportive facilities. After the "three verticals, four horizontals" project is complete, it will turn to the traffic problem, and another artery to the city center should be completed. A transportation project of the last three years has shortened the distance between the new district and the city center, as well as the travel time to neighboring counties. The zone plans to spend 40 million yuan this year on 128 roads in the district, and 200 million yuan on a transportation system, with a road and cycling system and improved operation of the transportation network.

Looking back over the last two years, it is easy to see the success in transportation infrastructure and the new transportation network will be the district's lifeline, development line, and happiness line and with the further development of transportation, a new district will be integrated with a modern highway system, railway system, and airports, putting it on the road to real development.
