Key City Development Issues

Kaili City is experiencing rapid urbanization growth alongside growth in tourism. The existing long-distance buses have terminals located in the city center, which creates serious environmental, safety, and noise issues. The worsening traffic congestion,  particularly during peak tourist season negatively affects the life of residents.  To address this issue, the city intends to restructure its overall transport infrastructure, as indicated in its 13th Five-Year Plan.

Details of Cooperation

Prior to CDIA’s intervention, the Kaili Eastern Green Public Transport Hub Project was already established, with a completed feasibility study (FS). However, considering the limited financial and operational capacity of the city to implement the project, the Kaili City Government sought to capitalize on the public-private partnership (PPP) approach. CDIA’s assistance, therefore, was focused on specifying the project positioning, development timeline, and operational strategy, to optimize the existing design, combined with domestic and international experience, and to refine the investment return forecast. It also sought to help Kaili Government prepare the implementation of the PPP project, and ensure that the first phase can facilitate the drafting of procurement contracts, agreements, articles, and other relevant documents. Finally, CDIA aimed to enhance the city’s capacity for the design, development, and operation of such a complex transport hub under a PPP model.

Expected Development Outcomes

When implemented, the project is expected to result in significant improvements in environmental conditions as well as mobility of residents and tourists alike. Specifically, it will reduce greenhouse gas emission, as well as dust through reduced congestion,, replacement of diesel buses with electric buses, and adopting emission reduction technologies and materials in the new bus hub. The rationalization of public transport will also increase energy efficiency through an integrated transport hub. Furthermore, it is expected to enhance the income of local residents through reinvigorated tourism and by connecting the Majiang and Taijiang counties with economic and social resources of Kaili City.
