Editor’s note: The Hengqin New Area in Zhuhai, south China’s Guangdong Province, boasts a 33.4-kilometer comprehensive utility tunnel, which prevents people living there from troubling by the frequent digging up of roads for underground pipes and cable maintenance.

One of the largest in the country, the tunnel houses electricity and telecommunications cables, and pipes for water supply, reclaimed water, air cooling and vacuum garbage transport.


Though the investment for the tunnel sounds high, 2 billion yuan, the project helps save 40 hectares of land, or 56 football fields, which can be used for greater economic gains.
