NETDA was awarded as a “national demonstration industrial park” by the State Environmental Protection Administration and was also named a “Social Security Safe Zone” by the Jiangsu Provincial Party Committee and the Jiangsu Provincial Government. The Hu-Chong-Su Great Passage consisting of the Su-Tong Yangtze River Bridge in NETDA which sets the four world Number One records, the Chong-Qi and Chong-Hai Yangtze River Bridges and Hu-Tong Light Rail Train that are under plan and construction has made NETDA merge into the one-hour economic circle of Shanghai.
