Shanxi: The 13th Five-Year Plan to build 4,120 kilometers of rural tourist roads



Shanxi Province has issued plans to build and improve a number of tourist roads during the 13th Five-Year Plan period. The reason is that in recent years, the rapid development of rural characteristic tourism has made the problem of low level of rural tourism road service prominent and needs to be improved.

The current level of technology is low, and the quality of travel services needs to be improved. At present, the province's fourth-class and other foreign roads reach 99,000 kilometers, accounting for 80.3% of the total mileage of rural roads. Many roads with characteristic rural tourism, forest tourism, eco-tourism and poverty alleviation tourist attractions have low technical grades and poor road quality. The overall level of rural tourist road service is low, and it is not convenient and comfortable.

Insufficient supporting facilities and inadequate transportation service functions. The existing tourist highways are incomplete in the signage and guidance system of the scenic spots, and lack of corresponding consultation and guiding signs for some self-driving travels, such as personalized travel, which cannot meet the individualized and diversified needs of the people.

The design development concept needs further innovation. At present, the environmental protection design concept of the highway has been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, but it is still insufficiently considered in the design of low-grade highways. Tourism roads have dual functions. In addition to the design standards and traffic requirements of general roads, it is necessary to pay attention to coordination with the scenic environment, safety, environmental protection and comfort, and to create a landscape to maximize the protection of the natural environment.

Rich tourism resources are in urgent need of further development. Shanxi Province is rich in tourism resources, with a total of 543 scenic spots, including 143 A-level scenic spots. There are 23 national and provincial forest parks in the province, more than 2,000 cultural relics protection units, 129 traditional Chinese villages, 139 national and provincial industrial and agricultural tourism demonstration sites, and countless farmhouses with tourism nature. Recreational places such as resorts. Although there are many scenic spots in Shanxi Province, they are scattered. From Datong in the north to Yuncheng in the south, each county (district) has attractions. To this end, it is urgent to further develop rural tourism, poverty alleviation tourism and other attractions to meet the different levels of tourism consumption needs of the broad masses of the people.

Therefore, during the “Thirteenth Five-Year Plan” period, Shanxi will newly renovate a number of rural tourist highways leading to various scenic spots in various cities, counties (districts), with a total length of 4,120 km, a total of 266 projects involving 11 cities, covering 10 Districts, 10 cities and 74 counties, basically achieve four-level and above tourist road connectivity.

The rural tourism road covers rural tourism roads in the “National Tourism” category attractions such as A-level scenic spots, national forest parks, scenic spots, cultural relics protection units, nature reserves, traditional villages, industrial and agricultural tourism demonstration sites in Shanxi. Rural tourism highway refers to the rural road connecting the trunk line to the scenic spot, scenic spot and scenic spot, excluding the scenic road and the inner road of the scenic spot.

According to the relevant person in charge of the Shanxi Road and Bridge Group Rural Tourism Highway Construction Headquarters, in 2017, Shanxi Rural Tourism Highway plans to complete an investment of 3 billion yuan to complete the construction task of about 700 kilometers.
