Work gets under way on polar ocean park
30 March 2015
Shanghai Daily Excerpt



CONSTRUCTION began yesterday on a massive polar-themed ocean park in the Pudong New Area that is scheduled to open in 2017.

Shanghai Haichang Polar Ocean World — which is set to cover almost 30 hectares — will include 12 display venues, four marine animal interactive programs, three theaters and another 15 entertainment facilities, said developer Haichang Holdings.

Haichang said the park aims to showcase a broad range of Arctic and Antarctic wildlife, but did not give details.

Teams involved in the design of Disneyland and Sea World parks have been invited to help with planning and concept design, said officials.

The developer said these teams will help coordinate the park’s overall function, combining entertainment and education with animal displays.

Haichang also said that the park will combine both international and Chinese elements — especially Shanghai features — but gave no details.

*************************

Shanghai Haichang Polar Ocean World will be located near Dishui Lake — also known as Waterdrop Lake — in the Lingang area at the southeast of the city.

It’s a one-and-a-half-hour drive from People’s Square in the city center and 30 minutes by car from Pudong International Airport.

By Metro, it will take 42 minutes to travel from Longyang Road station in the Pudong New Area to Dishuihu station once Metro Line 16 is complete.

City plans to build ‘hanging railway’

SHANGHAI plans to build a “hanging railway” to transfer passengers between commercial, port and riverside areas, the service provider of the railway said today.

The suspended, driverless passenger suspension railway known as H-Bahn has been used in Dortmund and Dusseldorf, Germany, since the 1980s.

The network will be built in Jing’an, Yangpu and Baoshan districts, Germany-based Air Train International announced today at the Rail Metro China 2015 exhibition.

The governments of the three districts have completed early evaluations to carry out the project. The evaluation will take about two years while construction will take another two years, Bao Zaiyong, an official with the company in charge of the project told Shanghai Daily.

The trains run automatically and are centrally controlled. They have a maximum speed of 30 kilometers per hour, Bao said.

Each train can carry about 70 passengers while a maximum of eight trains can be connected and run together during rush hours, he said.

Shanghai to get Legoland
10 April 2015
Shanghai Daily

THE first Legoland Discovery Center in Shanghai is expected to open in the spring of 2016 as the company behind the leisure attraction intends to further expand its footprint in the city.

The UK’s Merlin Entertainments Group Ltd said yesterday that it will invest almost 100 million yuan (US$16.1 million) in the nearly 3,000-square-meter indoor facility inside Parkside Plaza in the city’s Putuo District.

Designed as a playground for families with children from 3 to 10 years old, the indoor attraction will start construction in the second quarter of 2015, and open to public in the spring of 2016, Merlin said.

The world’s second-largest leisure company operates Madame Tussauds and Changfeng Ocean World Aquarium in Shanghai, as well as 10 other facilities in Asia.

Oh you poor bastards. Legoland is about the most money grabbing place in my country; an hour's queue for each ride (the most one can do is about 4), and over $100 for a queue jumper ticket (that still takes an hour but means you have to wait somewhere else).

Hopefully Shanghai's will be a vast improvement.

107-year-old bridge to be renovated
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
April 13, 2015


Eastday

WORK will start next weekend to dismantle Zhejiang Road Bridge at Suzhou Creek for major renovations lasting a year, an official said.

Because there are other bridges across the creek, traffic shouldn’t be affected, said officials.

The revamp will fix structural problems on the steel structure that dates back to 1908, while keeping its original look, said Qian Cheng, project manger for the renovation work.

The bridge will be transported by truck to a workshop 100 meters away for the renovation.

This is the second steel bridge across the creek to be dismantled and renovated, following Waibaidu Bridge.

“Though the bridge still looks in good condition, underneath it is severely rusted and thorough renovations are necessary,” Qian said.

The bridge, which has seen heavy use over the years, has undergone various renovations in recent years — including a major project in 2008 when the structure was covered with anti-rust paint.

Nanpu Bridge off limits
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
April 17, 2015

By meng619 from a Chinese photography forum :



NANPU Bridge will be closed for five hours tomorrow morning for maintenance checks, the city’s traffic authority said yesterday.

Engineers will carry out an inspection and run various tests between midnight and 5am, the Shanghai Transportation Commission said on its official microblog.

Diversions will be in place for the duration of the closure, which is the first in the bridge’s 23-year history, it said.

Nanpu Bridge, which opened in November 1991, was built to carry about 30,000 vehicles a day, though the actual figure is now nearer 120,000.

As a result, the cable-stayed structure, which spans the Huangpu River, needs to be assessed to ensure its safe operation, the commission said.

Pudong marks 25 dramatic years
2015-04-18
China Daily Excerpt


A current view of the Pudong New Area (top) contrasts with one taken in the early 1990s after construction work began. [YANG HUANMIN AND JIN RONG/FOR CHINA DAILY]

The Pudong New Area in Shanghai is marking its 25th anniversary-rising from rural farmland to become an engine for economic and social development in the city and the nation.

During this time, with the area's skyline changing rapidly, it has been transformed into an outward-looking and modern urban district with multiple functions.

According to Shen Xiaoming, secretary of the Party Committee in Pudong, "The area has followed the national strategy from the central government to focus on opening-up and innovative reform, which has seen it become a powerful engine for China in just over two decades."

Pudong, on the east bank of the Huangpu River, has become an international financial, shipping and trading center for Shanghai and China.

On April 18, 1990, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council announced the opening-up of Pudong.

Compared with 1990, the size of the economy in Pudong has risen by 118 times, total fiscal revenue has increased 290 times and regional fiscal revenue has grown 137 times.

By the end of last year, the combined annual cargo tonnage of Waigaoqiao Port and Yangshan Port, both of which are connected to Pudong, exceeded 32 million TEUs (20-foot equivalent units), a figure unsurpassed worldwide.

The volume of imports and exports passing through Pudong reached $260 billion, making up 55.7 percent of the total for Shanghai. The area also houses 844 regulatory financial institutions and the offices of 308 of the world's top 500 companies.

Since 1990, Pudong has launched China's first stock exchange in Lujiazui, welcomed a group of foreign banks led by Fuji Bank from Japan, merged Nanhui district, and set up the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone, all of which pushes it to move ahead with the second round of transformation.

Yan’an tram planned
Shanghai Daily
April 24, 2015

THE construction of a tram line running parallel to Yan’an Road from the Bund to the Huqingping Highway in Qingpu District is under consideration. The project is expected to get the green light before the end of the year, though no information about when it will be built is currently available. The Shanghai government is planning to build more than 800 kilometers of tram lines across the city in the coming years, though just 9.8km of track is in operation at present, all of it in the Pudong New Area.

2 more P+R parking on Line 9
April 28, 2015
Shanghai Daily

SONGJIANG District will build another two P+R (Park and Ride) parking lots along Metro Line 9 this year to relieve pressure on road traffic in the city.

The two parking lots will be located at Dongjing and Sijing stations but officials did not reveal when the parking lots will become operational. Officials said the ban on use of highways for non-Shanghai car plates during rush hours was pushing up demand for parking spaces, especially for people who live in the outskirts of the city.

Since April 15, cars without local plates are banned on the highways from 7am to 10am and 4pm to 7pm. The P+R parking lots allow commuters to drive to the metro stations, park their cars there and take the train to the destination for as little as 10 yuan per day. Songjiang already has a P+R parking lot at Sheshan Station and at the Songjiang University Town station. Till last year, the city had a total of 12 P+R parking lots.

I can't understand why this thread is so quiet...


It should be so active, at least, as the New York or London threads...

Surprisingly very few skyscrapers are now under construction in Shanghai, since Shanghai Tower is pretty much complete.

There are plenty of threads in the other sections for specific projects. So we don't repeat them here. Refer to the following index threads :

it's not about repeating them, it's about putting them in the same place - ease of surfing. Compare this thread with every other city thread, eg London, Paris, Istanbul, NYC, etc etc which gets thousands of hits thanks to the constant updates (yes, that means repeating the project), and the fact most of the main projects will always be in the same few pages at the front.

Trying not to repeat projects completely kills a thread. Because one project is mentioned 20 pages back, and thus not 'repeated' means people visiting don;t see it, and instead get only dry newspaper reports on the garbage collection dates, or zoning laws etc. It's not like someone looking for the state of Shanghai's current construction is happily going to trawl through 127 pages to get any semblance of an overview. Rather they'd also just conclude that nothing's going on in the city.

Once again compare the Chinese city threads (both content and visitor count) with the rest. It's a shame because there's so much going on, that's effectively off the radar now, and this website would be substantially bigger and more enjoyable otherwise.

You can propose to the section's mods to harmonize the sections, but the setup here now means people need to work a little bit harder and make a few more clicks to find their project of choice, and this division is for good practical reasons.

I think the results speak for themselves. People are not going to work harder, they'll just abandon the thread.

For example the London thread gets 4x more views and 5.5x more discussion.

By comparison look at this thread. It gets clicked on enough - (although it gets 8x less clicks per post than say Toronto), it still gets more so per post than London - yet hardly any replies or visitor contributions. In short it's lots of visitors clicking on the thread, seeing only boring articles on local council policy, and leaving.

In short by rights, it should be the biggest thread on the forum.
