Model city construction framework to be formed by 2025
The master plan contains a schedule for the development of the new town. By 2025, a transport corridor along the river featuring rail transit, expressways and urban trunk roads will be built. By 2035, areas for urban cooperation, international headquarters, scientific research and development, shared innovation and cultural experience will be further expanded. By 2050, a modern city with international influence and Chinese characteristics will be built up.
The master plan has further identified the need to focus on cultivating three core functions in the new town: intelligent innovation, financial technology and international exchanges.
The plan has also studied the launch of rail transit lines
20 and 27, and the construction of transportation hubs at Shenjiaji, Wuhu and Yangluo. A
5G experimental base will be built in the new town and put into commercial use. An urban optical fiber network will be constructed to form the world's first "all-optical" city.
