Road construction

道路建设

Road construction is necessary to maintain and repair underground utilities, enhance the safety and flow of traffic, and to eliminate damaging potholes. While the results of road construction are increased safety and an improved image of a community, it can also have a negative effect on the community, especially in downtown areas.

修路有利于保护路基,保证交通通畅,消除道路坑洼。道路建设带来了交通的安全和社区的和谐,不过,也有一些不好的影响,特别是在市中心。

Nevertheless, there are a large number of strategies that, local government and organizations concerned can do to deal with the effects of road construction.

不过地方政府和相关部门能对道路建设的效果起很大的影响作用。

Careful planning and implementation is always required to deal with the after-effects of road construction to help restore a community’s vitality and perhaps help it expand beyond previous levels. A good dose of creativity and perseverance are also useful elements.

要促进社区发展,保持其活力,道路建设必须要细致的规划和执行,来保证长远的效益。创新精神和决心也是很重要的。

The disruption from road construction can be lessened if there is coordination between all the parties. Sometimes the construction work can be phased so that the entire district isn’t disrupted at the same time. It might be possible to limit the number of blocks under construction at one time.

做好各方面的协调工作能使道路建设工程顺利进行,有时候为了整个地区的顺畅,则不得不服从于全局,对于一些建设中的街区还有可能限制行驶。

Communication is important to exchange information about work schedules, duration, rerouting of traffic, etc., address issues as they arise, and avoid major conflicts.

有关工程的信息要及时发布并交流,工期、工程进度、交通的安排、地址的变更、防止发生不必要的冲突等等。

Since early 1990s, life and travel in the centre of Shanghai had been disrupted in various locations and at various times by construction, one after the other, of the Ring Roads, Elevated Highways and Metro Lines as well as other road widening work and infrastructure projects. However, temporary trouble can be rewarding. Although it looked like a complete disaster then, the roadwork did have the promise of becoming a welcome salvation in the years to come. When we saw these works in the city center completed, all residents felt benefits like an easing of air and noise pollution, reduced traffic chaos caused by their construction and smoother traffic flow.

90年代初开始,在上海市区的出行就因为各种各样的道路建设工程而变得十分不便环线建设、高架、地铁、道路拓宽以及其他基础工程。一些暂时的问题都是必须要面对的,也是值得的,从长期看来,这些道路工程是会受到市民欢迎的。当这些工程完工的时候,大家会看到一个更通畅的交通状况,堵车减少了,空气和噪音污染也会大大减少。
