Cheaper eateries for top business zone

HUNGRY workers in the Lujiazui area will soon be able to eat at food stalls and restaurants on overpasses connecting the financial zone's office blocks, malls and metro stations.

At the moment, office workers say there are not enough reasonably priced outlets for breakfast and lunch in the high-end business area.

But the go-ahead has been given to temporary breakfast stalls and permanent eateries on the area's overpasses to open early next year, officials with the Lujiazui management authorities said.

Bilingual maps with details of eating places will be distributed among the 100,000 office staff soon, officials from the management commission for Lujiazui Financial and Trade Zone said yesterday. Information will also be available online.

Officials are currently selecting businesses for the new project. "Chain stores will be given priority, due to their experience running such businesses and food quality management," an official surnamed Gao said.

"We will also include Western food in our considerations, as there are many foreigners working in Lujiazui."

Authorities are also tackling complaints that it is sometimes difficult to get a taxi in the area, and say the situation is improving.

"Cabstands at Shanghai Ocean Aquarium and Super Brand Mall have already been set up," Gao said. "More will be added soon."

Shuttle bus lines connecting Metro stations, ferries and office buildings such as Jin Mao Tower and the Shanghai World Financial Center will also be introduced, officials said.
