关于我

三尺讲台是我的T台。选择了就不后悔,在与教育流氓叫板的呐喊声中像自己手中的粉笔一样,给孩子们描绘美好的未来,自己变成微不足道的粉末。

巴铁拆除

Transit Elevated Bus demolished

Workers have started demolishing a test site for the futuristic "straddling bus" in Qinhuangdao City, north China's Hebei Province, as the contract is set to expire.

在中国北部城市河北省秦皇岛市,因合同到期,工人已开始拆除颇具未来感的“巴铁”试验线。

The 22-meter-long Transit Elevated Bus (TEB) was envisioned to allow cars to pass underneath and maintain traffic flow. It had a test run at a newly built site in Qinghuangdao's Beidaihe District in August last year.

在最初的构想中,这辆长达22米的巴铁试验车可容纳汽车在下层通行,从而保持交通顺畅。去年8月,试验车在秦皇岛北戴河区新建试点曾进行过试运行。

But questions about its technical feasibility and application, as well as the Beijing-based developer's financial health, have bogged it down.

但是,巴铁技术的可行性和适用性,及其北京开发商财务状况均存在问题,使这一项目最终陷入停滞。

Tests on the TEB stopped last October and the site had only two people working as keepers, according to local residents. Some residents living nearby complained the test site affected transportation.

据当地居民称,巴铁早在去年10月便已停止试验,场内仅布置两人负责看护工作。一些附近居民曾抱怨该试点影响交通。

A source said the Beidaihe District government has refused the developer's appeal to extend the land contract that will expire in July. Now the transport vehicle has had its power connection cut off, and the test rails are being removed.

有消息来源称,巴铁开发商的用地合同于7月到期,而北戴河区政府拒绝续签。现在,巴铁的用电已切断,试验线也正在拆除。

demolish  拆除
