A plan to cut down trees to accommodate the construction of a new subway line in the eastern Chinese city of Nanjing has been suspended following complaints from the public. According to state news agency, Xinhua, people in the city protested after several trees on a stretch of the city’s Taiping Road disappeared during the construction of the city’s subway Line 3 earlier this month. Following the complaints, Nanjing’s authorities have reportedly changed the plans, saving an estimated 900 trees. The decision comes too late to save approximately 600 trees however, which have already been uprooted.
