In the "thirteenth five-year period", Jingzhou upheld the concept of people-centered development, focused on making up deficiencies, improving functions and enhancing connotation, explored a path for the quality-oriented, green and intensive development of the city, continued to increase urban infrastructure investment, and accelerated the creation of an all-functional infrastructural system to further consolidate the foundation of high-quality development.

After nearly three years of development, the main line of Fuxing Boulevard, an infrastructural project with the largest investment from the Jingzhou Municipal People's Government, was fully opened to traffic on December 31, 2020. As Jingzhou's first city expressway, the boulevard stretches about 23.9 kilometers from the canal via which the water of the Yangtze River is diverted to the Han River in the west to Shanghai Boulevard in the east. The project combines an elevated expressway with a ground expressway. In two ways and six lanes, the main works connect important traffic hubs such as Jingzhou Railway Station, Shashi-Gong'an Highway and Jingzhou Airport as a key transfer channel in Jingzhou's railway-highway-airport-port integrated traffic system, as well as a future "artery" of downtown Jingzhou. A bird's-eye view shows Fuxing Boulevard lying in the north of Jingzhou like a huge dragon made of reinforced concrete. The boulevard will bring a fast, efficient and convenient city commuting experience.

The road is the foundation and artery of an urban traffic network. In the "thirteenth five-year period", Jingzhou created a city skeleton through urban road network construction, renovated dead end roads, opened up new branches, extended arterial roads, constructed 9 skeleton roads including Fuxing Boulevard and its east extension, Jingzhou Boulevard and Yanjiang Boulevard, advanced road network construction in new areas such as Jingbei Area, Shabei Area, Jingzhou Economic and Technological Development Zone, Jingzhou High-tech Industrial Development Zone, Jinan Eco-culture Tourism Zone and Guanju New City, and opened over 100 downtown roads to traffic, to further optimize the traffic network, create an internal cycle of the city and facilitate the people's travel.

A beautiful city should have both a good look and a favorable environment. A wetland park with a total investment of 140 million yuan is under intensive construction in Jingbei Area. As the first city park with the functions of greening, leisure and exercise in the area, the project will solve the problem of rainwater drainage while beautifying the city and improving city quality.

In the "thirteenth five-year" period, Jingzhou vigorously addressed the problem of black and odorous waters, advanced the comprehensive treatment of water environment, constructed and reconstructed 609 kilometers of water supply and drainage pipelines, started constructing 22.8 kilometers of utility tunnels, conducted sewage interception, de-silting and water environment treatment of 7 black and odorous waters such as Xigan Canal, Chihu Canal, Moat, Jingsha River, Jingxiang Inland River, Taishiyuan and Fanjiayuan, planted flowers and trees along roads, rivers and lakes, built parks around lakes and green belts along rivers, wove a green net by waters, and created an urban green space system of poetic and picturesque charm, to maximize ecological benefit and make the city more livable.

While improving city quality, Jingzhou is focusing on improving citizens' living environment. In the "thirteenth five-year period", Jingzhou completed the renovation of 154,200 houses in shantytowns, with a total investment of 70 billion yuan. Urban areas started the construction of over 100,000 houses with a total investment of 54 billion yuan, benefiting over 800,000 urban and rural residents. Through old community renovation, Jingzhou addressed prominent problems affecting the people's life such as road damage, impeded drainage and filthy environment, to rejuvenate old urban areas.
