Pedestrian overpass work begins

CONSTRUCTION started yesterday on a pedestrian overpass in the Lujiazui financial hub to help ease traffic congestion in the area.

Shanghai Urban Construction, which is building the overpass, said it will be 543 meters long and 9-meters wide. It is expected to be completed next summer.

It will provide an easier and faster way for Metro users to reach the office towers and tourism sights in the area.

The overpass starts at IFC Mall and will extend to Shanghai World Financial Center, Shanghai Urban Construction said. It will have three entrances and exits.

Residents have long complained that it is difficult for pedestrians to walk from Metro Line 2's Lujiazui Station to nearby office buildings and tourism attractions.

"The high-rises can easily be seen but they are hard to reach," an office worker in the area said.

District traffic operators introduced shuttle buses to transport subway commuters from Lujiazui Station to nearby office towers to address the complaints.

A circular footbridge is already in place near the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and Super Brand Mall.
