The curved road ramp on the Yan’an Highway by the Bund is getting torn down in an operation that will take 120 days. It is a part of a larger makeover programme that will also see the Waibaidu Bridge dismantled, repaired and reassembled beam by beam. Such a pity! We used to LOVE the view whenever we go down there in a taxi. Now we may never get that view again. Coming in its place, according to the Shanghai Daily:
Eventually, the elevated ramp will be replaced by a lower ramp linking the elevated road to the tunnel.
The new tunnel, running for 3.3 kilometers, will become an underground artery between Hongkou and Huangpu districts.
