It is learned from the Municipal Transportation Bureau that Ningbo’s "Transportation Action Plan for Common Prosperity Pilot City" was recently released. The plan clarifies that the transportation goal is to basically build a world-class strong port and form a "four ports" linkage development pattern. Three "one-hour traffic circles" of provinces, cities, and urban areas will be built, and more than 85% of towns and villages can get on the highway in 15 minutes. It will create the national demonstration city with "Four Goods Rural Roads", and the integration rate of urban and rural public transport will reach 100%. Traffic congestion in cities and highways will be significantly curbed, and the average speed of buses and trams in urban areas during peak hours will reach 20 km/h.

3 "one-hour traffic circles" will be built in an all-round way

According to reports, the plan has four key tasks and three major reform tasks. Six aspects are mainly involved in facilitating people's convenient travel.

In terms of improving comprehensive transportation channels, we will build three "one-hour traffic circles" in an all-round way. In terms of railways, we will focus on the construction of the Jinhua-Ningbo Railway, start the construction of the Nantong-Suzhou-Jiaxing-Ningbo Railway and the Ningbo-Zhoushan Railway, and plan to promote the Shanghai-Ningbo cross-sea channel, the Ningbo-Taizhou-Wenzhou-Fuzhou high-speed railway, and Hangzhou-Ningbo Intercity railway Project.

Ningbo will improve the "Five Directions and Ten Paths" expressway network, build the first phase and second phase of the Ningbo section of the Hangzhou-Ningbo Expressway double line, the first phase of the Xiangshan Bay port, the Ningbo section of the Liuheng Bridge, and the Shipu connection line, and implement the renovation and expansion of the Ningbo-Taizhou-Wenzhou Expressway.

It is learned that Ningbo has taken the lead in realizing the "1 hour traffic circle" in the city and urban areas, with a population coverage rate of 100%. The next stage will focus on the construction of urban (suburban) railways such as railways from Ningbo to Yuci, Cixi, Xiangshan, and continue to improve travel efficiency.

Ningbo will also intensify the construction of Jinhua-Ningbo Railway, Hangzhou-Ningbo Expressway double line and other projects, speed up the planning of Ningbo-Zhoushan Expressway double line, and strive to achieve the provincial "1-hour traffic circle" population coverage from 82% to 99% by the end of the "14th Five-Year Plan"
