[InKunming--Kunming]  On September 12th, Kunming Dianchi Administration announced that they would make some improvements around Dianchi Lake concerning new bicycle lane, animal releasing, and bird watching.

A new bicycle lane will be built along Panlong River

In Kunming, with better water quality after Niulan River water diversion project, Panlong River has become a manifestation for the environment of this soon to be world-renowned tourist city. Therefore, according to Kunming Dianchi Administration, a new bicycle lane will be constructed with Panlong River, connecting ten major parks to facilitate Kunming’s tourism and enrich people’s leisure time.

Starting at Longchuan Bridge Park, this new bikeway is going to constitute a corridor with a length of 26 kilometers, leading citizens to other parks such as Tianxi Park, Crescent Pond Park, Turtle Dragon Lake, Kunming Zoo, East Wind Square, Longjiang Park, Xishan District Park Garden and Panlong River’s estuary.

In addition, the other infrastructure, namely pedestrian walkways, squares and platforms which enable people to dabble in water will also be set up to give tourists and citizens more pastimes.

Dianchi administration intends to establish release areas

Due to long shoreline and flat terrain, many people would release animals regardless of regulations. In order to standardize this kind of action and protect the eco-system of Dianchi Lake, Kunming Dianchi Administration has drafted relevant territorial management principles and has nailed down the idea of setting up specific areas for fishing and animal releasing. In the next step, those initiatives will be put into action.

An intent to build up bird watching house

In view of no bird-related facilities set in Dianchi Lake wetlands, Kunming Dianchi Administration replied that they will set up bird watching houses for bird watchers for reducing human activities’impacts.
