Hongsha Tunnel in Sanya expected to open to traffic in mid-August
The Hongshan Tunnel in Sanya is expected to open to traffic in mid-August this year, according to the reports.
The Hongsha Tunnel project, which will connect Hongsha and downtown Sanya, covers a length of around 1.8 km and is set to be completed in 2015.
The project is a major urban infrastructural project in Sanya with a total investment of 470 million yuan. Located in the Linchun and Hongsha communities, the project involves a tunnel, approaches, a water supply, drainage and greening works. The road, tunnel and approach have a total length of 2,438 meters, 1,800 meters and 638 meters, respectively.
After its completion, the project will effectively ease the traffic pressure of the existing roads of Dadonghai linking Hongsha to the main urban area and perfecting the regional road network.
