G40 traffic ban unveiled for flower expo

A TRAFFIC ban will be imposed on certain parts of the G40 expressway during the upcoming 10th China Flower Expo held on Chongming Island, police said yesterday.

The ban will affect G40 traffic on weekends during the expo, which runs from May 21 until July 2, and during the Dragon Boat Festival holiday from June 12 to 14.

From 7am to 1pm on those days, small passenger cars and trucks will be prohibited from traveling on the expressway from urban Shanghai to Chongming, Changxing and Hengsha islands, and in the reverse direction from 1pm to 8pm.

It was previously announced that two lanes in both directions from Wuzhou Avenue at the Zhangyang Road N. overpass in Pudong along G40 to the expo venue would be reserved for large tourist buses from May 15 to July 2.

The G40 is the only road that links Chongming Island with the rest of the country, with traffic volume increasing in recent years.

Police said the traffic ban is designed to relieve the amount of traffic on the expressway during the expo, which a huge number of people are expected to attend.

Also, small passenger cars with non-Shanghai license plates will be prohibited from using the Changjiang Tunnel Bridge on the G40 in the direction of Chongming Island from June 11 to 14, and on weekends until the expo closes.

Around the expo venue, which is in the Dongping National Forest Park area, all motor vehicles without passes or reserved parking licenses will be prohibited in certain sections from 8am to 9pm during the expo.

The area is surrounded by Changzheng Highway, Dongfeng Highway, Fengying Road, Dongrui Road, Beiyan Highway, Panlong Highway, Caogang Highway and Jianshe Highway; Changzheng and Caogang highways are still open to traffic.
