Thanks for the update from Qianhai... I was wondering what's going on there since there weren't many news or updates. Should we expect something like Tianjin Binhai situation with a gazillion of new skyscrapers popping up?

Yeah, but probably not that tall since it's partly in the air corridor of the airport.

City to spend RMB3b on water pipes
2012-September-13 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

MORE than 60 percent of Shenzhen’s water supply pipelines could be corroded and the first phase of repairs could take five years and cost 3 billion yuan (US$476 million), city water authorities said, signaling an enormous slate of upcoming water infrastructure projects across the city.

Corroded pipelines causing poor water quality out of residential taps could affect nearly 1.4 million households across Shenzhen, according to government data.

The Shenzhen Municipal Water Affairs Bureau first addressed the problem in 2010, when the bureau announced a large-scale plan to upgrade the city’s water supply pipelines and improve local drinking water. A pilot project to that end started yesterday in Yantian District’s Shatoujiao area.

Bureau authorities stressed that drinking water supplied to Shenzhen — at its sources — is high-quality water that meets new national standards. But when that water passes through pipelines in local communities and flows out of taps in homes and businesses, it has more than likely picked up contaminants in transit.

That’s because water supply pipes currently used in most Shenzhen communities are made of galvanized steel or cast iron, which can corrode over time and contaminate water with excess deposits of rust, calcium, lead and more. Galvanized steel and cast iron pipes have been banned in China.

According to Shenzhen water bureau statistics compiled in 2010, 63.2 percent of the city’s underground pipelines, 68.8 percent of its outdoor pipelines and 43.5 percent of its indoor pipelines were made of galvanized steel or cast iron, covering 2,460 residential communities and affecting 1.35 million households.

To replace or repair all of the city’s aging pipes would cost 6.25 billion yuan, the water bureau said. The resulting project will be carried out in two phases. The first phase will be completed in three to five years and cost about 3 billion yuan.

Some of them do look tall in the visuals that we've seen before. Definitely at least one serious supertall. Or should we not expect supertalls there?

It will be at a similar scale or even bigger than Binhai New Area CBD. At least 1 500m+ and multiple supertalls.

OCT Shenzhen Clubhouse / Richard Meier Architects

Architects: Richard Meier Architects
Location: OCT Shenzhen Clubhouse,Shenzhen, China
Project Year: 2012
Photographs: Roland Halbe

Richard Meier & Partners is proud to announce the first completed project in Shenzhen, China. Sited on a prominent island in the middle of the OCT harbor lake, the new OCT Shenzhen Clubhouse will provide guests and members with a restaurant, private dining suites, a multi-purpose area, as well as recreational facilities, a fitness center and a small exhibition gallery.

The geometry of the Clubhouse follows a precise focal point from which “layers” of distinct spaces radiate and terminate in a sweeping curve that is seen from the Cultural and Entertainment Center across the water. At the south end of the island, linked to the Clubhouse by an outdoor pathway and garden, is the structure that houses the Indoor Pool and Fitness Center. The simple geometry of the Fitness Center contrasts with the adjacent Clubhouse in scale and form, providing a balance with the extroverted outline of the Clubhouse and stimulating the dialogue between the two structures.

The meandering paths through the gardens of the Clubhouse evoke a strong sense of the Chinese landscape philosophy. Various vistas, textures, flowers and settings offer an opportunity for solitude, as well as platforms to admire the surrounding views of the water and the harbor entertainment complexes beyond.

The firm’s guiding principles of metal panel and mastery of natural light define the building. The shift of natural light throughout the day animates the interior of the clubhouse revealing different spaces and the crisp surfaces of the OCT Shenzhen Clubhouse. The dramatic planes and natural light shape the space, mark the passage of time and the presence of the sky.

32 unfinished roads to be done by 2013
2012-September-14 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

THE city government has vowed to complete 88 unfinished roads within three years, including 32 of them this year.

Most of those 32 roads are in Longgang and Bao’an districts.

Most of the projects involve road sections where construction has stalled because of land requisition and relocation disputes. The unfinished roads, generally just short sections, have delayed citywide roadwork plans and reduced the efficiency of the city’s road network, local transportation officials said.

Huang Min, head of the city’s transportation commission, said unfinished roads not only cause commuting difficulties for residents, but also inconvenience nearby businesses and enterprises.

The transportation commission will also spend 300 million yuan (US$47 million) this year on infrastructure to improve traffic conditions in 60 areas, including Jingtian, Lianhuabei, Zhuzilin and Chegongmiao.

Did any of you ever heard about "Choi Tak City"? I was passing by an adverb near the exhibiton center and it seems to be another shopping mall. Any ideas/information/location?

Cheers

30-year river treatment going strong
2012-October-11 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

A TREATMENT project for the Shenzhen River, the 37-kilometer waterway between Shenzhen and Hong Kong, is scheduled to start its fourth stage next year.

The fourth stage of the cooperative project between Shenzhen and Hong Kong would affect a section of river about 4,400 meters long, Shenzhen Economic Daily reported yesterday. The project’s previous three stages have improved environmental conditions and transportation corridors along 18 kilometers of the river.

The fourth stage is designed to prepare the section of river near Liantang in Luohu District for the theoretical “50-year flood,” or the worst flood in any 50-year period.

The fourth stage is scheduled to start in the middle of next year and finish in 2017.

Shenzhen and Hong Kong began planning the fourth stage in April 2008, in an effort to provide a sound ecological environment for a planned checkpoint in Liantang.

Tuesday marked the 30th anniversary of cooperation between Shenzhen and Hong Kong to treat the border river.

The first three stages of the treatment project cost HK$2 billion (US$258 million) and raised the flood discharge capacity of the river’s lower reaches from 600 cubic meters per second to 2,100 cubic meters per second.

Shenzhen Mayor Xu Qin said at Tuesday’s anniversary ceremony that as a large cross-border infrastructure effort between Shenzhen and Hong Kong, the Shenzhen River treatment project is a successful model for cooperation between the two cities.

Carrie Lam, Hong Kong’s chief secretary for administration, said at the ceremony that Shenzhen and Hong Kong are expected to see closer cooperation in various fields.

Officials of the two cities viewed an exhibition that reviewed the past 30 years of the river treatment project, and awarded 10 people who had made outstanding contributions, according to the Economic Daily.

Thousands of trees to be relocated
2012-October-22 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

SHENZHEN will relocate about 50,000 trees to make way for construction of new Metro lines, in the largest tree transplantation project in the city’s history.

Most of the trees to be relocated from designated Metro line areas are 5 to 10 years old. Urban management officials said about 90 percent of the relocated trees will survive the transplant. But local arborists said relocated trees usually develop unstable roots and can get irrevocably damaged in the process.

Construction of Metro Line 7 is under way and some trees along Xiangmei Road and Binhai Boulevard are being relocated. Those trees will be transplanted in nearby areas of greenery, the Qianhai area and on the campus of South University of Science and Technology of China. The relocation project will last into next spring.

Huang Gong, with the urban management bureau’s greenery office, said the 50,000 to-be-relocated trees fall into more than 100 tree species, but none of the trees are rare or unusually old. He said a camphor tree near Yinhu Bus Station that’s more than 100 years old had been on the relocation list, but Huang’s office persuaded the contractor to alter the line a little bit, saving the tree. Huang said his office would try to relocate as few trees as possible.

Some of the trees on the relocation list were planted during last year’s Universiade. Huang Chongyuan, with the city’s landscape architecture association, said those trees could get flattened by a typhoon if they were relocated, because of their young age and shallow root systems.

Li Nan, a local expert in botany and the environment, said a tree’s age, species and transplantation techniques would affect its life expectancy after relocation. Li added that this fall’s dry weather won’t help.

U-turn overpasses under construction in Bao’an


A computer-generated image of the two U-turn overpasses.


CONSTRUCTION of two U-turn overpasses started Thursday at the Xinghua and Liyuan intersections with National Highway 107 in Bao’an District.
The two intersections, in the Xingwei and Huangtian areas, are the only intersections along the Shenzhen section of the national highway. There will be no traffic lights along the highway’s 31-km section in Shenzhen after the overpasses are put into use, the transport commission said. The Shenzhen section of the national highway will run from Nantou Checkpoint in the south to Songgang Tollgate in the north after the overpasses are opened, the commission added. The section will provide an alternative route to Shenzhen International Airport.
The overpasses are each about 330 meters long and are expected to greatly improve traffic efficiency and reduce jams on the highway.

Only a single-lane U-turn overpass? Wouldn't that cause a lot of congestion before the exit?

Pipeline work closes shipping route
2012-October-29
Shenzhen Daily

DACHAN Waterway, a primary navigation route in Shenzhen’s western sea area, will be closed to ships until Nov. 8 for the final, underwater stage of construction of a major gas pipeline to Hong Kong.

Hong Kong residents will likely be able to access the pipeline and use what officials call cleaner gas, from Turkmenistan and Xinjiang, by the end of the year.

Shenzhen Maritime Administration officials said Saturday that the underwater pipeline project covers about 30 kilometers and is designed to transport 6 billion cubic meters of gas a year. The first stage of the project, between Qiuyuling Pumping Station and Dachandao in Shenzhen, has been completed. The second, underwater stage crosses the Dachan, Tonggu and Gongsha waterways, the administration said.

The administration has opened a temporary waterway near Dachan Waterway to divert ships. Vessels of less than 3,000 tons can use Dachanbei Waterway during pipeline construction, while vessels greater than 3,000 tons have to change routes and use the Lingding navigation route and Longguxi Waterway.

The project will affect about 700 vessels, most of which are small or medium-sized.

The underwater project is the final stage of the country’s second major, west-to-east pipeline project, which spans 8,600 kilometers through 13 Chinese provinces and regions. The completed pipeline will carry natural gas from Turkmenistan and Xinjiang to the Yangtze and Pearl river deltas, the country’s two most economically developed regions.

The entire project has the capacity to transmit 30 billion cubic meters of natural gas annually, with a minimum life span of 30 years.

China’s first west-east pipeline carries 12 billion cubic meters of natural gas annually from the Tarim Basin of Xinjiang to Shanghai. It was completed in 2004.

City to boost urban upgrade funding

THE city government plans to spend about 2.9 billion yuan (US$465 million) more than originally planned this year for improvements in areas including Bao’an, Longgang, Pingshan, Guangming, Dapeng and Longhua.
The additional funding will boost the city’s spending in these areas to about 38.33 billion yuan this year, about 6.4 percent higher than originally planned and accounting for 83.1 percent of this year’s total spending on urban improvements, Xu Anliang, head of the city’s development and reform commission, said Sunday.
Most of the money will be used for key, large-scale projects.
This year’s total government spending on urban improvements will remain at 46.1 billion yuan after the adjustment.

Sea-view bridges delayed by design changes
2012-October-30 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

DESIGN changes have halted construction of two trestle bridges in the Binhai Leisure Belt along Shenzhen Bay until next March, city public works officials said yesterday.

The project includes two trestle bridges and a pier near Shenzhen Bay Bridge and has been billed as one of the city’s most high-profile construction efforts this year. The project’s total cost could reach nearly 48 million yuan (US$7.6 million).

Construction started last December and was planned to conclude this December. But many residents have noticed that work has proceeded very slowly since May. The project has been halted for more than a month, leaving more than 70 foundation piles on the site and causing some residents to worry that what’s intended as a scenic public walkway over the water will become just another uncompleted project in the city.

Project director Huang Zemin, with the city’s public works bureau, said the design changes moved the project several steps backward.

“The planned locations of the bridges have changed. That means the geological and stress conditions in the new locations need to be restudied,” Huang said.

He added that work will resume next March and is scheduled for completion in early 2014.

Stretching as far as 250 meters into the ocean, the bridges, if completed, would offer residents a new place to enjoy sea views.
