75% filthy water in Nanshan treated
Aug 15, 2017
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

ABOUT 75 percent of blackened and stinky rivers in Nanshan District have been treated, and water environment quality has been improved significantly. The task of water governance is expected to be completed ahead of schedule, according to the local authority, the Southern Metropolis Daily reported.

In recent years, Nanshan District has attached great importance to the treatment of blackened and stinky rivers. It is estimated that city and district governments have invested 11 billion yuan (US$165 million) on water treatment in Nanshan, showcasing their unprecedented determination to tackle this problem.

It is reported that four rivers in Nanshan District needed water treatment: Houhai River, Guimiao River, Chanwan River and Shuangjie River. The rivers have become polluted mainly due to poor hydrodynamic conditions, a lack of environmental capacity, solid waste, construction waste, mud and other non-point pollutants, and point source pollution such as rain and sewage diversion.

Houhai River has been completely deodorized and is clear. The main project on Guimiao River has been completed and Chanwan River and Shuangjie River will also receive remediation.

Houhai River is the first of the city’s 133 polluted rivers to be completely renovated.

“Houhai River smelled terrible before. Its water was black like ink in the daytime. But now it has a whole new look,” said a resident living in Baoneng All-City estate.

Now that the environment of Houhai River is good, she often takes her children to run along the river. Meanwhile, more and more residents in the area are also taking walks near the river, making the area lively.

Meanwhile, 370 residential drainage network transformation projects in the district have been completed, accounting for 35 percent of the city’s residential drainage projects, with 500 projects planned to be finished this year.

SZ-Jiangmen rail to adopt tunnel plan
Sept. 19, 2017
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

AUTHORITIES have agreed to adopt a plan to build a tunnel under the Pearl River for the Shenzhen-Jiangmen section of the Shenzhen-Maoming High-speed Railway.

At a meeting with Shenzhen lawmakers, who were visiting Jiangmen to inspect the rail project, it was announced that the construction of the tunnel will start before the end of this year and that the rail project between Shenzhen and Jiangmen will commence in 2018.

Construction of the Shenzhen-Jiangmen section has been delayed due to the complicated geographic conditions of the mouth of the Pearl River and a lack of consensus over whether to build a bridge or a tunnel between the two sides of the Pearl River.

According to a report by the Southern Metropolis Daily quoting a notice from China Railway Siyuan Survey and Design Group Co. Ltd., the authorities have approved the construction of a 14.05-kilometer tunnel under the Pearl River.

The Shenzhen-Jiangmen section will have six stations including Xili Station and Airport North Station.

Xili Station will have 11 platforms and 22 lines. It will be the terminus of both the Shenzhen-Maoming High-speed Railway and the Ganzhou-Shenzhen High-speed Railway. The Shenzhen-Huizhou intercity rail, as well as Metro lines 13, 15 and 29, will connect with the station.

The 115.6-km Shenzhen-Jiangmen section will cost 65.2 billion yuan (US$9.88 billion) and is expected to be completed in mid-2023.

Corridor tunnel plan passes review
Oct. 19, 2017
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

THE tunnel construction plan for the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor has passed an expert review and will be handed to the provincial transportation department for approval, according to a release from the Guangdong Transportation Group on Tuesday.

A world-class project that links city clusters to the east with the west bank of the Pearl River, the corridor is comprised of a 6.8-km tunnel, two artificial islands and two suspension bridges.

The tube tunnel will be the world’s widest immersed tunnel, with eight traffic lanes in two directions and boast a capacity of 90,000 cars per day.

According to Song Shenyou, chief engineer with the Shenzhen-Zhongshan Corridor Management Center, the tunnel project is one of the most challenging projects in the world as the unstable geological condition and the amount of siltation are factors affecting the project. The tubes will be immersed 40 meters under the water.

The 46-billion-yuan (US$6.76 billion) project will connect Shenzhen with Zhongshan and Jiangmen, cutting more than 100 kilometers off the current journey from Shenzhen to the western part of the Pearl River Delta. After the corridor is completed in 2024, a single trip to Zhongshan from Shenzhen will be cut to 30 minutes.

Monorail to be put into use next year
Nov 15, 2017
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

THE much-anticipated monorail in Pingshan District will be put into use next year, while the municipal government has also approved the construction of Metro Lines 14 and 16, according to Tao Yongxin, head of the Pingshan District Government.

Tao gave an interview last week where he answered a few netizens’ questions regarding some of the latest updates to the district’s plans.

The public transportation plan was one of the most concerning questions raised by netizens. Tao replied that the district has been working closely with relevant departments to enhance the public transportation system in Pingshan and hopes to bring convenience to residents living in the district.

It has been approved that the construction of Metro Lines 14 and 16 will start next year. Metro Line 14 will connect Pingshan to downtown Shenzhen and Line 16 will link Pingshan with Longgang District and have 11 Metro stations.

Also, Pingshan District hopes that the to-be-built Metro Line 21 will be extended to the high-tech industrial park in Pingshan. Metro Line 19 is also expected to pass through Pingshan, said Tao.

904-meter tunnel project completed
Nov 24, 2017
Shenzhen Daily

THE Steel Dragon Explorer tunnel boring machine (TBM) on Thursday completed the tunnel for the new Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center, which will be the largest exhibition center in the world upon completion.

The tunnel, which runs 904 meters, passes beneath the present Metro Line 11. The TBM started its work June 20 and passed through high-risk areas eight times over 156 days and nights to complete the mission.

The general contractor, China Railway Construction Southern Corp. Ltd., and its engineering contractor, China Railway 11th Bureau Group, were recognized with an award for their remarkable achievements Thursday.

According to project vice manager, Li Hong, the project’s nearest point to Metro Line 11 was within 2.4 meters. The work on the 100-meter section that runs under Line 11 was similar to a high-risk, precision surgery near an artery. The work could have easily caused a cave-in when the TBM passed under a complicated layer of soil. In a serious situation, it could have caused rail and contact wire deformation, which might have led to the suspension of Metro trains.

The city’s rail administration office, Metro operator and contractors held 20 expert meetings concerning the engineering plan and introduced a simultaneous slip casting system as the TBM progressed. The contractors also introduced an industry-leading monitoring system to monitor the subsidence situation 24 hours a day and adjust the operation index of the TBM when necessary. Subsidence was controlled within the target of 6 millimeters.

Work on the new Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center, said to be the world’s largest facility for exhibitions, started in September last year.

The whole project in the Greater Airport Area of Bao’an District will be completed in September 2018.

Its indoor space will reach 500,000 square meters, five times the size of the present Shenzhen Convention and Exhibition Center in Futian District.
