CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- The reporter from Chongqing Daily learned from Chongqing Housing and Urban Rural Construction Commission that the Quality Improvement Project for three bridges, namely Qiansimen Bridge, Dongshuimen Bridge and Chaotianmen Bridge, has recently been fully launched, adding new highlights to the “Two Rivers and Four Banks”.
The Quality Improvement Project for Cross-river Bridges in the main urban districts is one of the important initiatives of Chongqing to build the “most beautiful bridge city”. The Quality Improvement Project for Qiansimen Bridge will extend the urban balcony at the Hongyadong side of the bridge, build a new platform space under the bridge, add escalators, upgrade the painting, replace the pavement, and construct a number of ancillary works such as lighting, signage and convenience facilities. While enhancing the convenience of pedestrians, it will also help to ease the flow of people in Hongyadong and improve the quality of the slow-moving space in the area.
The Quality Improvement Project for Dongshuimen Bridge will add escalators and vertical lifts at the side of the Huguang Guild Hall on Changbin Road in Yuzhong District to connect the bridge and form a three-dimensional circulation of slow traffic; at the side of Longmenhao Old Street in Nanan District, the vertical lift project will connect Longmenhao Old Street Phase I and Phase II to form a unified area style and give the space under the bridge a “new look”. So far, the main works of the escalator and barrier-free landscape walkway connecting the upper and lower city at the north end of the Dongshuimen Bridge have been largely completed and are expected to be put into use during the National Day Holiday.
The Quality Improvement Project for Chaotianmen Bridge will build new vertical lifts on both sides of the Chaotianmen Bridge to activate the feature space under the bridge, solving the vertical traffic difficulties of the pedestrian system on both sides of the bridge while comprehensively improving the quality of life of the surrounding citizens and providing more options for citizens and tourists.
