SZ-Zhongshan link plan unveiled


A computerized image of Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor.SD-Agencies

SHENZHEN motorists could reach the city of Zhongshan, on the west side of the Pearl River, in 30 minutes from Xixiang, Bao’an District, when the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor project is completed by 2021.
The trip currently takes at least an hour.
The design plan and environmental impact report for the much-desired road to the western Pearl River Delta have been unveiled on www.gdcd.gov.cn, the official Web site of the Guangdong Provincial Transport Department, for the second round of public reviews and comment, Chinese-language media reported yesterday.
Construction of the 51-km project will start in 2015. The project mainly includes a 6.72-kilometer tunnel starting on the Shenzhen side of the river and 19 bridges with a total length of 42.7 kilometers. The road will have four lanes in each direction, with a designed speed limit of 100 kilometers per hour.
Reports released this week said the tunnel plan will significantly reduce the project’s environmental impacts.
The road will connect Huanghe Flyover in Xixiang, Bao’an District in Shenzhen, with Xinlong Flyover in Zhongshan.
The project’s feasibility study is expected to be finished in March 2013, with approval likely by June 2014.
The State Council approved the road as a key project in the Outline of the Plan for the Reform and Development of the Pearl River Delta for 2008-2020. The road also was included in Guangdong’s 12th five-year plan and is estimated to cost 30 billion yuan (US$4.76 billion).
The initial plan to build a transportation corridor connecting the two cities across the Pearl River arose six years ago, when Humen Bridge, the overland link between Shenzhen and the western part of the Pearl River Delta area, started becoming frequently overloaded and jammed because of its limited capacity. The number of vehicles using Humen Bridge has increased an average of 11.5 percent annually since it was opened in 1997. As of 2010, the bridge handled 88,000 vehicles a day. (Han Ximin)

Road project affects drivers to Dapeng
2012-November-20 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

DRIVERS traveling from downtown Shenzhen to Dapeng Peninsula on the city’s east side will need to use Kuipeng and Jinsha roads until next spring, as Pingxi Road will soon be closed for an expansion project.

Shenzhen’s transport commission said transport authorities are preparing to close the Diefu Flyover section of Pingxi Road and Helong Road, to allow for expansion of Helong Road and the construction of overpasses that will connect with Pingxi Road.

The commission didn’t specify when the closure would begin, as it was waiting for approval from Shenzhen traffic police.

Drivers to Nan’ao and Dapeng should instead use Kuipeng and Jinsha roads, via the Guanhu Flyover. The Leigong Hill and Diefu Hill tunnels on Pingxi Road also will be closed for the project.

Helong Road, the only road linking Daya Bay and the local nuclear power plant with downtown Shenzhen, will be partly opened after the Spring Festival early next year. Pingxi Road will be fully open in May next year, with four lanes in each direction. The whole project, including the new overpasses, will be completed by next October, transport authorities said.

Helong Road currently is a two-lane road with many curves, steep slopes and poor lines of sight for drivers. Traffic jams and accidents often occur on the road and increase traffic around Dapeng Peninsula, especially during tourism season.

The Pingxi Road overpass above Helong Road will be dismantled and replaced by two new overpasses, with a total length of 2.21 kilometers. Helong Road will be expanded into four lanes.

Xincai tunnel project starts
2012-November-21 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

SHENZHEN’S transport commission has started a tunnel project on Xincai Passage, which links Caitian Road in Futian District with Xinqu Boulevard in Longhua New Area.

Xincai Passage, also known as the northern extension of Caitian Road, will provide a new north-south connection between Futian’s CBD and developed clusters to the north.

The 3.25-km Xincai Passage will include a 1.8-km tunnel through Meilin Mountain and flyovers connecting with Caitian and Huanggang roads.

The project is expected to greatly relieve traffic at Meilin Checkpoint and allow commuters from Longhua and Minzhi to downtown Shenzhen to avoid traffic jams at the checkpoint when the two-way, six-lane road opens in 2014, commission members said.

Work will start in December on the interchange flyover for Caitian and Huanggang roads and the tunnel.

When the interchange flyover is completed, drivers to Bantian and Meiguan Expressway via Meilin Checkpoint will be able to drive directly onto the overpass near Caitian Gas Station. Motorists to Longhua and Minzhi will be able to drive through the tunnel to avoid jams at the north end of Caitian Road. Vehicles from Longhua that use the tunnel could be directly diverted onto Caitian or Huanggang roads via the overpasses.

Looks like it is a mix of commercial and residential uses, skewed towards more residentials? Is there an existing subway connection already?

Rail station roadwork coming
2012-November-28 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

Buji Metro Station Shenzhen China by dcmaster, on Flickr

SHENZHEN’S transport commission plans to expand Zhongxing Road and connect it with Tiexi Road, Tiedong Road and Qingping Expressway, to eventually make Zhongxing a major access route to Shenzhen East Railway Station, which is scheduled to open before the Spring Festival.

The commission also plans to renovate Longgang Boulevard and Jihua Road to improve traffic flows in the Longgang District area. No timeline has been given for the planned roadwork.

Some residents worry that traffic in Buji Subdistrict will get worse after Shenzhen East Railway Station opens, as Longgang Boulevard and Jihua Road are often jammed already.

Shenzhen East Railway Station, previously known as Buji Railway Station, will integrate Metro services, long-distance buses, inner-city buses and taxi services.

Passengers will be diverted mainly through Metro’s Huanzhong and Longgang lines. There are four bus routes at the railway station’s eastern square. Two more routes will be open at its western square by the time the station opens.

SZ to start work sooner on new Metro lines
2012-December-7 08:53
Shenzhen Daily



SHENZHEN’S rail authority may start construction work on future Metro lines 6 and 16 ahead of schedule, in an effort to relieve pressure on the crowded Longhua Line.

The southern end of Metro Line 6, an extension to original plans for the unbuilt line, will either go along Xinzhou Road, Caitian Road or Shangbu Road.

According to Chen Qiang, an official with the city’s rail construction office, the 37.85-kilometer south-north Metro Line 6 will start from Shenzhen North Station and pass through Longhua, Shiyan, Guangming and Gongming before ending at Songgang in Bao’an District. It will connect with Futian District’s CBD and Hong Kong through Longhua Line.

Construction of Metro Line 6 will start after financing is finalized. Authorities are considering whether to include part of the line’s funding in the city’s Phase III rail construction plan.

The rail authority will also try to advance the construction of Line 16 from the original start date of 2014. The Y-shaped line, temporarily named Bantian Line, will start in the Futian Free Trade Zone and end in Pinghu in Longgang District and Guanlan in Longhua New Area. The line will play an important role in industrial development in central Shenzhen.

“The line will be the only line covering Bantian and Pinghu. Without this line, transportation infrastructure couldn’t satisfy commuting needs, even after the completion of Xincai Tunnel and Panyin Passage,” Xue Bo, president of Shenzhen Urban Transportation Planning Institute, said Wednesday.

In the city’s third-phase rail construction, lines 6, 7, 8, 9 and 11 will add a total length of 171.5 kilometers to the city’s rail network. When the third phase is completed in 2016, the city’s total rail length will reach 350 kilometers and the network will carry 38 percent of passengers using local public transportation.

The south entrance of Wongtee Plaza is taking shape. The huge screen you can see is also switched on sometimes.

City to add 8,000 beds for the elderly
2012-December-27 08:53
Shenzhen Daily

SHENZHEN plans to add more than 8,000 beds for the elderly at its local welfare centers, according to a newly released government report.

Statistics show the number of holders of Shenzhen hukou, permanent residency permits, in Shenzhen who are 60 or older has reached 154,000 and the elderly population without hukou is nearly 420,000. The current amount of public accommodation for the elderly is insufficient to meet the needs of such a population. Beds at local nursing homes have been fully reserved for the next few years, according to the city’s civil affairs bureau

More than 30 lawmakers in the city have proposed to improve the service for the elderly this year.

According to the city government’s plan, a comprehensive service center for the elderly will be established. After completion, the service center will offer 700 beds and give professional care and rehabilitation to low-income elderly people who live alone and don’t have the ability to take care of themselves.

Social welfare centers at each of the 10 districts and new areas will be expanded, which will add a total of 2,150 beds for the elderly. Four Shenzhen-based enterprises have planned to invest 1.6 billion yuan (US$257 million) in building new nursing homes for the elderly in the city, which will add another 5,300 beds.

Yes most of the towers are residential with retail spaces at the podium level. The row of towers facing the main Shennan Road will be offices and retail. Metro's Shekou line and Huanzhong line has an interchange station there.

I thought Shenzhen already has a large CBD?
Is this one nearer Guangzhou or the border with HK or something?
