New passages to make Lujiazui pedestrian-friendly

APART from elevated walkways, underground passages will be built to make the Lujiazui central business district pedestrian-friendly.

Construction started this morning on five underground passages to connect the Shanghai International Finance Center, the Jin Mao Tower, the Shanghai Center and the green park near the Jin Mao Tower.

The new passages will also add 24,108 square meters of commercial space to the area for restaurants and shops. The construction is expected to be completed by 2014.

Underground passage construction is just one of the 11 Lujiazui projects kicked off this morning. Others include 2,144 square meters of recreational facilities along the north riverfront and a fashion street targeting white-collar workers.

Lujiazui officials said 90 Wi-Fi hotspots will be installed in the green park, bus stations and other public venues.
