City says it won't let bike lanes disappear
Shanghai Daily
Jun 24, 2013

CITY officials plan to build more bicycle lanes to Metro stations, traffic hubs and scenic spots, as well as expand the bicycle rental service tested at Metro stations, traffic authorities said yesterday.

The pledge was made in response to the concerns of local legislators about the loss of bicycle lanes.

Traffic officials affirmed that the city will encourage more use of bicycles to help share the traffic burden and make it more feasible to safely ride bicycles for leisure, the Shanghai Construction and Transport Commission said.

"Some leisure bicycle lanes and pedestrian ways will be built at local parks, green areas as well as scenic zones along the Huangpu River," the commission's said in a reply to legislators.

Zhu Ru'an, a local legislator, said that the number of motor vehicle lanes "has been increasing dramatically while many lanes for bicycles have been sacrificed to meet the demand, giving ways to the vehicle lanes to meet the surging demands.

In Lujiazui in the Pudong New Area, for instance, there are no lanes for bicycles. A bicycle lane on the Gubei Road in Changning District, meanwhile, has been transformed into a motor vehicle lane, according to Zhu.

The commission promised in its reply that it would allow the absence of bicycle lanes on fewer than 5 percent of local roads.

Also, the bicycle rental service piloted at suburban Metro stations will be expanded.

The government will focus on solving the problem of "the last 1 kilometer," long a source of complaints by residents who say they have trouble completing their commute, officials said.

The bikes are now available in some districts such as Minhang and Pudong.

Work progresses on cross-river tunnels
Shanghai Daily

June 29 -- Construction is progressing well on two tunnels that cross under the Huangpu River and both are expected to open by 2015, Shanghai Chengtou Corp, the builder, said yesterday.

Hongmei Road S. Tunnel will stretch 5.26 kilometers and connect Fengxian District to the Middle Ring Road in the city's south, officials said. Construction has been completed on the western tube of what will be the city's longest and deepest cross-river tunnel. The deepest part of the tunnel is 59 meters beneath the bottom of the river.

Construction has been completed on both tubes of the Changjiang Road Tunnel. It will be the city's largest tunnel upon completion, according to Shanghai Chengtou.

It will have six lanes going in both directions and is expected to ease traffic on the Outer Ring Road, traffic authorities said. The builder said natural light will be guided into the tunnel 10 hours per day, which can cut electricity consumption by up to 40 percent.

Meanwhile, the city's traffic authority plans to place travel restrictions on the Changjiang Tunnel-Bridge. The number of vehicles using the tunnel and bridge during peak hours has exceeded design limits, creating potential safety risks.

The restrictions will likely be announced before the National Day holiday starts on October 1.

Also, the S6 and S26 expressways will open tomorrow.

Louis Vuitton's Shanghai Store Looks Like a Giant Show
The high fashion brand opens its largest outpost yet in a developing part of the city.
May 15, 2013
http://www.psfk.com/2013/05/louis-vu...hai-store.html





L’Avenue is the 24-storey commercial development in Shanghai that features a four-storey retail podium, four-storey basement and an office block. Apart from being Louis Vuitton’s largest flagship store, it will also act as a landmark building in the area.

The building is a collaboration between Jun Aoki and architects Leigh & Orange – featuring fluid curves and turns down the length of the building, as well as architectural fins and lighting that succeed in creating a waterfall effect. The structure even has some environmental extras such as the ability to recycle rainwater for irrigation, reduced water consumption and green areas.

Made friends with a construction worker when I was in SH. Got to see lots of photos of cool construction projects. Also, they're fun to hang out with
