Road Project Ready

Shanghai Daily - - METRO -

Ex­pan­sion work on the sec­tion of Jing’an Dis­trict’s Wan­hangdu Road from Wun­ing Road S. to Bei­jing Road W. will be fin­ished to­day, Jing’an Dis­trict govern­ment said yes­ter­day.

The re­open­ing is ex­pected to im­prove traf­fic flow. Pre­vi­ously the road only had one lane in each di­rec­tion but now it has six lanes.

The width of the road was al­most dou­bled from 28 me­ters to 45m in some places, dis­trict of­fi­cials said. The width of the road in the most crowded sec­tion, from Bei­jing Road W. to Xinzha Road, was tripled from 8m to 24m, the dis­trict’s en­gi­neer­ing au­thor­ity said.

“I won’t be late to the of­fice any­more,” said Li Zhe, a Web­site de­signer who takes the No. 93 bus, which runs on Wan­hangdu Road, to work ev­ery day.

Work­ers also cleaned the walls of build­ings and shop signs along the road and planted more green­ery to make the area more pleas­ant, of­fi­cials said.
