Old community replaced with "new outfits"
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- On October 21, the transformed Shuanggang Road community, located in Daxigou Street, Yuzhong District, became beautiful and refreshing, and the once “dirty and messy” vegetable market became a cultural corridor.
There are 34 residential houses in Shuanggang Road community. In the past, there were many problems like the underlying fire safety hazards, poor environment, and dilapidated infrastructure. However, nowadays, the Shuanggang Road community is not only paved with permeable floor tiles and planted with various flowers and plants, but also implemented with badminton courts, plastic fitness trails and other facilities.
According to investigations, there are 7394 old communities built before 2000, with poor services, backward public facilities, and residents living there hold strong willingness to renovate their communities. Up to now, Chongqing has initiated the renovation of 1842 old communities. In 2020, Chongqing plans to transform 729 old communities. Up to now, 631 projects have been under transformation, with an operating rate of 86.56%. (Photo provided by Chongqing Municipal Commission of Housing and Urban-Rural Development Committee)
