Jinhua-Shaxi Highway and Hehui River Project, May 2016

Jinhua Shaxi highway 2016


Under the planning and restoration support of LEP, once a quiet and economically lagging village, Sideng is now starting to become one of the famous tourist spot at international level. The pristine Shaxi valley is highly ecologically sensitive and demands a sophisticated and cautious planning of its development in terms of type and scale. One among the large series of projects undertaken by LEP in the region, the project is addressing two separate and crucial subjects; 1) the new planned bypass highway from Jinhua to Shaxi; and 2) the central river Hehui flowing across the valley.
