Bridge to connect Raffles City with Metro Line 2




A second-floor bridge to join Raffles City Changning to Metro Line 3 and 4 is near completion. In addition, an underground pedestrian tunnel connecting the shopping mall with Metro Line 2 is expected to open at the end of the year.







Although the commercial complex is steps away from the Zhongshan Park Station of Metro Lines 2, 3 and 4, there was no direct access connecting the multi-purpose facility with the subway system previously.




Traffic along the west side of Kaixuan Road has resumed after it had been locked down to make way for the engineering.







Film incubator unveiled




After film “A First Farewell” received the Best Asian Future Award at the Tokyo International Film Festival last November and won the best film in the Generation Kplus Section at the 69th Berlin International Film Festival, its production company Elephant Film launched a film incubator in Changning at the beginning of the month to support young directors at every stage of filmmaking - from an initial story or even an idea to film distribution.








The distribution channel of Elephant Film, Changning-based Elemeet has started offering viewers tailored filming. It has created a crowdfunding platform for users to privatize their film-watching.





At present, Elemeet has a pool of more than 100 films and has cooperated with more than 2,600 cinemas throughout the country.




Around 3,000 organizers have completed over 3,000 screenings in 300 cities. The average seat occupancy is above 80 percent. Elemeet has built a fans’ group in 100 cities with more than 300,000 registered users.




Hence, “A First Farewell” by first-time director Lina Wang will be aired in the second half of the year through Elemeet’s exclusive C2B mode.





Elephant Film plans to produce 15 high-quality works in the next five years, six via the incubator.





District leader urges carrying garbage sorting forward




Changning will strive to become the best performer throughout the city or even the country in garbage sorting, district Party secretary Wang Weiren pointed out during a recent conference.







One of the tasks this year is to implement garbage sorting and fixed-time collection of household waste in over 90 percent of local neighborhoods while grassroots cadres, urban management officers, neighborhood committee personnel, community property management staff as well as volunteers ensure the fulfillment.




Sorting waste properly is being promoted throughout Changning. Waste dumpsters in different colors are being installed around the district.





In Chengjiaqiao Community, garbage sorting and fixed-time collection of household waste are being practiced every day, which involves every neighborhood, every business and every resident.







Residents at Hongchu neighborhood have their own “green account.” They will get 10 points as a reward for each time they sort garbage properly. They can exchange the points accumulated for items, such as a bottle of soy sauce or 10 kilograms of rice.





At Deluxe Family Gubei Garden, previously every two households shared a public trash can installed in the apartment buildings. Hence, only 60 percent of residents at the international neighborhood supported garbage sorting initially as the policy would change their habits.




Through the neighborhood management’s effort, all the 230 trash cans were removed from the apartment buildings and since then local residents threw their garbage into new recycling bins.



More than 90 percent of them abide by the new rule and separate garbage in four categories - dry, wet, recyclable and hazardous - before throwing them in different bins.
