NIGHT FAIR FAREWELL

Changli Road food street shut down for rec­ti­fi­ca­tion

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - CITY PANORAMA -

Apop­u­lar Shang­hai night spot near Changli Road and Licheng Road of Pudong New Area, known as Changli Road night fair, was shut down re­cently for con­cen­trated rec­ti­fi­ca­tion. Be­fore that, over 20 shops and res­tau­rants there were op­er­at­ing with­out li­censes or per­mits.

Shoun­ing Road of Huangpu district, fa­mous with its cray­fish, is also go­ing through a sim­i­lar rec­ti­fi­ca­tion for the same rea­sons. The news sparked heated on­line gos­sip, with some ne­ti­zens rem­i­nisc­ing about hang­ing out along the street at mid­night and oth­ers ap­plaud­ing the mu­nic­i­pal gov­ern­ment’s de­ci­sion to keep Shang­hai safe and clean.

Such fairs are of­ten the source of nu­mer­ous com­plaints from res­i­dents of nearby neigh­bor­hood com­plexes be­cause of its rowdy af­ter-hours at­mos­phere. In re­cent years, Shang­hai has been mak­ing con­tin­u­ous ef­forts to im­prove the en­vi­ron­ment and san­i­ta­tion of such places. With the help of the mu­nic­i­pal gov­ern­ment, many of th­ese res­tau­rants and ven­dors will ob­tain proper li­censes and per­mits and then be al­lowed to re­open.
