Wulingshan Avenue speed limit adjusted

By Wang Xinhan | Updated : Jan 11, 2022
Recently, Zhangjiajie City has completely adjusted the speed limit along Wulingshan Avenue.

Wulingshan Avenue is the main traffic artery from the city to Wulingyuan Scenic Area, which is divided into the urban section and the scenic section. The urban section starts from the intersection of Ziwu Road, Dayong Bridge and ends at Zhangqing Highway and X018 Line, with a total length of 9.975 km; the scenic section starts from the junction with the urban section, and ends at Baizhang Gorge, with a total length of 18.2 km. The speed is limited at 40-60 km/h and 7 traffic lights are along the way.

After being completed and put into use, the avenue not only effectively improves the traffic from the city to Wulingyuan Scenic Area, but also brings great convenience to residents along the line. However, there has been a serious public concern about the speed limit of motor vehicles and the installation of electronic traffic control facilities.

In light of the traffic flow situation, the city government has optimized and adjusted the time of traffic lights, designed traffic signal lights in a more scientific way, set up physical separation facilities, and further improved traffic signs and warning signs, aiming to ensure the traffic efficiency and road safety along the Wulingshan Avenue.

At present, the speed limit of Wulingshan Avenue has been completely adjusted. The urban section is divided into the southern section and the northern section with the intersection of Zhangjiajie College as the boundary.

The speed limit in the northern section has been increased from 60 km/h to 70 km/h, while that on auxiliary roads and the southern section remains unchanged.

The speed limit of the scenic area has been adjusted from 60 km/h to 70 km/h for minivans and 60 km/h for other vehicles, and the speed on auxiliary roads has been limited at 50 km/h.
