The implementation of the 14th Five-Year Plan for infrastructure construction is accelerating, and investment in transportation infrastructure will play a key role. On July 25, 2022, the Ministry of Transport held a press conference to in-depth interpretation of the "National Highway Network Planning" and to answer media questions. At the meeting, Wang Dongjie, deputy director of the Zhejiang Provincial Department of Transportation, said that this "planning" was officially released, and the number of national expressways in Zhejiang Province increased from 18 to 22, and the number of ordinary national highways increased from 15 to 19, with a total planned mileage of more than 10,000. Kilometers, which has laid a solid foundation for Zhejiang Province to further draw a good "fine strokes" of transportation and serve the construction of a common prosperity demonstration zone.

Mountainous islands and old revolutionary areas in southwestern Zhejiang are the top priorities for Zhejiang Province to speed up transportation development and achieve common prosperity. Through this round of "Planning", all mountainous islands and counties in Zhejiang Province have achieved full coverage of both national highways and national highways. In particular, the Shanghai-Ningbo and Huzhou-Ningbo cross-sea passages that the people of Zhejiang have been looking forward to for many years, as well as the Qingtian-Xiamen highways, are included in the national plan to comprehensively improve the location conditions of mountains and islands and enhance the impetus for endogenous development.

In 2022, Zhejiang will hold a mobilization conference to comprehensively promote the construction of a high-level transportation province. Ten billion" and other major projects. The ten billion-dollar projects are all "super transportation projects", with a total investment of over 1.2 trillion yuan, including the Shanghai-Ningbo Cross-sea Corridor and the Shanghai-Zhouyong Cross-sea Corridor.

The Shanghai-Ningbo Cross-sea Channel is a direct and direct cross-sea channel between Shanghai and Ningbo City, Zhejiang Province. Model, with a total mileage of 70 kilometers (the entire bridge across the sea is 48 kilometers long), with a total investment of 100 billion yuan; this channel is an important part of the national coastal channel, a century-old and iconic project for the integration of the Yangtze River Delta region, and is committed to building a long-term Triangular high-quality integrated development traffic model.

The Huzhou-Ningbo Cross-sea Corridor is a comprehensive transportation channel, and the road and rail are used for overall research. Among them, the highway passage starts from Daishan Shuanghe, connects with the main passage of Ningbo Zhoushan Port under construction, and crosses the north channel of Daishan, the customary route of the west route, the Jinshan channel, and the east channel of Caojing successively to the north, and ends at the west side of Dayangshan Island. The East China Sea Second Bridge planned by Shanghai will be connected to the East China Sea Bridge with a connecting line between the big and small Yangshan Mountains. The main line is about 35 kilometers long and the connecting line is about 11 kilometers long.

Recently, the bidding announcement issued on the official website of the Zhoushan Municipal Transportation Bureau of Zhejiang Province shows that relevant units will be organized to carry out special researches such as feasibility studies, sea-related engineering surveys, and evaluation of the impact of navigation conditions on the Shanghai-Zhouyong Sea-Crossing Channel.

Zhou Jianjun, chief planner of Zhoushan Archipelago New Area, said, "Whether it is the integration of Ningbo and the Yangtze River Delta, the first thing is the "integration of transportation support". With transportation, people, things and information will flow, and regional economies will be coordinated. develop." 

From the perspective of logistics, the Shanghai-Zhouyong cross-sea channel has been built, which has opened up the freight channel of Nantong in Jiangsu - Pudong in Shanghai - Zhoushan Islands - Ningbo. The logistics integration channel was further activated.

From the perspective of the regional economic structure, the sea channel will realize the traffic on both sides of the Hangzhou Bay from "C-type" traffic to "O-type". The comprehensive circular traffic network around Hangzhou Bay will be opened, and Ningbo and Zhoushan can directly connect to Shanghai without detouring to Hangzhou, and the travel time will be reduced by half.

From the perspective of the port group and the construction of the free trade zone, the Shanghai-Zhouyong sea-crossing channel connects the world's largest container port-Shanghai Port and the world's largest freight port-Ningbo Zhoushan Port, and also connects Shanghai and Zhejiang Free Trade Zone. Area. This is of great significance for building a bridgehead for opening up and building a higher-level "Yangtze River Delta Free Trade Port". Editor / Xu Shengpeng
