HUAINAN XIAN TRAMLINE MIXED USE STREET IN HEFEI, ANHUI PROVINCE
Huainan Xian was a freight line passage connecting Huainan City to Hefei City in the past. Now that this line has been abandoned and is within the urban area fabric local government intends to create a lively urban street integrated with tramline .
Land Use, transportation network, historical and neighborhood studies resulted in some proposals. Starting to the west will include tram depot, continuing to the east major nodal points such as northern access to the main train station and southern connection to the old city island and a number of meaningful urban opportunities were identified.
Proposed STREET, like a thread of a necklace connects these key urban nodes, which include also tram stations, while elaborating and enhancing each node to create a vibrant urban experience for pedestrians and commuters.
