Take advantage of the setting up of this exclusive public transport lane to recompose areas along its layout by burying overhead networks, planting of dense and adapted vegetation and improving the connections between roads, cycle lanes and pavements. 50% additional tree plantations have completed the former tree cover.
Planning of a 2,4 km thoroughfare in Nanjing, South China. Planting more than 10 000 trees, 20 000 shrubs, four gardens and three public squares. The operation was based on three different components. The first one was ecological, with the planting of a 25 Ha urban forest in the city centre. It has a large impact on the neighbourhood’s atmosphere. The second component is cultural: this unique space offers motorists an insight into a new kind of landscape to live and to enjoy. Finally, the third component is technological:energy for public lighting is provided by wind and sun.
