Disneyland project moving to next stage

THE core facilities of Shanghai Disneyland will be under construction next April, said the Shanghai Construction Commission at a news conference this afternoon.

Infrastructural construction of roads and pipelines for the Disneyland began in April this year and will be completed next March, said Jiang Shujie, a commission official.

The first phase of the park will cost 24.5 billion yuan (US$3.7 billion) and an additional 4.5 billion yuan will be spent to build supporting facilities such as hotels, shops, restaurants and entertainment venues.

Shanghai regards the project part of its efforts to become a world-class tourist destination. The first phase of Shanghai Disneyland is expected to attract 7.3 million visitors a year, Jiang said.

The amusement park is 21 kilometers from central People's Square and 12 kilometers from the Pudong International Airport, connected by highways and a Metro line.

Jiang said the municipal authorities are now inviting designs for the paradise, the first on the Chinese mainland.

He also said Shanghai invested about 100 billion yuan this year in key infrastructure projects and the budget for next year will increase substantially.
