Shanghai closes major bridges as Typhoon Muifa sweeps past

SHANGHAI today closed a second major sea bridge linking the urban area to an outlying island amid gusts packed by Typhoon Muifa which swept across the region. The closure of the 16.63-km-long Yangtze Bridge to traffic followed a similar action that sealed the 32.5-km-long East Sea Bridge yesterday afternoon, local traffic authorities said. The authorities also imposed speed limits on highways and launched a thorough safety inspection of transportation infrastructure. According to the National Meteorological Center, Typhoon Muifa, moving northward off the east China coast, is expected to land in Shandong Province to the north of Shanghai tomorrow morning.
