More mountain city footpaths to be constructed in the second half of this year
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Recently, a reporter from Chongqing Morning Post learned that the construction of mountain city footpath will be incorporated into the municipal key goals and tasks for people’s livelihood. Among the 17 key characteristic mountain city footpaths, the construction of 12 footpaths has been started, and the length of about 136km has been completed.
In 2020, the construction of seven characteristic mountain city footpaths are key, such as Nanshan Footpath in Nan’an District and Chongqing Iron and Steel Footpath in Dadukou District. The other five are speeding up the preliminary work and striving to start construction in the second half of the year.
Chongqing Iron and Steel Footpath
The first “aerobic runway on cliff line” in main urban areas
Chongqing Iron and Steel Footpath: It is about 22 km in length. The route starts from Taohuaxi Footpath in Jiulongpo District (planned) in the north, extends along the Chongqing Steel Cliff Line to the south, and ends at Yidu Park in Dadukou District. The construction duration is from 2020 to 2022.
There are Chongqing Industrial Museum, Yidu Ancient Town, Sui and Tang Dynasty Park, Siyuan Park and Yidu Park around the cliff line.
The plan design of Chongqing Iron and Steel Footpath combines the topography of the cliff line and the planning of the area, with one side facing the cliff and one side watching the river, which fully reflects the characteristics of the cliff line watching the river. The main idea of the footpath design is to build a high-quality mountain city footpath with Chongqing characteristics as the purpose, to build the first “aerobic runway on the cliff line” in the main urban areas of Chongqing, and the first “air runway on the roof” in western China. The project plans to start construction within this year.

Southwest Region Footpath
The preliminary plan has been completed and the design is being improved
