A bus is traveling on the new Yingdian Road on Monday.

A former dead-end road in suburban Shanghai has finished its revamp and opened to traffic on Monday, connecting Qingpu District with neighboring Kunshan in Jiangsu Province.

Before the revamp project, Xinle Road in Kunshan and Yingdian Road were separated by a river, only connected by a 5-meter-wide bridge, which was too narrow to allow cars to pass.

The new Yingdian Road is an undivided highway with two traffic lanes for each direction, with a speed limit of 60 kilometers per hour. 

Two bus routes, C3 and C5, shuttling between Shanghai and Kunshan, opened simultaneously with the new road. Both bus routes depart from Caoying Road bus hub at Caoying Road Station of Metro Line 17. C3’s destination is Qingfeng Road in Kunshan and C5’s is Dianshan Lake Bus Station.

According to the city’s traffic authority, another nine dead-end roads at provincial borders are also under renovation.
