Guangdong workers, who st-arted the Pearl River Delta Green Lanes construction in March 2010, have completed over 1,000 km of provincial level green lanes in the sub tropical forest, along the Pearl River banks and between several cities.

The six picturesque lanes in plan, with greens, water, walkways, bicycle ways and service stations, will be an example of Guangdong's new tourism highlights and green and low carbon economy. This November Premier Wen Jiabao praised the project after a bicycle ride along green lanes near Zhuhai's coast.

According to the project outline issued by the Housing and Urban-Rural Cons-truction Department, Guangdong gov-ernment will build six green lanes, with a total length of 1,678 km, from 2010 to 2012. These roadways will connect the cities and countryside within the Delta area.

From 2012, Guangdong will extend the lane network to the eastern, western and northern areas of the province, which will then connect a population of 25.6 million people and over 200 forest parks, natural preserve areas, rural parks, lakes, and cultural heritage destinations within the three city rings of Guangzhou-Fo-shan-Zhaoqing, Shenzhen-Dongguan-Huizhou and Zhuhai-Zhongshan-Jiangmen.

The lanes will make full use of Guang-dong's natural scenery and countryside and avoid the deterioration of existing buildings and infrastructures. The green lane construction project is being ca-rried out by Pearl River Delta cities with unified standards, including a road sign system, first aid and emergency systems and bus and transfer stations. Shops and other services are also included in the project. (by Zhang Ying)
