(Mianyang News) On October 2015, Mianyang municipal party committee and government has made the decision on the transportation construction assembly battle. On October 18, 2017, news came from relevant departments that Mianyang transportation construction assembly battle has accumulatively completed the investment worth of 21.7 billion yuan within two years ever since its launch. Of those, the investment of highway and waterway has reached 9.408 billion yuan in the first nine months, which is 3.6 times of the total investment of first year of assembly battle in 2014. The passenger throughput of Mianyang airport has topped 2.78 million in the first nine months, which is 2.76 times of the total passenger throughput in 2014.

It is learned that Mianyang is intended to invest more than 80 billion yuan within five years ever since the launch of transportation construction assembly battle in order to realize the goal that the expressways can extend to the county, the asphalt roads extend to every town, the cement roads extend to every village and the hard surface extend to every household. In the meanwhile, the construction of comprehensive highway-railway-aviation transportation system shall be continuously strengthened to establish the west regional comprehensive transportation junction. To achieve this goal, Mianyang has organized and held six headquarters special meetings and concentrated on solving the existing problems in promoting the transportation construction assembly battle. The government of all counties and urban districts and the traffic and transportation department of Mianyang have played an active role in and focused on the goal by firmly grasping the golden opportunity of transportation development, overcoming the difficulties and moving forward concertedly. With the active participation of all relevant municipal departments, the whole city has formed the strong joint force of transportation construction assemble battle.  

The two-year transportation construction assembly battle has achieved amazing results. Up to now, the traffic mileage of highway in Mianyang has reached up to 19,900 kilometers and the highway density reaches 98.37 kilometers per 100 square kilometers, which is higher than the average level of Sichuan province and the whole nation. It has established the highway transportation network featured by the national or provincial highway as the framework, connecting the counties and towns and influencing the surrounding areas. The operating kilometrage of railway reaches 201 kilometers and the railway under construction reaches 101 kilometers.  

"In those two years, the continuous efforts have been made to the highway and waterway construction and the investment has also been increased in terms of the construction of expressway. Mian Xi expressway and Jiuzhaigou-Miayang expressway has been constructed successively and the expressway under construction in Mianyang reaches 281 kilometers, which is comparable to the total currently-operating expressway traffic mileageˇ±, as is put Kou ZIsheng who is director of Mianyang municipal transportation department. At present, the construction of Baima tunnel in Jiuzhaigou-Mianyang expressway is speeded up and bids for civil construction project supervision of the whole expressway has been completed and thus it will be under construction very soon. 96% of the subgrade earthwork of the whole Mian Xi expressway has been completed. In the meanwhile, it will also attract investments by combining with the G5 Chengdu-Mianyang expressway expansion. It shall also speed up the preliminary work of Mianyang-Cangxi expressway in order to achieve the final coverage of expressway to the county. In terms of the national or provincial highways, it has witnessed a rapid speed: the newly-rebuilt such 7 provincial trunk highways as 413 Yanpeng road extends 120 kilometers; speeding up the construction of such 10 provincial ring highways as provincial 205 highway extends 138 kilometers; completing the overhaul or moderate repair of 179-kilometers national or province trunk highways in such eight highways as provincial 101 highway from Yongxin to Sanyuan town. The investment of national or provincial highways in the first nine months reaches 1.39 billion yuan. As for the construction of rural road construction, Mianyang has made efforts to closely wove the rural road network: the newly-constructed county-town rural road extends 1320 kilometers; the newly-constructed rural road extends 1958 kilometers, six highway bridges remolded by ferries has been completed; 12 bridges remolded by ziptrecks has been constructed. All those efforts have further improved the road conditions of rural area and completed the annual poverty alleviation task ahead of time.  

"In past two years, Mianyang airport has continuously refined and strengthened its construction of airlines. For the moment, the operating airlines is up to 47 and the airline mileage extends as far as 82,779 kilometers. The flights become even denser and the ticket become even cheaperˇ±, as is put by Feng Jianhua who is director of municipal civil aviation administration. In the first nine months, the daily passenger throughput of Mianyang airport has reached 10,000, growing by 3.8% compared with the year earlier. On October 22, the passenger throughput of Mianyang airport has topped 3 million. In order to satisfy the ever-increasing demands for air passengers flow, the construction of T2 terminal in Mianyang airport is on the agenda.
