China, People's Republic of: Jiangxi-Fuzhou Urban Integrated Infrastructure Improvement

Sovereign Project | 44007-012

Summary

The expected outcome of the project is efficient multimodal accessibility to the new main railway station. The proposed project will have five main outputs intended to develop the new railway station into a major urban passenger transport hub, link the station to the existing city, and promote multimodal integration. The proposed project outputs are:

i) Urban transport hub including new bus terminal;

ii) Upgraded public transport system which may include additional vehicles, station upgrades, real time arrival information systems, dedicated bus lanes, better pedestrian crossings, and a model bus corridor linking the new station to the old city area;

iii) Fenggang river improvement and park development to extend an existing park corridor along the river providing an urban "greenway" for non-motorized transport that will link the old city to the new station development area;

iii) Fenggang river improvement and park development to extend an existing park corridor along the river providing an urban "greenway" for non-motorized transport that will link the old city to the new station development area;

iv) About 9 km of new class II urban roads to provide access to the new railway station including utilities, streetscape improvements and improve traffic management; and

v) Replacement housing and public services such as schools and a community center for displaced residents.
