中非峰会期间北京大半公车“休息”
[ 2006-10-26 11:41 ]

11月1日至6日,北京的大半公车都要闭门休息。届时,“中非合作论坛北京峰会”将在北京举行,因为非洲国家领导人的驻地分散、涉及面广、行车路线长,为保证会议期间车流畅通无阻,根据有关规定,中央单位公车的50%和北京市属单位、外省市驻京机构公车的80%将暂时封存,不得上路。各在京单位将实施错峰上下班,中小学校还将在部分时间提前放学。北京市政府号召市民顾全大局,峰会期间尽量减少私车出行,提倡乘坐公交车或骑自行车上下班、外出。

More than half the government cars in Beijing will be banned from streets between November 1 and 6 to ensure traffic flows smoothly during the four-day China-Africa Co-operation Forum summit.

Schedules for work units, schools and department stores will also be adjusted to avoid flooding the roads, authorities said Wednesday in a televised conference.

Addressing the importance of road safety during the summit, the traffic watchdog said that African leaders would be staying in several hotels throughout in the city, and may need to travel long distances for some activities.

Specifically, the plan stipulates that half of the vehicles owned by work units of the State and Party institutions, or military forces and their affiliated enterprises, will be banned from the streets during those six days.

Also banned will be 80 per cent of government vehicles from every suburb and county in Beijing Municipality, and from the Beijing offices of every other province and municipality.

For privately-owned and company cars, drivers are recommended to avoid major routes likely to be used by foreign guests during the summit.

Those routes include Chang'an Avenue, the east and west second ring roads, and the airport expressway.

Taxis without passengers are strictly banned from entering Chang'an Avenue, the east and west Second Ring Roads, Sanlihe Street, the roads to the east and west of Tian'anmen Square, and the road to the west of the Great Hall of the People.

All drivers are also encouraged to avoid the main airport expressway, instead using the northern road that also links the airport to the city.
