ZHOUQU, Gansu, Jan. 28 (Xinhua) -- Zhouqu County in northwest China's Gansu Province is prone to be hit by geological disasters. To ensure people's safety, a relocation project was launched in June last year to move residents who are facing dangers posed by possible natural disasters to a new district in Lanzhou, capital of Gansu.
So far, more than 3,000 people have moved to the relocation site. As the Spring Festival is approaching, the new arrivals will celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year at their new homes for the first time.
The relocation project plans to relocate 42,401 people in two batches. The first batch will be completed in three years, with the aim of relocating 12,415 people.
