‘Air cor­ri­dors’ planned to curb pol­lu­tion

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

Bei­jing will is­sue a new ur­ban plan­ning strat­egy by the end of this year that will for the first time con­tain a plan to pre­serve large and green “air cor­ri­dors”.

An ur­ban air cor­ri­dor is a new field be­ing re­searched by eco­log­i­cal de­part­ments both at the city and na­tional lev­els.

Liu Chun­lan of the Bei­jing Re­search In­sti­tute of En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion said the cor­ri­dors will be wide tracts of land along the di­rec­tion of Bei­jing’s pre­vail­ing winds that could help dis­perse pol­lu­tants and hot air.
