Cool aerial pic. I know it's off topic, but does anyone know if their planning to build some more bridges over the Huangpu? Seems like the city could do with more.

I beg to differ...US smog problems peaked in the early '70's, and have been declining ever since, as emmissions controls became mandatory for cars, and now, diesel trucks.

There are 8 tunnels and 4 bridges built across the river last year, now there should have been over 10 tunnels, so there is no point in building more bridges

Have you been there?????

I think in some ways its actually cleaner than LA, certainly far higher in density. What's shown in that pic is hardly a sprawling mess, most of what's shown is simply variable densities. Much of it high densities. It's not perfectly planned but it's certainly not the worst.

Almost 3/4 of the air pollution (and water pollution in the great lakes)
here in southern Ontario Canada is from the USA, mostly Ohio.

sorry, back on track...

Imagine that aerial picture with the Shanghai Tower in it.
It will really stick out!

I really hope they redesign the surrounding streetscape - it just looks so suburban at the moment - no human interaction. No matter how tall buildings are if things look suburban at street-level then it's suburban.

I believe traffic in the area is already unbearable as things stand. As for pedestrian traffic, just wait for construction to end, there will be no room for a dime to fall to the floor. And I'm just talking about the tourists.

I don't think so - apart from the tunnel entrances/exits the roads around there are far from saturated with traffic. Even if they are making the roads more car-friendly is never the answer to alleviating congestion. The trouble with that area is that the roads are big but there aren't that many of them. On the other side of the river there are plenty of capillaries which work much more efficiently.

Well maybe - but they'd all be miserable old sods walking with their heads down to the metro station 10 minutes away with no street-scene to distract them from the long and tedious walk.

So do you want them to be saturated?

Quite on the contrary.

What's a "street-scene"? Bars? Magazines? Do you realize the whole of the area is still a construction site? It's only normal it cannot be a pleasant place to relax yet.

He meant the area between the really big towers.
