Guided by Xi Jinping's thought of socialism with Chinese characteristics in the new era, we will fully implement the spirit of the Nineteenth National Congress of the CPC and the Second and Third Plenary Sessions of the Nineteenth Central Committee. We will firmly establish and implement the new development concept. In accordance with the requirements of high-quality development, we need to address both the symptoms and the root causes of the problems, carry on comprehensive strategy and policy guidance, market-driven, key breakthroughs, systematic advances, taking deepening the structural reform on the supply side of transportation as the main line, taking the long-distance transportation of bulk cargo of “changing highway transportation to railway transportation, changing highway transportation to waterway transportation” as the main direction of attack. We will continue to promote the improvement of comprehensive transport networks and improve the level of transportation organization, reduce road freight traffic for bulk cargo, increase railway freight traffic, speed up the construction of a modern comprehensive transportation system, and provide a solid guarantee for winning the battle to defend the blue sky in an all-round way and for fighting a tough battle against pollution.

 

(II) Development objectives.

 

By 2020, the comparative advantages and combined efficiency of the city 's comprehensive transportation will be brought into full play.
