ĦĦĦĦThe first phase of Ecological Shelter Forest (Urban Greenway) Project of Airport Area in Tianjin Port Free Trade Zone (hereinafter referred to as Ħ°Airport Urban Greenway ProjectĦħ or Ħ°the ProjectĦħ), with total green area of 2.62 million square meters or so, was commenced. The Project includes urban leisure area, ecological conservation area and ecological exhibition area. After completion the Project will form a landscape and barrier for expressway, improve local green layout, and become another high-quality core landscape area in Tianjin Port Free Trade Zone.

ĦĦĦĦAirport Urban Greenway Project has a total green area of 2.62 million square meters or so, and total investment of RMB 660 billion or so. According to the overall plan, the Project will mainly consist of trunk greenway running through the zone, greenbelt along waters, linking facilities along the greenway, and park nodes. Based on the current development conditions of the airport area of Tianjin Port Free Trade Zone, the Project will be constructed in several phases, and it is currently in the first phase of construction. In this phase, nearly 60,000 trees in about 20 species and about 43,000 shrubs in 23 species will be planted to show seasonal beauty of plants. Appropriate quantity of colored-leaf plants and autumn-leaf plants will be planted on the green base to form beautiful landscape with both green and other colors in all seasons.

ĦĦĦĦIt is learned that the first phase of the Project includes urban leisure area, ecological conservation area and ecological exhibition area. The Project is an important ecological channel in the green space network of the downtown area of Tianjin and Binhai New Area. It will promote construction of ecological corridor, become a model in ecological corridor construction, have radiation effect on the surrounding areas, connect the first phase plot and the second phase plot of the airport area, enhance urban quality and value of surrounding plots, and provide esplanade for local residents. As introduced by an officer of Urban Environment Administration of Tianjin Port Free Trade Zone, the construction range of Airport Urban Greenway Project, according to the overall plan, covers a section (from Tianjin-Hangu Highway to Beijing-Tianjin-Tanggu Expressway) of Ningjing Expressway, and the planned greenbelts along the waters around the second phase plot of the airport area. In terms of construction, the first phase of the Project will include topographical foundation works, mainly focus on plantation, and appropriately enlarge the waters for flood prevention and water conservancy, so that landscape benefits and environmental benefits can be achieved at the same time. The main works will include planting of trees in basic species, earthwork, desalinization works, pipeline works, embankment works, water supply and drainage works, and so on. Construction of the hard landscape and supporting facilities in the overall plan will be commenced timely and completed gradually in future. Characterized by low carbon, environmental protection, and low investment, the Project will, while showing the good image of this zone, achieve sustainable construction and development by means of by-phase construction, earthwork balance, and encouraged participation of enterprises.
