The Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region will build a comprehensive transportation network, reducing to one hour the commute time from the downtown areas of Beijing, Tianjin and Shijiazhuang in Hebei province to their new towns and satellite towns, as well as the travel time between Beijing, Tianjin, Baoding and Tangshan in Hebei province, according to a three-year action plan (2018-2020) released by China's Ministry of Transport on June 25.

The Ministry of Transport also said that it would promote the use of new energy vehicles and phase out old vehicles. By the end of 2020, Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region and its surrounding areas will see a reduction of more than 1 million medium- and heavy-duty diesel trucks that fail to meet National Emission Standard III.

According to the action plan, rail transport will play a more significant role in medium- and long-distance transport of commodities. By 2020, the volume of railway freight is expected to increase remarkably in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region and its surrounding areas.
