City bans illegal food stalls near subways

Local authorities have decided to remove illegal food stalls near Metro stations and turn the areas into public squares and toilets, officials said yesterday.

Many temporary stalls, set up near Metro stations and selling food and clothes, block the entrances and nearby pedestrian walkways.

A private meat processing stall used to occupy the space in front of the Hongqiao Road Station of Metro Lines 3 and 10, said Shi Yongliang, deputy director with the Changning District Greenery and Public Sanitation Bureau.

The stall has been demolished and the area it occupied turned into a garden with a toilet, Shi said.

The district government invested 800,000 yuan (US$132,226) to build the toilet and 2.4 million yuan for the garden, he said.

Some 5,000 square meters of illegal structures near Metro stations, especially Line 3 in Hongkou District, will be removed this year.

Inspectors will be stationed nearby to prevent the vendors from setting up stalls again, officials said.
