5 public parking lots in Sanya to be reconstructed for green use
According to the Sanya Department of Housing and Urban Development, the government is planning to invest and rebuild the 5 traditional outdoor public parking lots in Sanya into outdoor green ecological parking lots.
The locations of the 5 outdoor parking lots are: around the Children’s Park in Chunyuan Road, Railway Station at Yalong Bay, Pearl River Garden Hotel, Donghai Longgong Restaurant at the Dadonghai scenic spot, and the Dadonghai diving base. They cover a total land area of 18,000 square meters, which includes 365 small parking spaces and 66 large spaces.
At present, the 5 outdoor parking lots are made of concrete poured directly without any leafy plants and trees. This leads to a very high summer ground temperature, accompanied by the quite serious dust pollution caused by the parking of vehicles, which all greatly aggravates the effect of heat of the island for the city.
After they are reconstructed into ecological parking lots which are mainly made of a kind of environmentally-friendly material called porous pavement, and then covered by large numbers of plants and trees, the 5 free public parking lots will have lower ambient air temperatures and the dust pollution will also be reduced.
