(Xinhua) — The Yangluo port on the Yangtze River in central China’s Hubei Province will be expanded to serve regional economic development and Belt and Road Initiative, sources have said.
Plans on the second phase and third phase expansion projects passed expert appraisal in Wuhan, capital of Hubei, Friday. The first phase project went into operation at the end of last year.
The Yangluo port is an important port in middle reaches of the Yangtze River, China’s longest waterway. The expansion project will connect Yangluo port with Wujiashan rail terminal in the city, about 60 kilometers away. After the expansion, logistic costs of transferring cargoes that arrive through waterway to railroads will be greatly reduced, said Zhang Lin, director of Wuhan New Port Management Committee, which manages the Yangluo port.
