1,000 km cycle lanes to be built in Changsha
Through riding bicycles, we can enjoy the natural and urban landscape along the way. When tired, we can have a rest, a cup of tea and enjoy ourselves in a courier station, which is a unique feature brought by greenways. The compilation of Planning for Changsha Greenway Construction (2017-2019) has been finished, according to the press conference jointly held by Changsha Urban and Rural Planning Bureau and Changsha Municipal Commission of Housing and Urban-Rural Development. Recently, they are seeking suggestions from citizens concerning greenway construction. In following three years，Changsha greenway construction will be carried out, including development of 1,000 km cycle lanes and 2,000 km footpaths, establishment of 20,000 ecological parking lots and 50 out-door campsites, supply of facilities such as football fields and gymnasia. Subsequently, a system, which connects urban and rural areas, and integrates cycle ride and entertainment, will come into being.
