The Road to Chongqing

Straddling the convergence of the Jialing and Yangtze Rivers, Chongqing has a unique urban form with many bridges and a complex transportation infrastructure. We will be posting more about the city and how people get around here in posts to come, but for now, we wanted to share a video of the drive south from Jiangbei District across the Chongqing Yuao Jialing River Bridge into the original city center. The voices you hear are two of the CAUPD Western Branch planners describing the many communities that make up Chongqing and the monorail train which you see towards the end of the video. I suggest watching it full screen.
