[ 2006-11-21 18:45 ]

“西单北大街主路两侧禁止停车,新建4座步行天桥,二环至五环概念性规划……”上周五,“第十三届首都城市规划建筑设计方案汇报展”在北京规划展览馆举行,2008年的北京到底是什么样子?市民通过展览找到了答案。据悉,本次展览将免费向市民开放,展览闭幕日期为12月14日。

In a move to improve city functions, Beijing plans to increase transport facilities and rationalize construction designs.

According to an exhibition opened on last Friday at the Beijing Urban Planning Exhibition Hall, major shopping areas such as Xidan Street and transport hubs like the Beijing Railway Station will rearrange bus lines and have new subway entrances respectively.

The second ring road, adjacent to old city's walls, is just a few kilometer away from city center. The eastern part of the area within the ring road will be dominated by business offices while its western side will see more financial complexes. The southern area will be residential and the northern one will be characterized by cultural facilities, plus grassland 2.4 kilometers long and 15-28 meters wide at Desheng Park.

The bicycle line is expected to be added to more roads and thoroughfares in the residential areas within the third ring road.

The fourth ring road will be Olympic-themed as many Olympic projects are located nearby. More attention will be given to the construction of transport facilities including parking lots and bus stations.

The fifth ring road links a lot of tourist spots such as the Fragrant Hills, the Botanic Garden and the Yuan Ming Yuan Imperial Garden. The planning authorities intend to give prominence to the Olympic atmosphere in the area, and will set up more traffic signs and lights.

The exhibition, to run till mid-December, will take in the opinion of the public.
