Tighter security in Beijing for National Day

BEIJING is soon to put tighter security and traffic controls in place for the upcoming National Day holidays, according to public security authorities.

By September 15, police forces, including the armed police, in Beijing and its six neighboring regions will be required to carry out night patrols.

Overhauls of safety in workplaces and key institutions will also be launched, Zhang Xinfeng, vice minister of the Public Security Ministry, said at a working conference of the Ministry of Public Security earlier this week.

The conference also said traffic administrations in Beijing and surrounding areas would set up more checkpoints to enhance security control over vehicles from places outside the capital.

The Public Security Bureau of Beijing issued a provisional regulation earlier this month on its official Website, stipulating traffic limits on incoming vehicles between September 15 and October 8.

The order bans the transport of toxic or dangerous chemicals without permits issued by traffic authorities.

Cargo vehicles, tractors and tricars will not be allowed to enter Beijing's sixth ring road except for the transport of daily necessities to the city and supplies for the National Day celebrations.

The regulation also reduced the period of validity of provisional permits for incoming passenger and cargo vehicles to three days from seven days.
