Citizens and tourists enjoy the beauty of “flat lake” along the river
During the water storage period, Wanzhou was surrounded by lakes and mountains. Along the Binjiang Road, a lot of people came here to see the “sea”. Recently, many tourists have come to appreciate the beautiful scenery of flat lake brought by water storage.
Looking forward, you will see the vast and flat river, mountains and rivers reflecting each other. When night fell, standing by the river, you can see a river with clear water reflecting the colorful lights on both sides of the north and the south, sparkling, making the night of Wanzhou more beautiful. Some landmark buildings and high-rise buildings such as Wanzhou Pailou Yangtze River Bridge were shining brightly. Beautiful neon lights reflected in the water, like waving ribbons, surrounded by the two sides of the Yangtze River with water wave after wave. The colorful river flew from wave to wave, moving and joyful.

A 10,000-ton ship could go directly to Wanzhou Port
Recently, a huge ship with 10,000 tons of cargo successfully entered Hongxigou Wharf of Wanzhou Port along the wide water surface of the Three Gorges Reservoir Area. According to the relevant person in charge of Wanzhou Port and Navigation Bureau, after the completion of water storage in the Three Gorges Reservoir Area, the average width of the waterway would increase, and the waterway from the Three Gorges Dam to Chongqing Port will become smooth. The obstructed navigation reef in the upper reaches of the river will be submerged and navigation conditions will be improved.
"That is to say, a 10,000-ton ship can go directly to Wanzhou Port." According to him, at present, the resistances of ships have been reduced when they went up in the Three Gorges Reservoir Area, and the speed of going up and down were basically the same.
