A group of journalists witnessed the great development Gaochun has achieved in recent years, on the morning of Dec. 5.

Eyeing on the good ecological resources and modern development of the district, Gaochun Urban Planning Bureau aims to build Gaochun into an oriental model for international slow cities, and also a culture and leisure demonstration zone for cities along southern Yangtze River.

Transportation hub of great importance

The 35-minute ride on the Light Rail Transport (LRT) S9 is totally worthwhile, since lots of beautiful villages line on both sides of the 53-kilometer journey. The Line S9 is currently on trial run, and it is scheduled to officially run by the end of this year. “When S7 is completed in the near future, Gaochun will link most of the suburban areas in southern Nanjing,” said Xiong Weiguo, Director of the Gaochun Urban Planning Bureau. Along with several railways and freeways under construction, Gaochun will serve as a transportation hub in neighboring cities of the Yangtze River Delta region. Author:Zhu Na Editor:Amanda
