Xicheng District Takes Various Measures to Cope with Snowfall
The urban area of Beijing saw its first large-scale snowfall of the year on February 12, so Xicheng District was covered with white snow.
In order to avoid the inconvenience caused by the snow, the Xicheng District Sanitation Center quickly launched an emergency plan for snow-sweeping and ice-scraping. The sanitation center cleared roads in the order of "overpass as priority, and then road", "major roads as priority, and then other roads" and "clearing a road first, and then its both sides". And they used small snow-sweeping and ice-scraping machines to clear pedestrian walkways, underground passages and overpasses, back streets and alleys, public squares and other areas, while taking into account the main roads in large residential areas, hospitals, and schools. They have made efforts to ensure that the road surface does not freeze, and to keep the roads clear and convenient for the public.
It is reported that as of 11:00 on February 12, the Xicheng District Sanitation Center had sent 2166 sanitation workers, 151 vehicles and 370 pieces of snow removal equipment, and applied 45.1 tons of snow melting agent to clear roads.
