Public deserves detailed explanations of mega projects
25 December 2015
China Daily



GUANGZHOU, capital of South China's Guangdong province, is reportedly reviewing the plan to build 15 new subway lines prior to 2030 at a cost nearly 500 billion yuan ($77 billion). Beijing News calls for proper public scrutiny and participation in the plan to make sure the project is both viable and properly managed:

Of course, Guangzhou's construction of the biggest ever subway system, if it goes as planned, may greatly alleviate not only congestion on the roads but also public concerns about urban management. However, any grand urban planning project requires in-depth research, targeted assessments and policies that take into account public opinions and involve the public's participation.

That being said, there are doubts about Guangzhou's subway construction plan that need to be addressed, and residents' opinions need to be carefully listened to and heeded.

How the local governments involved will solicit and use funds, as well as how they will repay the huge debts to be expected, should be made perfectly clear to the public in a responsible manner.

Universally known as money consuming and slow to produce returns, subway construction is not feasible simply through the sales of the land, which is why such missing information in the introduction to Guangzhou's unprecedented subway expansion has worried many.

As an advanced first-tier city in China, Guangzhou is supposed to enroll private capital in major urban infrastructure projects, instead of "considering the possibility of using private capital when necessary". This is to both relieve the financial burden on the local government and make better use of idle money.

In fact, subway construction is not only about a modern city's future development and its residents' well-being, it is also a reflection of a local government's determination and wisdom in the face of challenges. The Guangzhou government, therefore, should think proactively and prevent the will of a few officials from spoiling the decision-making process.

Guangzhou banks on new approach
4 August 2016
China Daily

The first pilot site for a "sponge city" project in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong province, started on July 2. The project, located in the Tianhe district, involves transforming a lake into a wetland park. The move is expected to reduce the volume of stormwater in the city by about 180,000 cubic meters every time a heavy storm occurs.

Torrents descending from the Baiyun Mountain range in the city will be purified and reduced in force after running through vegetation and a dozen ponds in the wetland park. Stormwater will also seep through permeable ground tiles into underground storage spaces and finally run down into a lower reservoir.

"Reducing the buildup of water requires a new way of thinking. We should try to gradually minimize the volume of floodwater at the source rather than trying to drain stormwater quickly by expanding the pipe network without limits," said Kuang Juanjuan, deputy director of the design and research institute at the Guangzhou Water Affairs Bureau.

In urban centers where limited land resources mean there is no space for large wetland parks, Kuang advised the use of permeable paving slabs in parks, public squares and living compounds to reduce surface runoff effectively.

At a conference in January, the water affairs bureau prioritized the plan to build a sponge city this year. On June 29, the standing committee of the city's People's Congress approved the Guangzhou Eco-civilization Development Plan (2016-20), which aims to ensure that the city's downtown can withstand a "once-in-50-years storm" and a "once-in-200-years flood" by 2020.

To achieve that, new construction projects will be required to ensure that at least 40 percent of sidewalks, squares and roads are made from permeable materials. In addition, the city will redesign drainage systems in areas prone to waterlogging and will also study the feasibility of deep-tunnel drainage systems.
