District key to promote regional integration
Jiading is continuing to promote the integration of Yangtze River Delta region.
Chengbei Road in Jiading and Yuelu Road in Taicang in Jiangsu Province has joined up. Originally the two roads ended on either side of a river.
In the process of regional integration, traffic integration is undoubtedly in a leading position.
As the “bridgehead” between Shanghai and the other cities in the delta region, Jiading and most cities in the region are within a two-hour economic circle. Jinghu Expressway, Shenhai Expressway, Yanjiang Expressway, Jiamin Elevated Road, Hujia Expressway and other important channels pass through the area.
Railway stations including Anting North Station, Anting West Station and Nanxiang North Station are close to the Hongqiao transport hub. Hence, Jiading can reach cities in the delta region and other major cities at home and abroad through flights or high-speed rail.
As the first trans-provincial rail transit in China, Shanghai Metro Line 11 connects Anting Town in Jiading and Huaqiao Town in Jiangsu, making the people of two towns “live like in the same city.”
In addition, the construction of the Jiamin Metro Line will start in the first quarter of next year, linking with Taicang, and become another major public transport channel connecting Shanghai and Jiangsu.
Jiading-based Scientific Technology Fair for Yangtze River Delta Region attracted enterprises, universities, scientific research institutes and R&D institutions from 13 cities in the region for the past two times and reported a total transaction amount of more than 37 million yuan (US$5.5 million).
The third fair will be held between November 18 and 20 and bigger than before.
It provides a platform for matching technology, talent, information, capital and other scientific and technological innovation elements and promotes the development of regional scientific innovation and industry.
