Car-free day to help the environment

SEPTEMBER 22 has been set as this year's car-free day for Shanghai, a local newspaper reported today.

Beijing, Tianjin and Chongqing municipalities will also join the initiative with the theme of "healthy and environmentally friendly transport - walking and cycling" set by Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, according to the Oriental Morning Post report.

Cars will be banned over five square kilometers of Shanghai from 7am to 7pm on September 22, which falls on Tuesday this year. Details have not yet been released.

The city started the initiative in 2007 and last year banned cars from Sichuan Road from 9am to 3pm. The activity started since 1999 in France and Italy.
