The 10 most beautiful country roads in Shanghai were revealed on Tuesday at a ceremony held by the city’s agriculture commission, tourism office and transport commission.

The roads were given the title after districts' recommendations, a public vote and peer reviews.

Most of the roads are popular tourist destinations, green ecological paths, or key to industrial development and innovative technology.

Recommended travel routes in the city featuring rural tourism were also announced during the ceremony.

According to the transport commission, Shanghai will continue to push infrastructure upgrading in rural areas so residents can enjoy more recreational facilities and options.

“We intend to improve four aspects of country roads, including the nearby scenery, ecosystems and year-round maintenance, which is important for the integration and development of urban and rural areas,” said Shi Xiaozhong, deputy director of the Shanghai Road Transport Development Center.
