Restaurant built in Qinhuai River Levee
Recently, affected by rainfall and other factors, Nanjing has launched the first level emergency response for flood control in Qinhuai River Basin. However, many high-end bars and restaurants are still open inside the yangjiawei Dyke on the Qinhuai River. These restaurants have dug in more than ten meters from the back surface of the dam and opened business in the “belly” of the dam. The deepest part of the restaurant has reached the middle line of the dam. Is it approved to build a restaurant by digging holes in the dam? Will it damage the dam body? During the reporter’s interview, Jiangning urban construction group, Nanjing Water Bureau and other relevant parties did not comment. As early as 2014, there were media reports that Jiangning urban construction group carried out the construction of bars and restaurants illegally without planning procedures. The former Jiangning District Planning Bureau has confirmed that there are no procedures for the construction, while Jiangning urban construction group has promised to “order the construction team to suspend construction and restart construction after the relevant procedures are improved.” However, in six years, the procedures promised in that year have not been completed.
