Key urban expressway project on track

A MAJOR urban expressway project to relieve congestion and improve the traffic network in Pudong’s southern riverside area will be completed this year, officials said yesterday.

The Jiyang Road project stretches 7.1 kilometers from Lupu Bridge in the north to the boundary of Minhang District in the south.

At present, the construction of elevated roads has been completed, allowing rapid transit with Inner, Middle and Outer Ring roads.

Construction of ground-level carriageways is set to be finished by the end of November, with some sections to be opened to the public as early as June, according to the Pudong Construction and Transportation Commission.

Construction of another major project, the east-west passage, is also under way.

The 7.8km rapid transit system, acting as extension of Yan’an Elevated Road, comprises Pudong’s major thoroughfare Pudong Avenue and passageways underneath it.

It is part of the city’s largest and most challenging comprehensive traffic project which also includes Metro lines and cross-river tunnels.

The east-west passage starts from Yan’an Road E. Tunnel’s exit in Pudong in the west and ends at Jinqiao Road in Pudong in the east.

Construction of Pudong Avenue has been partly completed. At present, it is open as a two-way four-lane carriageway, and around the middle of December all six lanes are set to open.
