AUTHORITIES in western China will apply for World Cultural Heritage listing for a 3,000-year-old road.

The application would be sent to the State Administration of Cultural Heritage jointly by 11 cities in Sichuan and Shaanxi provinces along the 270-kilometer Shudao Road, or the Road of Shu Kingdom (221-263 AD), Ma Hua, mayor of Guangyuan, one of the applicant cities, said yesterday.

If the administration approved the proposal, it would forward the application to UNESCO, Ma said.
