In Shenzhen, the fast urban expansion over the last 40 years resulted in river environments like the 11.6 km long Xinqiao River with neglected and channelized river, limited riverfront space and with little value for biodiversity, ecology, or liveability.
The Blueway Policy offers the opportunity to transform 1000 km of existing rivers, riverfronts, and lakes in Shenzhen into multifunctional waterfronts.
The investement of 734 million RMB in Xinqiao Blueway project will transform the river into a green Blueway with a healthy river ecology, green riverfront spaces and natural riverbanks, which integrate climate adaptive measures and enlarge areas for infiltration and water buffering. Furthermore, continuous slow traffic paths are developed to connect the city with the river. Enjoyable public spaces, parks and amenities are added and integrated area developments of four key area were designed.
Our international multidisciplinary team of landscape architects, urban designers, architects, ecologists, and hydrologists have delivered a comprehensive design ensuring high social, economic, cultural and ecological value, with good feasibility.
