while this rendering is looking superb, I would rather not have it built. Just look how much boston had spent on the big dig due to some wild constructions in the 50s. Maybe they can build it in other parts of shanghai, but not in pudong

With thousands of vehicles increasing every week, they definitely need it. The traffic in Pudong is already worse than ever. They definitely need skywalks to prevent more accidents. I saw a YouTube video before where vehicles in Pudong is cramming like ants and hundreds of people walking across the streets. They definitely need it or they may suffer in the future.

I've jaywalked in Lujiazui (the nearest crossing was like 200m away) and it felt like playing Frogger. My friend's shoe tip got run over by a car, but thankfully he retracted his toes quickly enough. A skywalk would be very helpful. Right now, the only effective crossing is the Metro station (it does have 10+ exits), but one has to remember where all of them lead to.

On a side note, Shanghai had its displeasure with skywalks as well -- there was one at Nanjing Road and People's Square, and they replaced it with a tunnel after a few years.

It is just next logical step in this kind of environment, I think they should make them movable.

Maybe they should just make the roads narrower. This isn't the 2nd century AD where the wider your roads are, the better your city. Making the roads as wide as they were was just a very childish display of poor planning. Like WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?!?!?! Not only is it terribly inconvenient and a pain in the ass for pedestrians, it makes Lujiazui look so much worse than it couldve been. Lujiazui has a huge bucktooth gap in the middle of skyscrapers. No other CBD has roads that wide, not because they can't build wide roads but because it is utterly retarded. Even adding bridges won't make buildings closer to each other. It lacks density and vibrancy and with roads so wide, it will stay that way.

how long will it take to finish the skywalk.

btw, why are they building the skywalk before all those proposed buildings are being built, I thought their service is to connect buildings together.
