Early preparation work for the construction of Taicang-Liuhe Expressway, the city's first three-layer overpass urban expressway, is basically completed.
At present, construction of cast-in-place piles has been finished. About 80 percent of bearing platforms and pier studs have been built.
As a main part of the Shanghai-Nantong Railway Taicang section, Taicang-Liuhe Expressway totaling 5.72 kilometers will serve to connect downtown Taicang and Liuhe Town.
With a designed top speed of 80 kilometers per hour, the expressway will shorten the travel time from Taicang to Liuhe by about 10 minutes.
The construction is estimated to be completed by the end of 2019.
