New urban plan launched for greater Xi’an area
A working conference was held in Xi’an, capital of Shaanxi province on March 23, discussing urban planning projects for the greater Xi’an area (Xi’an city, Xianyang city and Xixian New Area).
Lou Qinjian, Party chief of Shaanxi province, conducted the conference and urged Xi’an to make more effort to improve the area’s weaknesses, including the local environment and transportation.
According to the conference, an urban plan needs to be developed and strictly implemented.
Lou suggested improving urban facilities to promote transportation, underground pipelines and the water network.
The urban planning projects aim to make the combined area around Xi’an an international metropolis while maintaining its traditions, claimed Lou.
