I did now know that there was a tunnel underneath the Expo site. The only two tunnels under the Huangpu River that I have heard of are the Dalian Lu Tunnel and an unnamed tunnel that goes from the Pudong Business District to the centre of the Bund. Should a complete list of all the bridges and tunnels in Shanghai be created?

Pedestrians navigate an X-shaped elevated walkway at the intersection of Fuxing Road E. and Henan Road S. in Shanghai yesterday. The newly opened walkway is the first cable-stayed structure of its kind in the country. Besides providing a safe approach for pedestrians crossing the streets, it has no support pillars underneath to obstruct traffic.

They've constructed a workers' dormitory, but as you can see, most of the plot is filled with grass;

Wow, great updates staff. We need some renders of both Wujiang Lu Project and that one around the Expo area.

You already know what the project on Wujiang Lu / Weihai Lu looks like.

But we definitely need renders of that Expo Tower, and another tower in south Xuhui that looks like it might be quite tall. Also, there are a bunch of towers going up in Jing'An that aren't documented. I'll have some free time this upcoming week to cover them all, hopefully.

Yep, unbearable almost! Going out on photo tours is all about accepting your fate that you are going to be totally drenched in sweat already after a couple of minutes.
