Lupu Bridge the likely lookout

THE sightseeing platform on top of the Lupu Bridge will open on May 2 offering the best ever view of the Expo sites on both sides of the Huangpu river.

Admission will be 80 yuan per person (US$11.76) but from May 2 to 31 this will be discounted to 38 yuan.

Sightseers will take an elevator to the bridge 50 meters above the river and then climb 300 steps up the 280-meter arch to the 100-meter-high peak where the viewing platform is located.

The viewing platform can accommodate 200 visitors at a time, and the number of visitors will be restricted to 1000 an hour. For safety reasons visitors will not be allowed on the viewing platform when it is full or if there are heavy winds or rain.

As the world's longest arch bridge with the highest sightseeing platform over the Expo site, the Lupu Bridge has been listed as a tourist site for Expo. A one-year countdown celebration to Expo will be held on the bridge on May 1.
