Traffic to Pudong faster with 2 new tunnels

LOCAL motorists can expect less congestion and easier river crossing when two Huangpu River tunnels open to traffic in the next three days.

The long-awaited Jungong Road Tunnel will open to traffic this Friday. Traffic police said the new eight-lane tunnel is expected to relieve traffic pressure on Yangpu Bridge and Xiangyin Road Tunnel and smooth commutes between Yangpu District and Pudong New Area.

The tunnel also completes the last section of the Middle Ring Road, a highway loop around the city.

The Xizang Road S. Tunnel will also open to traffic next Tuesday, providing another road link between downtown and Pudong. It was previously used only for shuttle buses and special event vehicles during the World Expo last year.
