WANGJIALI ELEVATED ROAD TO OPEN NEXT MONTH
- - - -
The Wanjiali elevated road section will be opened to traffic on October 1. However, due to the ongoing constructed of Metro Line 5, ground and underground pipelines will still be under repairs. The ground level of the road is expected to resume in February 2018 (slight delay to the timeline).
The ground level will have Changsha's first 'BRT' bus rapid transit line, a dedicated bus line free from most traffic and junction congestion. The bus line will go on for around 20.1 kilometers. A further construction of 220,000-volt power tunnels will also be concluded in the near future. There will be 18 entrances/exit lanes onto the Elevated Road along the route.
The Elevated main road features a two-way 6 lane highway with speeds up to 80 km.
