Huzhou plans to start construction of light rail transit system in 2021.
In 2017, the resident population of Huzhou City was 1.666 million, the city's GDP was 246.7 billion yuan, and the local fiscal revenue was 23.7 billion yuan. Huzhou has reached the construction conditions of the central city rail transit. According to statistics, in 2017, the number of cars in Huzhou City reached 330,000, with an average annual growth rate of 22% in the past five years, and the peak commuting of cars and electric vehicles accounted for 80%. It is predicted that in 2035, Nanxun-Huzhou-Changxing will have a passenger flow of 350,000 to 450,000 passengers per day. It is impossible to fundamentally reverse the trend of urban traffic congestion through road construction and ground transportation. In order to speed up the integration of regional integration, improve the central city of Huzhou to coordinate the city, lead the urban spatial structure adjustment and the integration of the South Taihu Lake, Huzhou planning and construction of urban rail transit is imperative.
What routes does Huzhou specifically plan? When will it be built? With these questions, the Hangzhou Daily reporter recently received information from the Huzhou Municipal Transportation Bureau. At present, Huzhou urban rail transit has preliminary plans. At the same time, the Huzhou Municipal Transportation Bureau is seeking opinions and suggestions from the general public. According to the population and land area determined by the Huzhou City Master Plan (2017-2035) (in preparation), the preliminary plan of the total scale of the Huzhou rail transit network in 2035 is about 140-170 km, and the per capita orbital mileage is 0.6 km/ About 10,000 people, the per capita track mileage will be at a medium level in the cities of the Yangtze River Delta.
Based on the urban spatial structure and land use layout of Huzhou, the overall layout of the rail transit network plan is initially planned as “cross skeleton, plate linkage”, which consists of 4 lines with a total length of 145 kilometers and 6 urban light rail transfer stations. From 2020 to 2025, Huzhou will build 42.5 kilometers of light rail. The first phase of the line will be about 22.5 kilometers, and it will start construction in 2021.
The Hangzhou Daily reporter noted that the current number of suggestions mentioned above include “connecting three counties and two districts, the main commercial circle and tourist attractions in the city”. The person in charge of the relevant department responsible for the preliminary planning said that some of them have been summarized. However, the cost of rail transit construction is high and sufficient flow of people is needed. Therefore, the opinions of the people with higher voices will be properly considered according to the actual situation. .
Huzhou is a member city of the “Yangtze River Delta City Group”, the core city of the Bay Area of Hangzhou Bay, the central city of the G60 Science and Technology Corridor, the Jiaxing in the east, the Hangzhou in the south, the Taihu Lake in the north, and the Taihu Metropolitan City in Wuxi and Suzhou. Look at each other.
In addition, there are still many people who have proposed that "not only must three counties and two districts be coherent, but also Dongtong Jiaxing will be connected to Shanghai, and the south will be connected to Hangzhou by Deqing." In response to this opinion, the person in charge said that the integration of the Yangtze River Delta and the development of Hangzhou Bay, Huzhou traffic is an indispensable part, so when planning, it will be interconnected with the rail transit of the Yangtze River Delta urban agglomeration and the Taihu Lake area. It will also be taken into account.
At present, the preliminary network planning is basically released, but there are still many uncertainties. After the follow-up to the society and the various departments of the government departments, people's congresses, and CPPCC, the formal network planning is expected to be in December this year. Get approval. At that time, the rail transit planning of Huzhou will be more clear.
