Expo Shanghai breaks visitor record at noon

EXPO Shanghai this noon broke the history record high of the number of total visitors to a single World Expo.

The number of visitors entering World Expo Shanghai today reached 705,800 at 12pm, pushing the total number of World Expo Shanghai visitors to 64.29 million and surpassing previous record of 64.22 million visitors set by World Expo Osaka in 1970.

The Expo, which ends on October 31, still has 16 days to run including today.

To cope with the extremely big crowd, all Shanghai TV channels are showing a flash sub title which said "Currently there are 750,000 people in World Expo Site, please choose another date to visit the Expo."

However, the site still remains open to public and people can still enter.

The city government has enacted its peak traffic program, local TV reported. But so far the only measures taken are adding more buses to serve the Expo site and sending more policemen to guide traffic. No road has been blocked or closed.
