As long as he has time, Bat Khan Saidi Khan, a herder from Wulatai Township, Yizhou District, Hami City, Xinjiang, likes to visit the Jingxin Expressway not far from home.
In 2011, the construction of the section from Mingshui (Xinganjie) to Hami in Shuangjingzi Township, Yizhou District, Hami City, Beijing-Xinjiang Expressway had just started, and construction water was urgently needed.
In the vast Gobi, it is not easy to find water. Batkhan, who has been grazing in this area for a long time and is familiar with nearby water sources, took the staff of the project department to find the water source, and since then forged a deep friendship with the builders of the project department.
In 2017, the Gansu and Xinjiang sections of the Jingxin Expressway were completed and opened to traffic.
Within this year, the Beijing-Xinjiang Expressway, which runs through the six provinces of Beijing, Hebei, Shanxi, Inner Mongolia, Gansu, and Xinjiang, will basically be fully connected, becoming the most convenient highway connecting Xinjiang to North China, Northeast China and eastern inland areas.
"Now that the road has been repaired to the doorstep, everyone's life is getting better and better." After the road was passed, the villagers of Wulatai Village, Wulatai Township, where Bat Khan was located, lived in spacious and bright houses for the rich and drank clean tap water. , The home broadband is installed, and the exquisite embroidery products made by Kazakh "embroiders" are sold all over the country.
Promote villagers' income
Starting from Beijing, the grasslands, deserts, Gobi, forests, glaciers and other natural scenery along the Beijing-Xinjiang Expressway make tourists from all over the country linger.
Now in Xinjiang, whether it is the ancient Silk Road tourist loop formed by scenic spots such as Dahaidao Yadan, Kumtag Desert, Tuyugou, Barkun Lake, or Tianshan Tianchi, Beiting Ancient City, Jiangbulak Grassland, The East Tianshan self-driving tour route composed of scenic spots such as East Tianshan and Kumtag Desert Park has become a check-in place for self-driving travel enthusiasts.
Self-driving tours have injected new momentum into the revitalization of Hami's countryside. Through a diversified model, the local area supports various towns and villages to carry out themed festivals, enriches tourists' journeys, and drives villagers to increase their income.
Hami City has 146 star-rated farmhouses, 8 rural tourism demonstration towns (villages), 1 national-level rural tourism key village, and 43 homestays.
Today, the "last kilometer" Wutong Daquan-Mulei section of Beijing-Xinjiang Expressway has entered the asphalt paving stage. Highway builders are working overtime to ensure that the entire line will be opened to traffic on June 30 this year.
At that time, Xinjiang's second major highway through the East Union inland and in and out of Xinjiang will be fully opened to traffic.
"After the Wutong Spring-Mulei section is repaired, it will be more convenient for tourists to drive to the Moon Village in Mulei County to experience the music road." said Zhang Huijun, Party Secretary of the Mulei County Culture, Sports, Radio, Television and Tourism Bureau.
Stimulate new kinetic energy
Hami City, located in the easternmost part of Xinjiang, was once known as the "First City of Yangguan in the West".
Nowadays, the city takes full advantage of Lianhuo Expressway and Jingxin Expressway across the whole territory, based on the establishment of an important growth pole for high-quality development in Xinjiang, and strives to build the "three bases", "three centers" and "three districts", and accelerate the transformation from the "economic Transition from “channel” to “channel economy”.
Leveraging on the construction of Beijing-Xinjiang Expressway, Hami City continues to make efforts in resource development.
As my country’s largest export base for wind, solar, and thermal power, Hami City has vigorously carried out "West-to-East Power Transmission" and actively developed advanced wind power equipment manufacturing. Xinjiang Goldwind Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as "Goldwind Technology") Hami Goldwind Wind Power Equipment Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned subsidiary, is stepping up production of various wind turbine equipment.
The construction of expressways has also accelerated Goldwind's process of accelerating its industrial layout.
The construction of the Dabancheng Wind Power Equipment Industrial Base project of Goldwind Technology started; the intelligent level of wind turbines in the centralized control center of Goldwind Technology Tianrun Northwest Branch Company has been improved. More than 100 sensors are installed on each wind turbine to monitor wind conditions, altitudes, and altitudes. Real-time sensing of temperature and its own noise, vibration and other conditions.
The Gobi has changed its route. Changji City, which is close to Urumqi City, relies on land and railway location and resource advantages to establish Xinjiang (Changji) Asia-Europe International Logistics Park to boost local economic development.
In the past, the logistics and warehousing enterprises that attracted a single function were transformed into key logistics enterprises that can provide comprehensive solutions such as logistics financial services and fourth-party logistics, and then developed into an important logistics hub in Xinjiang and an important logistics distribution base for Central Asia.
The urban agglomerations of Urumqi, Changji, and Shihezi in the economic belt on the northern slope of the Tianshan Mountains surrounded by expressways have become hot spots for industries.
Outline the development map
"The grapes and melons of Turpan, the fragrant pears of Korla, and the pomegranates of Yecheng are all praised." With the help of the highway network, Xinjiang's specialty agricultural products are closer to the market. People everywhere have tasted the sweetness of Xinjiang fruits.
With Xinjiang Fruit Industry Group as the leader, Xinjiang focuses on raisins, walnuts, red dates and other characteristic forest and fruit products. In the main forest and fruit production areas such as Hotan, Aksu, Turpan, etc., according to the "online spot electronic trading platform + offline origin trading" With the "distribution center" operation model, 9 projects have been built for the distribution center for warehousing, acquisition, and processing transactions in Xinjiang.
Every time the fruit is on the market, Xinjiang fruits use the densely woven highway network to "quickly" enter the table of inland consumers.
"Inner Xinjiang is ringed up, and entering and leaving Xinjiang quickly." Today, the total mileage of expressways in Xinjiang has exceeded 5,500 kilometers. On the basis that all prefectures and cities have entered the era of expressways, the "county-county-level highway" has been realized. The highway ports that have been open all year round basically have access to secondary roads, and 118 bilateral international road transport routes have been opened with neighboring countries, accounting for one third of the country's total. G30 Lianhuo Expressway, G3012 Tuhe Expressway, G3013 Ka-Yi Expressway, G3015 Queta Expressway and other expressways fly across the Tianshan Mountains from north to south, smooth logistics and people flow, and outline a new map of desert oasis economic development.
