At night on April 8, fencing construction of the first non-motor vehicle lane commenced in roars of machines. 60 days later, a non-motor vehicle lane starting from the gate of Houhu Park and stretching across Huaiyin Avenue to West Ring Road will be constructed to make it more convenient for citizens to go outside.
It is reported that the underground non-motor vehicle lane is divided into two parts: one part is located under Huaiyin Avenue and connected with Houhu Park and West Ring Road; the other part is located under the section from Houhu East Road to Huaiyin Avenue of Houhu East Road. In these two sections, the full length of non-motor vehicle lane is about 267 meters and the building area is 711 square meters. There are 4 passages of this lane in which 2 passages are for non-motor vehicles and located at Houhu East Road and West Ring Road; the other 2 passages of pedestrians are respectively located at the gate of Houhu Park and opposite side of the park.
The underground non-motor vehicle lane is fully invested by Xiaogan New Cooperation Underground Space Development Co., Ltd. and the total investment is about 7 million yuan. After the lane is constructed, it will be open to citizens for free. As introduced by the company’s principal, the company will undertake another underground project consisting of several underground street passages at Chengzhan Road. After these two underground projects are constructed, we will alleviate traffic pressure along the line, improve traffic order and thus increase the passing capacity.
