Changsha Mayor Urges Construction of “Bus City" to Ease Traffic Jam 长沙市长:建设“公交都市” 解“堵城”之困

Changsha Mayor Hu Henghua said during the "Two Sessions" (the 12th National People's Congress (NPC) and the 12th Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC)) that Changsha will vigorously promote "Bus City" construction, so as to alleviate the traffic jam.

According to Mayor Hu, Changsha will take such measures as optimizing routes, decreasing bus ticket price, and developing private channels for BRT to propel construction of "Bus City", to provide more convenient and favorable services to citizens. The action aims at attracting citizens to choose the bus for travel, reducing private car utilization, and keep traffic smooth. In addition, Changsha's subway is expected to effectively ease the city's traffic pressure.

"The one thing I most want to accomplish in 2014 is to let Changsha's subway run successfully, satisfying urban residents' wish for the subway transportation." said Hu. In future, Changsha will have a stereoscopic public transportation system with large-capacity rail transportation and rapid buses as backbone, ordinary buses as main body, taxis as supplement, and non-motorized traffic as outspread. This will dramatically change the traffic jam situation in Changsha.

全国人大代表、湖南长沙市长胡衡华参加全国两会期间表示,将大力推进公交都市建设,解决长沙"堵城"之困.

胡衡华介绍,长沙将通过优化线路、降低票价、开辟BRT专用通道等措施,推动"公交都市"建设更加惠民利民,吸引市民更多选择公交出行,减少私家车出行频次,提升道路畅通能力.此外,地铁开通也将有效改善城市交通.

胡衡华说:"我2014年最想干成的一件事,就是让长沙地铁顺利运行,满足城市居民对地铁到来的愿望."在胡衡华看来,未来,长沙将建成以大容量轨道交通和快速公交为骨干、常规公交为主体、出租汽车为补充、慢行交通为延伸的立体公共交通体系,这将极大地改变长沙"堵城"面貌.
