I wish it was higher than around 200 metres. Lujiazui has so many buildings around this height and then there's a sudden jump up to the 420m Jin Mao and 490m SWFC (and u/c 630m Shanghai Tower). Furthermore, the positioning of this (behind Aurora and Citi when viewed from the Bund) means you won't really be able to see it if its 200m! Let's see some between the 300-400m mark!

Shortcut tunnel at airport to ease traffic
14 December 2010
Shanghai Daily

A SHORTCUT tunnel is being built connecting both terminal buildings at Hongqiao International Airport to relieve heavy traffic, constructors said yesterday.

The Yingbin No.3 Road Tunnel is being built beneath the southern part of the airport and runs through Changning and Minhang districts. It will be the second tunnel at the airport.

The tunnel will help cut driving time between the east and west of the airport to several minutes and reduce congestion. At present, in heavy traffic, it can take 30 to 40 minutes to pass the airport.

It should be ready by the end of 2011.

Meanwhile, the city's long-awaited Jungong Road Tunnel - connecting the Middle Ring Road on both sides of the Huangpu River - is set to open next month, constructors said yesterday.

Work has been completed on more than 85 percent of equipment installations, the Shanghai Urban Construction Group told Shanghai Daily.

Action urged over condition of bridges
Created: 2010-12-17 1:53:04

SHANGHAI'S waterway administration authorities yesterday revealed that there are more than 200 dangerous bridges on the city's rivers and waterways, often old ones that cannot bear heavy vehicles, posing a danger to the public.

Inadequate maintenance and a lack of funding are to be blamed for the many bridges at risk, mainly in suburban areas, said Chen Xiuping, director of Shanghai Shipping Management Office.

Chen said state of the bridges, which are a public danger, hasn't been addressed as the city's development plan for next five years doesn't focus on the issue.

Five years ago, the city government said it would invest 9.8 billion yuan (US$1.47 billion) in waterway commerce and infrastructure as part of the last five-year plan, but only 5.9 billion yuan had been used up to this point, Chen said.

A weak bridge in Minhang District collapsed last month at midnight due to the weight of a cargo truck passing by.

A motorcyclist was killed after crashing into the vehicle, which could not be seen because of the darkness, as it lay in the shallow water.

Another old bridge, also in Minhang and in the same Pujiang Town, collapsed in October.

"Many bridges were built 30 or 40 years ago by farmers using concrete and rocks, and were not designed to support the weight of modern, heavy cargo trucks," said an official from Pujiang Town.

The series of accidents have compelled the town to conduct thorough inspections and repairs on its 100-plus small, aging bridges.

Bridges over Suzhou Creek in Zhabei District will also be renovated, but this will mainly be for aesthetic reason. The aim is to create a better and more harmonious look that complements nearby architecture and allows better access, said the district government.

Affordable homes program expanded for 2011
By Cao Qian | 2010-12-23 |
Shanghai Daily

SHANGHAI plans to build more affordable homes next year, as the city increases efforts to improve the living standard of middle to low income households.

The city will see affordable housing totaling 15 million square meters built in 2011 - an increase of 25 percent on 2010, Liu Haisheng, director of the Shanghai Housing Support and Building Administration Bureau, told a municipal conference yesterday.

The city's affordable housing program mainly includes budget homes, houses built for relocated residents and public housing units for rental.

Homes for relocated residents will account for 8 million square meters; budget homes are allocated 5 million square meters; and public rent units 2 million square meters.

Shanghai began work on more than 12 million square meters of affordable housing this year.

The city has been striving hard to increase the supply of affordable housing as rapidly surging home prices have priced people on lower incomes out of the market.

New home price in Shanghai rose to 22,468 yuan (US$3,373) per square meter on average in November, extending growth for the 5th consecutive month, according to Shanghai Uwin Real Estate Information Services Co.

Big plans for public transport
Shanghai Daily
By Dong Zhen | 2010-12-24 |

SHANGHAI will build more taxi stands at busy public venues and support them with taxi allocation systems which will allocate taxis to areas where there is the most demand.

It is an initiative inspired by the Shanghai World Expo, said the city's top traffic-planning authority, which is also the local government's traffic development advisor.

During the early stages of the Expo, the traffic authorities limited access to taxis inside Expo sites.

But they then began to allot a certain number of taxis to specific areas depending on demand.

The taxi allocation systems proved successful and passengers were able to get cabs smoothly and in an orderly fashion.

"In the future, traffic authorities will have more taxi stands in busy areas, supported by real-time taxi -allocation systems," Zhu Hong, a chief engineer with the Shanghai City Comprehensive Transportation Planning Institute, said yesterday.

The city will also continue to focus on reining in the growth of automobiles on local streets and encourage more people to use public transportation, mainly the Metro and buses.

It aims to achieve this by further improving and expanding services, according to the institute.

More bike lanes and two-wheeler parking sites will be set up in the coming years to facilitate the city's low-carbon transportation drive.

Facilities for cyclists will encourage people to ride bikes in short commutes between their homes and Metro stations or bus stops.

Given the fact that Shanghai is expanding residential complexes to more suburban areas, bikes have become a favorite mode of transport for commuters traveling between their houses and transport hubs.

But many have been obstructed from riding because of the lack of safe cycling lanes and the absence of parking facilities, the traffic experts said.

"The city still features a large number of cyclists, despite the growth in car traffic. In the future, while continuing to make efforts to curb car traffic, we will also protect and revive 'slow traffic' space," said Zhu.

New reservoir for city facing pollution threat
21 December 2010
Shanghai Daily

POLLUTION threatens the new source of the city's water supply, experts are warning, just weeks after the Qingcaosha Reservoir began supplying homes in Shanghai.

Measures must be taken to protect the reservoir, the city's top advisory body said yesterday.

Water condition at the mouth of the Yangtze River, where the reservoir is located, is threatened by upstream factories, busy shipping traffic and salt tides, according to the Shanghai Committee of Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference.

Water from the reservoir is said to be cleaner than that from the Huangpu River, which provides most of Shanghai's tap water.

Some 750,000 Shanghai residents became the first people in the city to receive tap water from the reservoir on December 1.

The 70-square-kilometer reservoir near Changxing Island will provide water for 10 million residents by next June.

But rapid growth of heavy and chemical industries at mid and downstream areas along the Yangtze River, together with fast urbanization, put water safety at risk along the river, the committee said.

Oil leaks from ships and chemical cargoes are other potential dangers, it added.

"Further urbanization is inevitable, which would increase the risk to water safety in the reservoir," said an expert on the committee, who asked not to be named.

However, the city's water authority said safety could be ensured as they had emergency plans in place.

"The authority could shut the reservoir immediately should pollution or salt water tides be identified upstream," water officials said.

Metro closes road for 2 years
Created: 2010-12-27 0:57:07
Author:Zha Minjie

A KEY downtown road will be closed for two years while a Metro station and a transport hub are built, local construction and traffic authorities said yesterday.

A section of Huashan Road, between Tai'an Road and Kangping Road in downtown Xuhui District, will be off-limits to most vehicles from Thursday until December 31, 2012, traffic police said.

Cars and buses will be prohibited, with only pedestrians, cyclists and mopeds allowed to pass along the stretch of road, officers said.

The project will see the construction of Metro Line 11's Jiao Tong University Station and its transit hub to Line 10.

Line 11, which presently runs from suburban Jiading District to downtown Jiangsu Road, will extend to the Pudong New Area by 2012.

The city Metro builder said work on 22 subway stations has resumed in downtown areas, following the end of the World Expo on October 31. During the six-month event, most downtown construction sites were closed.

Jiang Shujie, deputy director of the city's construction and transport commission, apologized for "the inconvenience the construction work would bring" and called for residents' understanding.

The road closure will also affect nearby streets, with traffic police estimating that at least 12 roads and Xujiahui business hub face congestion.

It is estimated that about 800 vehicles on detours will pass along nearby roads every hour at peak times, putting roads under heavy pressure.

The city transport management bureau said 13 bus lines - 11 day bus lines and two night bus lines - will use detours. On average, each bus line is expected to make a detour of about 1.5 kilometers.

Bus routes along Huashan Road will resume in August 2012, transport officials said.

Other vehicles will have to wait until the end of 2012.

Historic buildings brought to city for new zone
Created: 2010-12-29
Author: Yang Jian

CENTURIES-OLD houses from neighboring Anhui and Jiangxi provinces are being brought to the city as the centerpiece of a new commercial zone, an engineer said yesterday. More than 80 Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) two-story wooden structures, between 100 and 200 years old, are being dismantled at their original sites and reassembled in Shanghai.
The houses, which are examples of Qing and Ming architectural styles, will form part of a new commercial zone in the Pudong New Area, said Wang Wei, a professor and head of the project. "The central area of the zone where the old buildings are located will make people feel like they are arriving at some quiet riverside town of China's Jiangnan area," he said. The Jiangnan area refers to the lands to the south of the lower reaches of the Yangtze River, including the southern part of the Yangtze Delta.
The houses will be turned into luxury apartment hotels, exhibition halls and stores in a 360,000-square-meter new commercial zone, called "Beauty Shanghai," along the Huangpu River. High-rise hotels and conference halls will be built around the old buildings in the 1.8-kilometer-long zone along the river. Developers hope it will become a new city landmark, focusing on commerce, fashion, exhibitions and accommodation. More than 60 houses have already been reassembled. The project is scheduled to be complete by June. Architects and experts marked every component before dismantling work and photographed every detail. The houses were transported to Shanghai by trucks and trains. Wang said the old buildings would be better protected in Shanghai. Most had been used as stores for firewood or just left empty. He predicted the buildings could stand for another 100 years in the city as invisible concrete pillars were supporting the wooden structures. Experts began looking for houses with the most typical historic architectural styles in the neighboring two provinces in 2009.

This sounds like a very interesting project, but I'm not sure the idea of taken those houses away from their original place. They don't belong to Shanghai and the city's history, so it will probably look like some kind of disney land again. Hope I'm wrong.
