The city of Hohhot in North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region has been making strides in promoting its urban environment by creating a new greenway through the city, according to local media reports.
The Xiaoheihe urban greenway has a total length of 79.8 kilometers. Different construction techniques have been used according to different road types and conditions on the ground.
At present, the northern line of the Xiaoheihe greenway is basically fully accessible. The greenway along the southern side will gradually open for business.
