Western Xiangzhou new roads to ease traffic on G105
Santaishi Road, which runs between Gangchang and West Renmin roads and into Jianmin Road in Qianshan, will be extended to Dexi Road in Zhongshan City as four new roads are built in west central Xiangzhou District.
An additional road in Shangchong Village will also be upgraded as the entire project lessens rush-hour traffic on National Highway G105 (Gudu Avenue).
The 627-m (686-yd) Santaishi Road extension line is to be an urban arterial road with a designed speed of 60 kmph (37 mph). It will start at the Central Meijie Road intersection and cross G105 in the west into Zhongshan.
The Zhuhai Highway Bureau issued a public notice on its official website Aug 27 to solicit public opinions on the project.
The 671-m (734-yd) Central Meijie Road section will start from Qingsong Road in the south and extend to the Santaishi Road extension line intersection in the north. West Meijie Road will follow that route but span a farther 1,037 m (1,134 yd) to First Proposed Road. Both sub-arterial roads parallel G105 and will allow a maximum speed of 40 kmph (25 mph).
The 257-m (281-yd) First Proposed Road will be a feeder designed with a speed of 30 kmph (19 mph), and will connect West Meijie Road to G105.
Meanwhile, 853 m (933 yd) of Qingsong Road from East Binshan Road to G105 will be renovated. The sub-arterial road will accommodate a maximum speed of 40 kmph and connect Central Meijie Road to G105.
