About the Authors


Focusing on the technical details of greenways, this book refers to the practical experiences of international greenway construction combining with the domestic practical situations to explore the specific technical details of these problems of greenways in China and uses foreign mature design methods to solve the existing problems through technical means from the perspective of greenway users, starting with the five problems of“ connectivity, continuity, separation, accessibility and service" which are common but lack of enough attention. We hope that high quality greenways play a more and more important role in the city development in the future to become a significant step that leads the urban sustainable development.
