Wuhan builds “green barrier” for Yangtze River Protection

1624 square kilometers of wetlands are rich with vegetation, 165 rivers run day and night, 166 lakes shine like pearls, 10 wetland parks and 5 wetland nature reserves are just like a paradise in the city…This is wuhan, a big river, where natural ecology and urban development complement each other.The Yangtze River stretches 6,300 kilometers from west to east and nourishes the people of Wuhan and Jiangcheng.As the only national central city in the middle reaches of the Yangtze River and the core city of the Yangtze River Economic Belt, Wuhan has the mission and responsibility to promote the ecological development and continuity of the middle reaches of the Yangtze River urban agglomeration and strive to be a leader in the protection of the Yangtze River.Huacheng three-ring add green lake surrounded by four create “wetland” construction of ecological wuhan midwinter, like walking park feel warm warm Yang jiang once again the people get the good news: Wu Hansan ecological belt loop around 12 new all kinds of new park, at this point, the 91 – km – long three loop around the park group from planning of the 33 to 45.The park group consists of 45 parks. Relying on the winding three-ring line, it forms a “concentric green circle”, forming an ecological landscape of “one ring string many beads”.Rudluokou Park integrates flood prevention and scenery observation. In summer, you can see the sea and in winter, you can see the beach.Come to Zhangbi Lake Park, camp in the green heart of the lake, blowing lake wind to listen to the insects;To castle Peak Park, see the cherry blossom mountains fall colorful, enjoy the azalea garden flowers together……From the edge of the city with garbage dumps, dust fields, houses and sheds, it has gradually grown into wuhan ecological green screen, park belt and better life belt. The renewal and transformation of wuhan Three Ring Road from traffic main road to landscape green belt is also a history of clear water and green mountains, but also a miniature of ecological Wuhan construction.Looking down on the river city of Wuhan from a high altitude, there is a larger concentric circle outside the third ring Road — the city’s fourth ring Road, which is symbiosis with rivers and lakes.This is the main road that crosses the Yangtze River and han River, passes through more than 20 lakes, passes through many parks and wetlands, and connects the main urban area and the new urban area. It is also a green road that Wuhan has been planning for more than 6 years.On April 30, 2021, the northeast section of wuhan’s Four-Ring Road was officially put into operation, marking the opening of the 148-km four-ring Road.The green loop also opens up a new way for the public to bypass the lake.The picture is taken by Meng Xiaodong, correspondent of CENTRAL radio network in Daijiahu Park, Qingshan District. The northern section of the Fourth Ring Road bypassed the Back Lake and only crossed some of the lake branches with the viaduct, avoiding the Site of Panlong City.In the eastern section, it bypasses Yanxihu lake and Beihu Lake to maintain the integrity of the ecological water network of Donghu Lake as much as possible.In the southern section, in order to minimize the impact on Tangxun Lake, the route is detoured 2 kilometers to the south.In the western section, in order to avoid directly crossing the central houguan Lake, Bridges are laid along the shorelines of large and small peninsulas on the east side of Houguan Lake to occupy less water and avoid the influence on Zhiyin Lake…It is understood that in order to give way to the lake, to avoid the core protection area, water source protection area, the comprehensive mileage of the four-ring road around more than 6 kilometers.The graph is:In September 2021, Wuhan officially announced the new goal of building “Wetland Capital and Flower River City”. By 2025,Wuhan plans to build 80 wetland parks, 50 small and micro wetlands, 9 flower areas, 300 street gardens, 300 hectares of flower fields and 500 kilometers of green way to appreciate flowers. By then, Wuhan will become a true “wetland flower city”.Afforestation along the Yangtze River aims to strengthen ecological barriersIn addition to the city center “in seam green”, wuhan botanical garden and the forestry sector also faubourgs (, and far city development zone in wuhan “pour green” picking up in a big way, the two rivers and coastline, barren hills, slopes, loop surrounding, bad mountain national forest farm, rural locations, such as space as a large-scale afforestation, add green “main battlefield”, to build ecological base, wuhanBuild up “green momentum” for the city’s future development.In 2018, Hubei province launched the afforestation project along the Yangtze River, one of the ten landmark campaigns to protect the Yangtze River.On the basis of completing 15,200 mu of afforestation on both sides of the Main dyke of the Yangtze River and the tidal flats facing the water surface and the embankments made by people’s dikes, Wuhan has increased the pressure to include the two sides of the Han River in the construction scope at the same time, and afforested the forestland within 200 meters behind the water surface of the main dyke of the two Rivers.In the same year, Wuhan introduced the measures for assessing and punishing water quality of cross-sectional sections of the Yangtze River and ecological compensation, which was the first such mechanism within the city.As of July this year, wuhan has imposed fines of 23.5 million yuan and awarded 25.5 million yuan to districts along the Yangtze river and Han River.Since 2019, Wuhan has launched the investigation and rectification of sewage outlets into the Yangtze River.In addition, the use of “river eye” heavy fist to crack down on illegal river sand mining.In the past three years, wuhan river added more than 30 video monitoring points.In December 2020, wuhan hundred-mile Yangtze River Ecological Corridor project was also launched. The 170-kilometer Yangtze River ecological Corridor will form a spatial structure with two rivers, hundred-mile corridor, 20 views and multiple nodes.Now, the ecological landscape corridors along the two rivers have taken on a pretty look. From a distance, they look like “green barriers”, becoming a beautiful riverside scenery in the eyes of the residents.The environment has improved and the water quality has become clear.Ecological environment monitoring data show that the water quality of two national examination sections of the Wuhan section of the Yangtze River has been continuously improved in the past three years, and is currently stable at Class II, which is also the best water quality in the Wuhan section of the Yangtze River in the past 20 years.Black winged long-legged sandpikes forage in Yezhi Lake Park, Hongshan District.

They take Wuhan as their southernmost habitat, breeding and wintering ground…(Source: Zhu Na, reporter of CNR.cn)
