The arterial road of Jieshuiling-Shankou section on Xianning-Tongshan line of the 209 provincial highway has been completed and opened to traffic ahead of schedule, according to Tongshan County Transportation Bureau on July 8.
Xianning-Tongshan line of 209 provincial highway is one of the main trunk lines in Tongshan, with a total length of 5.1 kilometers. It is the first-selected road to get in and out of Tongshan. In recent years, with the rapid development of economy and society, and rapidly increased traffic, Jieshuiling-Shankou section has been damaged to varying degrees.
Tongshan invested 11 million yuan on May 12 and planned to carry out a comprehensive reconstruction of the road from Jieshuiling to Shankou in two months.
"I am really grateful to the government for doing a great good for the villagers." surnamed Song, a villager of Bankengwan, Jieshuiling Village, said that the roads were deeply rutted, inconvenient and unsafe in the past, but now they are smooth and everyone is particularly satisfied.
In order to complete the project as soon as possible, Tongshan County Transportation Bureau reasonably organized the construction, adjusted schedule, carried out construction in multiple places simultaneously regardless of sunny and rainy days, so that the project was completed and opened to traffic ahead of schedule after more than 50 days of hard work.
"Before, the road was not so wide or so beautiful, and it was more 'troublesome' to drive." The driver surnamed Tan lives in Xian'an, works in Tongshan, and often travels between the two places. He said now the roads are wider and more beautiful, and it is more comfortable and safe to drive.
Zheng Xiaodong, director of Tongshan County Highway Bureau, said that the project not only includes road infrastructure reconstruction such as road blackening and widening, but also involves the supporting projects such as landscape upgrading and building facade renovation, so as to improve the comfort level in traveling for the masses in all directions.
