Kunming is going to launch the project to upgrade 62 roads in main urban area, built 79 public toilets and 66 floral displays, update landscape lighting, and demolish illegal buildings, in order to improve the appearance of the city in 2020.
UPGRADING OF 62 ROADS WILL BE COMPLETED BEFORE AUG. 30
Since last year, Kunming has began to upgrade 62 main roads, sub-roads, lanes and old residential areas. All the 62 roads will be upgraded by August 30 this year.
In aspect of lighting, areas like backstreets, parks and tunnels will be paid more attentions. More efforts will be made to upgrade landscape lighting of four interchanges, Dongfeng Road, West Renmin Road, Guangfu Road, Dianchi Road, Daguan Park, and Caohai Dam, as a way to boost its night-time economy.
In addition, Kunming will build 79 public toilets and rebuild 52 toilets , which will be free for the public to use.
LAUNCHING GARBAGE SORTING PILOT ON 90% OF THE STREETS
Kunming will carry out a pilot program to gear up household waste sorting on 90% of the streets of the city and all the streets in other counties. Kitchen waste disposal facilities will be set up near communities, business districts and residential areas.
For those domestic waste generated in the city, Kunming will step up efforts to clean them up, and accelerate the construction of waste incineration plants, landfills and other sanitation projects, and meet the demand of harmless disposal of household garbage in the next 5 to 15 years.
DEMOLISHING ILLEGAL BUILDINGS
Kunming will focus on the control of illegal buildings along high-speed railway, along expressway, around entrance to the city, around scenic spots, around Dianchi Lake and Yangzonghai Lake.
Moreover, Kunming plans to set up 66 floral displays and 15.67 million potted flower in main urban area, and build themed flower parks and flower viewing areas. From October to November this year, Kunming will invite well-known flower enterprises from home and abroad to hold the first mosaiculture competition and display 100 mosaiculture work in the city.
