Residents Benefit from City’s Improvements

Residents benefited from city's improvementsMore than ten million residents have benefited from all the infrastructure development that the city has undergone to prepare for the 12-day Summer Universiade games. The adding of more Metro lines have cut most of the city’s residents travel time by half.

When Shenzhen was chosen as the host city for the 26th Universiade in 2007, the city began improving its infrastructure, remodeled and upgraded main roads and spent 75 billion yuan to construct the five new Metro lines. The city also renovated older buildings, reinforced community based security facilities, and renovated urban villages that are now home to many of the city’s low income families.

The city government also took the opportunity to decrease the gap of the city’s growing population from the shortage of social, cultural and sports facilities. A total of twenty two venues were built for the games and were placed in urban communities and universities which will be retained to be used by local residents after the games.
