Urban transportation experts and managers from 16 cities in the Yangtze River Delta region attended a traffic forum in Shanghai yesterday on the comprehensive development of traffic in the area.
More than 400 of the top 500 global enterprises have launched operations in the 16 cities, and nearly 100 industrial parks, each with an annual industrial output of more than 10 billion yuan (US$1.3 billion), have gathered in the region.
According to the plan, which was jointly made by Shanghai and the nearby Zhejiang and Jiangsu provinces, a comprehensive transportation framework for the Yangtze River Delta region has been formed. By 2010, it should only take three hours to drive between Shanghai and the other parts of the area.
At the forum, nearly 100 famous experts, scholars and representatives from home and abroad discussed issues like road planning and construction, transportation information services and intelligent traffic systems.
