Xinhua News Agency, Shijiazhuang, March 8 (Reporter Gong Zhihong) The Xianghe section of the North Canal connects Beijing Tongzhou on the upper side and Tianjin Wuqing on the lower side. It is an important node that runs through the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei Grand Canal and is also the first stop for tourism on the North Canal.

Langfang City, Hebei Province is speeding up the construction of tourism navigation on the Xianghe section of the North Canal, ensuring that tourism and navigation will be synchronized with Beijing in June this year.

  At the construction site of the Wangjiabai Bridge of the North Canal Tourism Navigation Project, large machinery such as drilling rigs, excavators, and pile drivers are busy working. Workers are working overtime to grab the progress of the project.

According to the planning and design, the Wangjia Pendulum Bridge has a "ruyi" shape, with a length of more than 1,000 meters, two-way six-lane, novel shape and beautiful meaning.

The rubber dam and ship lock project not far from the south side of Wangjiabai Bridge are also under intense construction simultaneously. After the completion of the project, it will ensure that the water level of the Xianghe section of the North Canal fully meets the navigation requirements.

  In order to speed up the implementation of various tasks such as formalities, fund raising, and engineering construction, Langfang City focused on key projects such as two bridges, one dam and one gate on the Xianghe section of the North Canal, and landscape greening construction.

At present, all projects have entered the construction site, and nearly 1 million cubic meters of earth have been excavated.

  In order to dig deeper and protect the cultural heritage of the Grand Canal, Langfang City has successively launched a series of projects in recent years, such as the comprehensive ecological improvement of the North Canal, the improvement of water quality, and the greening of the river along the river.
