Changjiang Weekly - - TOP NEWS -

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.
