Traveling is becoming more and more comfortable and convenient ("13th Five-Year", we have gone through this way)
"The one-way trip takes less than 3 hours, and you can go back and forth on the same day. It's so convenient!" On February 4th, the Lunar New Year, Mr. Li, who lives in Shenyang and is doing business in Beijing, got on the high-speed rail from Beijing Chaoyang Station at 9:59 in the morning and ate two meals at home. After a reunion dinner, I took the high-speed rail back to Beijing that night.
The completion of the Beijing-Harbin high-speed rail on January 22 brought the fastest high-speed rail channel for entry and exit in Northeast China, and shortened the travel time from Shenyang to Beijing by one hour.
General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out: "A mobile China is full of vitality for prosperity and development." Higher efficiency, better services, more choices... During the "13th Five-Year Plan" period, the transportation system continued to improve and service quality continued to improve , Allowing hundreds of millions of people to travel more smoothly, realizing the transition from "walking" to "walking well".
——The traffic arteries are smoother, and travel is getting faster and faster.
Highways are speeding up to link up, and "go on the go" has become a reality.
“Prairie forests, deserts, Gobi deserts, rivers and lakes, plateau icebergs... from Beijing to Xinjiang all the way to the west, all natural features are unobstructed!” The opening of the Beijing-Xinjiang Expressway in 2017 made Yang Liangguo, a self-driving travel enthusiast, excited: “ Over the years, highways extend in all directions, tourist roads reach scenic spots, and service areas along the route are complete with complete facilities and services. Self-driving tours have become more and more popular.” At present, China’s highway mileage is about 5.2 million kilometers, of which about 161,000 kilometers are expressways. Number one in the world, covering nearly 100% of cities with a population of more than 200,000.
The coverage of high-speed rail is wider, and "thousands of miles in a day" is not a dream.
The first high-speed railway crossing the Qinling Mountains—Xicheng High-speed Railway opened, making it possible to eat Xi’an meat dumplings in the morning and Chengdu Dandan noodles at noon; the Yinchuan-Xi’an high-speed railway was completed, integrating Ningxia into the national high-speed rail network for the first time; the Beijing-Xiong Intercity Railway opened, Make Beijing Daxing Airport to Xiong’an New Area within 19 minutes as soon as possible... As of the end of 2020, China’s high-speed railway operating mileage reached 37,900 kilometers, nearly doubled during the 13th Five-Year Plan period, ranking first in the world. Covering nearly 95% of cities with a population of over one million.
Among the railway passenger traffic, the proportion of high-speed railway EMUs has increased to more than 65%.
The development of aviation has been accelerated, and the convenience services have been improved.
On September 16, 2019, Gesar Airport, my country's fifth civil transportation airport with an altitude of more than 4,000 meters, was opened to air navigation in Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, Sichuan, reducing the travel time between Ganzi and Chengdu to one hour.
Beijing Daxing International Airport, Chengdu Tianfu Airport, Qingdao New Airport... During the "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan" period, 43 new airports were built and continued in my country. Civil aviation airports have covered 92% of prefecture-level administrative regions, and 39 airports have a passenger throughput of tens of millions. , The flight regularity rate exceeds 80%.
The responsible comrades of the Ministry of Transport stated that during the "13th Five-Year Plan" period, the travel service system based on road transport and the main development directions of high-speed rail and civil aviation has been improved. The passenger transport structure has continued to be optimized. The medium and long-distance passenger flow has gradually shifted from roads to high-speed rail and civil aviation.
——The level of urban and rural passenger transport has improved, making travel more and more convenient.
"Finally looking forward to this day!" On December 26, 2020, Shanxi's first subway line-Taiyuan Metro Line 2 Phase I was opened for operation. Citizen Wang Bo was very happy: "The subway runs through the city from north to south and provides punctuality for office workers. The travel guarantee of China can also alleviate traffic congestion. We look forward to the opening of other lines in succession!" During the "13th Five-Year Plan" period, the operating mileage of urban rail transit in my country increased to 7545.5 kilometers, doubling in five years.
The construction of the “transit city” has also been steadily advanced, and the 500-meter coverage rate of bus stations in built-up cities with a population of over one million is close to 100%.
Saying goodbye to “all covered in dirt on a sunny day, covered in mud on a rainy day”, and ushered in “going out on the cement road and getting on the bus”. Many rural people’s travel problems have been effectively eased during the 13th Five-Year Plan period.
"There is a shuttle bus in the village, so I don’t have to worry about sending my children to school or going to the market in the town, and I can often pick up some mountain products to sell." Life: "You can travel to and from the county in the same day!"
In September 2020, my country will achieve the goal of 100% access to hardened roads and 100% access to passenger cars in qualified towns and villages ahead of schedule, making the connection between urban and rural areas closer and smoother exchanges.
——New technologies and new formats continue to emerge, and travel is becoming more and more intelligent.
"Your checked baggage has arrived, please pick it up in time." Just before the Spring Festival, passenger Liu Ke received a notice from China Southern Airlines' WeChat official account when he flew from Yiwu, Zhejiang to Beijing, "It was difficult to know the status of checked baggage before taking the flight. , Passengers can know everything about baggage check-in, installation, transfer, arrival and other nodes, and feel relieved."
Good travel depends on technology.
If you want to take a taxi, you don’t have to wait on the side of the road, just place an order through the online ride-hailing platform; when you get out of the subway, you don’t have to walk all the way. You can "sweep" the shared bicycles with your mobile phone. During the "Five" period, the accelerated application of new technologies such as the Internet and the Internet of Things in the field of transportation has made travel more and more comfortable and comfortable——
Looking at shared travel, the daily order volume of online ride-hailing exceeded 20 million, and the average daily usage of shared bicycles was about 45.7 million, and standardized parking technologies such as "electronic fence" were gradually implemented;
Looking at highways, all 487 expressway toll stations at provincial boundaries have been cancelled, more than 200 million ETC users can enjoy smooth driving, average vehicle traffic speed has increased by 16%, road passenger transportation provincial networked ticketing services have accelerated, and road passenger electronic tickets have been launched in 11 provinces service;
Look at the railway, online ticket purchase online seat selection, face recognition in the station in seconds, mobile phone booking of special meals, remote ticket purchase all-road pass ticket and other services have been launched one after another, allowing railway passengers to get on the mobile internet express;
Looking at civil aviation, 233 airports have achieved domestic flights with code-based boarding and paperless travel. The self-check-in ratio of domestic passengers in 37 airports with tens of millions of dollars has reached 72%, and the queue time of passengers has been greatly reduced...
This year's Spring Festival, the entire transportation industry experienced a special Spring Festival.
Many people choose to celebrate the New Year on the spot and travel at staggered peaks, and the passenger flow during the Spring Festival travel has decreased significantly.
"With less passenger flow, work can't be sloppy at all!" During the Spring Festival, Wu Yingfeng, head of the Guangzhou Railway Depot Disinfection Team of Guangzhou Railway Group, and 8 post-90s colleagues stood by their posts and carefully disinfected all the trains on the next day every night. "We can't let go of the string of epidemic prevention and control!"
