Jiangxi to invest Rmb14bn linking up two Yangtze tributaries

22 January 2014
The provincial government of Jiangxi announced on 17 January that it would spend five to eight years and approximately Rmb14bn on linking two major Yangtze River tributaries, the Ganjiang and Fuhe. Both rivers merge with China’s largest lake, Poyang, before becoming part of the Yangtze trunkline. Ganjiang, the Yangtze’s seventh largest tributary and which flows through the provincial capital Nanchang, is currently capable of accommodating 100-300dwt vessels all year round.

Historically connected, the waterways of the two rivers became separated around the middle of the last century due to urbanisation and construction work.

Jiujiang, the only Jiangxi port on the Yangtze trunkline, has daily container shuttle services to Nanchang. Jiujiang port, more than 90 per cent owned by Shanghai International Port Group, has seen double digit growth in container throughput since shuttle services began in 2009. In 2013, Jiujiang’s container throughput exceeded 180,000 TEU, up 21 per cent over the previous year.
