Shortcut tunnel at airport to ease traffic

A SHORTCUT tunnel is being built connecting both terminal buildings at Hongqiao International Airport to relieve heavy traffic, constructors said yesterday.

The Yingbin No.3 Road Tunnel is being built beneath the southern part of the airport and runs through Changning and Minhang districts. It will be the second tunnel at the airport.

The tunnel will help cut driving time between the east and west of the airport to several minutes and reduce congestion. At present, in heavy traffic, it can take 30 to 40 minutes to pass the airport.

It should be ready by the end of 2011.

Meanwhile, the city's long-awaited Jungong Road Tunnel - connecting the Middle Ring Road on both sides of the Huangpu River - is set to open next month, constructors said yesterday.

Work has been completed on more than 85 percent of equipment installations, the Shanghai Urban Construction Group told Shanghai Daily.
