Relief for Huashan Road traffic due next summer

TRAFFIC on a key downtown thoroughfare, Huashan Road, is expected to return to normal next June or July after more than two years of blockages for subway construction.

The road is affected as builders are working on the nearby Jiao Tong University Station on the extension of Metro Line 11 in Xuhui District.

The station is shared by lines 11 and 10.

The track work starts after the main structure is finished, according to the builders.

Nearby residents and office workers complain about the inconveniences of the construction, which has caused lanes to be blocked and bus line routes changed.

Traffic jams are frequent in the area, which often affects the nearby elevated roads and other main arteries.

Traffic patterns on Huashan Road will be restored as Metro Line 11's extension goes into the testing phase next year.

The current Line 11 runs from suburban Jiading District to downtown Jiangsu Road. It will be stretched farther to Pudong's Luoshan Road, according to Metro authorities.
