Nanjing Road Pedestrian Mall to be extended
Nanjing Road Pedestrian Mall will be extended to Sichuan Road M. by May next year, Shanghai traffic police said over the weekend.
The current Pedestrian Mall, which stretches between Xizang Road M. and Henan Road M., will be extended towards the Bund for about 300 meters.
Work primarily consists of changing the road surface. Work will start on December 6. From then until the work is finished, Nanjing Road E. will be closed to traffic between Henan Road M. and Zhongshan Road E1.
Pedestrians will still be able to walk from Henan Road M. to the Bund, and non-motor vehicles can use Jiangxi Road M. and Sichuan Road M.
After the mall is extended, Nanjing Road E. between Henan Road M. and Sichuan Road M. will be closed to all motor vehicles.
Nanjing Road Pedestrian Mall was opened in 1999 and has been a shopping landmark in Shanghai ever since.
