It is important to know that China is building a car-free city, suitable for walking and full of green space, with a capacity of 80,000 people. It is intended to minimize much lower water use, waste generation, and air pollution.
Create a city free of cars in China
Pollution and greenhouse gases are a major problem for today and the future and China, the world’s largest polluter, is willing to fight them for the first time in human history.
Policies against carbon dioxide emissions have recently been implemented by Beijing authorities, leaving private companies free to do so.
Officials in the Chinese city of Shenzhen have planned to create a car-free town on the Pearl Beach of the city that can accommodate 80,000 people and has been built with a lot of green space in it for residents’ health and increased walking.
The town is planned to significantly reduce the use of water, the production of waste and air pollution. In China, technology giant Tencent has announced plans to develop a “smart city” that prioritises people and the environment by using technology. This model is particularly suitable for the post-Corona period, according to Tencent.
plans for the town
In 2017, President Xi announced the country’s plans to develop the new Xi’an District, 130 km southwest of Beijing, as an Urban Innovation Zone.
The city is 2,000 square kilometers, which is roughly the size of Greater London and New York’s combined territory.
The advanced facilities of the city, such as larger terraces, 3D printers, and shared greenhouses, make it possible for residents to live more easily in future quarantines.
The complex will feature wooden horses, rooftop farms, and renewable energy, according to the project’s chief architect.
The ‘big city’ is a blueprint for an innovative urban area designed to reduce the effect of its inhabitants on the environment by creating renewable energy, eliminating pollution, and encouraging public transport rather than the personal use of vehicles.
