Road closures set for marathon

TRAFFIC routes on both sides of the Huangpu River will face closures on Sunday to give way to the annual Shanghai International Marathon, police said.

Runners will cross the Huangpu on the Nanpu Bridge instead of through the Fuxing Road Tunnel like last year, giving them a city view. The starting point was also changed to the Bund instead of the Nanjing Road Pedestrian Mall.
