ched for 10 km, making it a memorable scene for a generation.

In October 2016, the bridge was closed for repairs after being open for almost 50 years. The 100,000 vehicles it carried each day far

exceeded its designed capacity of 8,000, causing many cracks to appear in the structure. It has been repaired 12 times since 2002.

Other problems it faced included falling mortar and metal fatigue.

The government decided to spend more than 1.1 billion yuan ($164 million) on the repairs.

The structure’s original concrete deck was replaced by a steel one, which is lighter and h

as greater durability. The replacement work was carried out above the 27,000-volt railway line. Any falling mater

ial, even a screw, would have caused a power failure and disrupted services on the busy Beijing-Shanghai Rail

way. Workers had to erect scaffolding and protective nets when no trains were passing.

The diameter of the lamp bases on the bridge were reduced by 5 ce

ntimeters, making the sidewalk wider and more convenient for pedestrians.

“It’s obvious that their near-extinction was caused by huma

ormation, behaviors and genetics. The knowledge we have is too limited to save the species.”

Save your look of judgment for anyone blocking your path as you try to walk past them on an

escalator in Shanghai. The new safety notices posted in every metro station in the city tell you to stand still.

The notice also warns people against playing, leaning and faci

ng the wrong way, as well as carrying heavy goods or trolleys on escalators.

While standing on the right and walking on the left has been the norm, the city has changed t

his etiquette to “no walking” for the safety of commuters and the proper functioning of escalators.
