The Changsha Historical Footpath Planning passed the expert view recently.


According to the Planning, Changsha will build China’s first historical footpath network connecting its main historical and cultural areas, sites of historical significance, and historical resources. It is expected to be a new mark of the city.


The footpath network will be a multi-function site for tourism, recreation, physical practice, and pedestrian traffic, consisting of historical and cultural sites, footpaths, and supporting facilities, said the principal of the Changsha Urban and Rural Planning Bureau.


The Planning covers the whole city area in history, stretching from Xiangjiang Road (M) in the west to Furong Road in the east, and Sanyi Avenue in the north to Baisha Road in the south. The planning area totals 8.1 sq. km. The main entrances are 300 meters, or 5-minute walk, away from bus or metro stations.


The Planning will be carried out by stages. A 6.4 km south-north main path will be completed by the end of this year, connecting Hunan First Normal University, West Wenmiaoping area, Taiping Street, Chaozong Street, and Kaifu Temple.
