The photo taken on October 10 shows vehicles run through the newly built Wanfu Road in Changsha. Completed in early October, the road (between Xianfeng Road and Jinhai Road) is a main trunk linking Yuhua and Tianxin districts. It is Yuehua District’s first urban road designed and built according to the sponge city concept. The pedestrians and median along the 1,940-m road is surfaced with permeable concrete. Underground culverts are installed to keep and divert water. All these help maximize the reuse of rainwater. (Photo/Tian Chao)
