Pudong celebrating with a splash of color

FOUR large floral displays in the Pudong New Area will add color to the upcoming National Day holiday and the second China International Import Expo in November.

A flower landscape in Lujiazui will be themed on the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

Covering about 1,800 square meters, it features flowers such as bougainvillea and primroses and will be lit up at night.

At the exit of S1 Huaxia elevated road which leads to the Pudong International Airport, a huge display will feature peonies and magnolia, representing Shanghai.

The “Golden Times” display at Shayan Square on Century Avenue will cover about 1,500 square meters.

It will have a water ripple effect and it is comprised of pink azalea, Chinese flowering crabapple and marigolds.

At the intersection of Expo Avenue and Shangnan Road, a 500-square-meter exhibit showcases flower lanterns, and draws inspiration from lantern paper-cuts through peony, Chinese flowering crabapple, iris and marigolds.

Autumn flowers will be used in about 91,000 square meters of flowerbeds and landscapes across Pudong, greenery authorities said. 

Sanitation workers in Pudong are geared up to ensure a superb environment for the second CIIE. On the 1.5-kilometer riverfront of Binjiang Avenue from Lujiazui Road W. to Pudong Road S., the number of sanitation workers will be increased to 64 from October 10 for the CIIE from the current 34.

The goal is that any trash will be removed within 10 minutes, with no dust on guardrails and benches. Every sanitation worker has more than 20 tools. 

“Trash inside greenery can be difficult to reach, and these tools help a lot,” said Huang Xinsheng, a sanitation worker who uses a special blade to remove chewing gum.
