Tickets to Shanghai Expo on sale next month

2008-08-13

SHANGHAI, Aug. 13 (Xinhua) -- Tickets to the 2010 Shanghai World Expo will be on sale from Sept. 28 at the price of 160 yuan (about 23.5 U.S. dollars) for a set, the local government said on Wednesday.

"Before we decided on the price of the tickets we take into consideration the financial affordability of people from all walks of life," said Hong Hao, director of the expo coordination bureau, at the conference.

Discounts are available for senior citizens, students, children and servicemen. Tickets to night shows will also be discounted.

Hong said the expo would cost 18 billion yuan to build and another 10.6 billion yuan to operate.

"According to the practice of World Expo and the requirement of Bureau of International Expositions, the expo should be non-profit. So we hope the tickets sales and market development can cover the operation cost," Hong said.

So far, 214 countries and international organizations had confirmed their participation for the event and 60 had signed contacts.

An estimated 70 million visitors are expected to attend the expo with the theme of "Better city, better life."

The 184-day expo, running from May 1 to Oct. 31, 2010, will feature five theme pavilions -- "Urbanian," "City as a Form of Life," "Urban Planet," "Urban Future" and "Urban Culture."

Expo tunnel breakthrough


The main structure of a tunnel linking the Puxi and Pudong zones of the 2010 World Expo is completed, as a massive shield finishes digging a second passage across the Huangpu River yesterday. Officials of the Shanghai No. 2 Engineering Co, which is building the Xizang Road S. Tunnel, plan to open the link before the end of June to construction vehicles working on World Expo projects. The tunnel, which will have two lanes in each passage, runs 2.67 kilometers and is designed to transport 60,000-70,000 vehicles an hour during the Expo.

Should there be any connection to the two portions of the Expo site on either side of the Yangtze River?
