Problems and Countermeasures of Urban Rail Transit Construction in China

Jingzhi Guo


In the 21st century, the over dependence on cars in China’s urban development has led to a series of problems, which have seriously affected the development of contemporary cities. The problem of communication has become the bottleneck of the development of many cities in China. Therefore, the rise of urban rail transit is an inevitable trend. The construction and development of rail transit is an effective way to solve urban diseases, such as traffic congestion, traffic pollution, poor green travel environment and difficult parking. In the period of great development opportunity of rail transit, it is necessary to discuss how to scientifically plan urban rail transit system, promote urban intensive development and improve urban traffic conditions. Combined with the current situation of rapid development of urban rail transit in China, this article analyzes the main problems existing in the development of urban rail transit at present, and puts forward the guiding ideology and main countermeasures for the development of urban rail transit in the future: do what you can and develop steadily to effectively avoid the hidden dangers brought about by blind development; further strengthen the scientific nature of urban rail transit planning and maintain the seriousness of planning; further improve the investment and financing mode of urban rail transit. Some suggestions are also put forward for the key problems to be solved in the near future.
