Lujiazui skyway links Metro with high-rises

WHITE-COLLAR workers will soon be able to walk from the Metro station in the high-traffic Lujiazui area to their offices in a cluster of skyscrapers via a winding skyway, the project builder said today.

A 540-meter-long elevated walkway connecting the Lujiazui Metro Station with the Jinmao Tower, Shanghai World Financial Center, and Shanghai IFC has been built today, said Shanghai Urban Construction Engineering Group.

It is the main part of a skyway network designed to let commuters walk above ground-level traffic to their office buildings which they long complained as being "highly visible but not easily accessible."

The skyway's ring-shaped overpass, a platform and a corridor have already been put into use. People can reach the buildings via the skyway without crossing roads, the builder said.

Construction on the 9-meter-width skyway started last August.
