Random parking of non-motorized vehicles, illegal advertisements and areas around wet markets were of most concern in regard to public sanitation and the environment in the second half of 2017, authorities said yesterday.

In an assessment, the city’s environment scored 79.92 overall, almost near the “good” level, with Xuhui, Changning, Jing’an, Huangpu, Yangpu and Hongkou districts having the highest scores, said the Shanghai Greenery and Public Sanitation Bureau. Its assessment covered 119 subdistricts downtown and 97 in the suburbs covering 13 categories.

The environment near schools, hospitals, traffic hubs, as well as the management of public toilets and green space were the most satisfactory categories, according to the bureau.

The subdistricts of Jing’an Temple, Nanjing Road W., Xinhua Road and Xujiahui were among the best in terms of the environment, while Songnan, Sanlin and Huinan towns had the lowest scores, the bureau said.
