Haikou to strengthen construction of coastal slow-lane system
As part of its general plan for city development, the Haikou government is planning to strengthen the construction of its coastal slow-lane system as well as its yacht marinas by 2020.
According to the plan, the coastal slow-lane network will be divided into 4 categories, involving 22 areas. Besides, the local government has proposed to open 6 water bus routes and speed up construction of artificial islands on East Coastline, West Coastline and Haikou Bay.
Meanwhile, the new general plan for the Haikou Yacht Marinas (between 2013-2030) also identifies a layout structure for three districts, one key river region and one core area. The three districts are dominated by Changliu District, Haikou Urban District and Jiangdong District, while the one key river region and the one being planned are Nandu River and Xiuying Port in Haikou Bay, respectively.
