Longquan Mountain Urban Forest Park May Open Small Mountain Trains
Recently, the official website of Sichuan Transportation Investment Group publicized the Sichuan Mountain Railway Planning Environmental Impact Report (Draft), stating that Sichuan is planning to construct 23 mountain railways in two phases. Among them, 32 districts (cities) and counties in the Chengdu Plain, and some sporadic mountainous areas are within the planning scope, including 8 scenic spots: Danjing Moutain, Jiuding Mountain, Longmen Mountain, Xiling Snow Mountain, Tiantai Mountain, Wawu Mountain, Liujiang Ancient Town and Longquan Mountain.11 railways are in the Chengdu Plain Economic Zone, and 5 railways will be implemented in the near future.
According to the proposal, by 2025, Sichuan will build three representative mountain railways. The Pengzhou Danjing Mountain tourist branch line and the Xiling Snow Mountain tourist branch line within the Chengdu area are expected to be launched between 2019 and 2025.The long-term goal is that by 2035, Sichuan will basically form the western Sichuan plateau transportation system with mountain railways as the focus, covering all the county towns and (potentially) world-class tourist attractions.The mountain rail transit industry chain and the tourism industry cluster have entered a mature period and become the leading industry in the western Sichuan plateau economy.There are 4 routes involved in the Chengdu area, in addition to the Pengzhou Danjing Mountain tourist branch line and the Xiling Snow Mountain tourist branch line, there are Dujiangyan-Mount Siguniang-Danba Poverty Alleviation &Tourist Line and Longquan Mountain Urban Forest Park loop line.
