Guiyang city, capital of Southwest China's Guizhou province, has been streamlining its transportation planning, connecting cut-off or impassable roads and improving management in recent years, to solve urban traffic congestion and offer more high-quality transportation services.
The Guiyang Transportation Committee has been sorting out cut-off and impassable roads in the city since 2018 and made big progress with projects connecting the sections of broken roads.
According to Zhong Yu, director of Guiyang Transportation Development Research Center, information about 145 cut-off and impassable urban roads have now been sorted out. Up to now, 35 urban cut-off impassable road sections totaling 39 kilometers have been connected.

This year, Guiyang will connect six cut-off impassable roads extending 7 km in total in the districts of Guanshanhu, Baiyun, Yunyan, Nanming and Wudang and in the Guiyang Economic & Technological Development Zone.
Plans are for the Guiyang Transportation Committee to accelerate the overall process and refine the construction tasks and the schedule, to reduce traffic jams and increase traffic efficiency.
In addition, the committee will boost the construction of public transport infrastructure, enhance the quality of public transportation services and continue with its development as a national demonstration city for public transportation.
