All-around Progress Is Being Made in the Construction of Nibatuo Urban Forest Park
As a major livelihood project in Xindu District, Chengdu, Nibatuo Urban Forest Park has attracted extensive attention from all walks of life since it broke ground this September. Reporters have recently learned that this project is progressing smoothly.
With Pihe River flowing from west to east, Nibatuo Urban Forest Park, in southeastern Xindu District, is located at the west side of Wanhe Village of Xindu Street and Yuying Street of Guilin Village, the north side of Qujing Street and the south side of Gongye Avenue. Divided into the south area and the north area, the construction of the park also includes architectural engineering, road construction, waterway transformation and regulation, sports facility, ground hardening and the construction of square, green landscape, water body, etc. The Phase I of the project is currently under construction, and is estimated to be completed and put into use in October 2019.
According to the head of project site, the Phase I of the project has so far cleared 100,000m2 land, completed 90% slope, constructed 90% roadbed within the park and accomplished the desilting completely.
It’s also known that the sample area of the park is currently being built and planned to be completed soon. In addition, the slope landscape has been shaped, and the sumps for rainwater and sewage have successively been finalized. Next, measures will be taken to improve the landscape bridges and lavatories.
“Nibatuo Urban Forest Park will be built into a green lung for the central areas of Xindu District to decrease the heat island effect by 3 °C effectively. With the park green area reaching nearly 4m2 per capita, the wonderful vision of “living in green forests surrounded city” will be achieved”, said the head of the project.
