Road construction under way at Disneyland

THOUGH bidding has not started to choose contractors for the city's Disneyland project, preparation for roads in the theme park is in full swing, constructors told Shanghai Daily.

"The muddy land in the area is not suitable for road construction, so we are treating the muddy surface by a special method to ready the land for road construction. It's progressing smoothly," said Xu Zheng, general manager of the Shanghai Construction Group, the project constructor.

"The city authorities have not announced the bidding procedure to select equipment contractors for the park," he added.

A 40 billion yuan (US$6.1 billion) budget for infrastructure has been approved for the first Disneyland Park on China's mainland. The sum is equal to Pudong's facility expenditure for last year's World Expo.

Meanwhile, the group is currently building the 632-meter-high Shanghai Tower in Pudong's Lujiazui area and has already built up to the 10th floor, Xu said. It will be the tallest building in China and the second tallest in the world.
