Jinan, capital of East China's Shandong province, is accelerating construction on its transportation projects, according to a report at a news conference held by the local government on July 5.

An expansion project on the Jinan Yaoqiang International Airport is currently underway. The project received nearly 50 billion yuan ($7.74 billion) in investment and aims to develop the airport into a 4F airport that meets the highest international standards.

The airport will be able to accommodate 50 million passengers by 2030 and 80 million by 2050. It will develop into an international hub connecting Japan, South Korea, and other Northeast Asian countries.

Jinan is also improving its high-speed railway network. By 2025, the citys high-speed railway will increase by 315 kilometers, and the Jinan-Zhengzhou High-speed Railway and Jinan-Laiwu High-speed Railway will complete construction.

Construction on waterways has also been speeding up, and a restoration project on the Xiaoqing River is currently underway. The Xiaoqing River passes through five cities – Jinan, Binzhou, Zibo, Dongying, and Weifang. The Jinan section of the river is 23.34 kilometers in length. Construction of the Jinan Port started this year as well. Its comprehensive transit capacity is expected to reach 6.64 million tons per year.
