China to build "maritime highway" (2)

By Xue Zhiwei (The Economic Daily)

16:55, December 26, 2011

According to the "Overall Plan of the National Coastal Ship Routing", China will eventually implement the ship routing in six trunk lines, five ports (areas) and 15 important waters of the branch line, fully covering the key routes, main ports and important waters along the coast.

The plan makes it clear that China will develop the coastal route system with the main north-south waterway channel as the trunk route and the sea routes of important coastal waters and main ports as the branch route.

A total of 78 trunk routes and branch routes were planned, including 16 two-way trunk routes with a width of 6 sea miles, 49 two-way branch routes with a width of 3 sea miles, three deep water routes with a width of 1,000 meters, and 10 recommended routes.

Cao said the ship routing is planned aiming at certain navigable water, which is similar to a city road; the path planning is directed at the navigation routes through which the ship moves from one area to another area, which is similar to an inter-city road. By "dot and line" combination and mutual complementation, ship routing and path planning will join hands in building a complete "maritime highway" network.
