Lupu Bridge Opens

The infrastructure of Shanghai is improving at amazing speed. After the new outer ring tunnel opened in Shanghai last weekend, the 6th bridge on Huangpu river opens today.

When I first came to Shanghai in 1995, the Yang Pu bridge was just completed. There are one tunnel and two bridges over the river. Now, from the north to south, six bridges are ready:

Meanwhile, five tunnels are ready (from the north are outer ring tunnel, Yanan Rd tunnel, Tourism tunnel, Metro Line #2 tunnel, Dapuqiao tunnel). Two more (Dalian Road Tunnel and Fuxing Road tunnel) are under construction. By the year 2005, 20 tunnels will connects the Pudong area and the Puxi area.
