Getting from A to B easily

Zhou Yize, deputy head of the service department of Minhang Traffic Police, served as chief of expo traffic for the third year.

One of his principal tools was a “customized map” drawn by hand, showing every detail of expo entry and exit spots, and important sites requiring extra attention. The map was distributed to all traffic officers.

The map helped police officers from other parts of the city become familiar with roads, parking areas and neighborhoods off their beaten track. It detailed security routes where large numbers of passengers and traffic were expected.

“Each year, traffic condition can vary,” Zhou said. “Last year, we had to keep restructuring parking areas because there were so many visitors driving to the venue.”

The traffic team was most nervous, Zhou said, when an official fleet of cars was in the expo grounds. It used real-time videos to ensure nothing was out of order.

“After lunch, morning visitors would be leaving and afternoon visitors would be arriving,” he said. “That’s the first peak. Then the second flood came around dinnertime, and the final big traffic flow came as expo closed for the day and staff were leaving.”

He added, “We improved our work and adopted drones to help us patrol this year.”
