Construction of Jinji Lake Tunnel to start in 2018
SIP Planning and Construction Committee announced on July 3 that the construction of Jinji Lake Tunnel will start in 2018 and complete in 2023. Planning, design, environment impact assessment and surveys are currently in process. The construction plan will be made public soon.
As announced, the tunnel and the Rail Transit Line 6 Jinji Lake Section projects will be launched concurrently. The tunnel will connect the east and west banks of Jinji Lake, playing an important role in decongesting traffic and boosting the development on both banks.
The tunnel will be about 5.4km long, including about 3km in the lake. It will be a two-way six-lane tunnel.
