Chongqing is to invest 82 billion yuan ($11.9 billion) into its transport system this year, spending 28.5 billion yuan on railways, and 47 billion yuan on highways, according to a traffic plan released on Feb 15.

A total of six new rail lines will open, covering 886 kilometers, including a 118-km high-speed line between Chongqing and Yunnan capital Kunming.

Through nine construction projects, an extra 661 km will be added to Chongqing’s highway network, resulting in 3,000 km of road coverage.

Jiangbei international airport will add and extra 10 international air routes, and open its T3 terminal this year. A heliport is also under construction near Black Valley, one of Chongqing’s most renowned scenic spots.

To further increase transport security across a wide area, real-name ticketing will come into effect on water transport in 2017.

The plan also states that an extra 250 villages will gain access to bus services, resulting in a public transport coverage rate of 97.5 percent in Chongqing.
