A 500-space underground parking lot will be built under the People's Stadium to address the needs of citizens working and living nearby.
The parking lot, as part of the renovation of the People's Stadium, one of many venues across the city which will host events of the Asian Youth Games, is progressing smoothly with construction of the main body of the stadium partly completed.
An underground pedestrian tunnel connecting the parking lot with the office buildings opposite Xinxing Road will also be built.
To facilitate the construction of the underground pedestrian tunnel, Xinxing Road (from the south gate of Tuodao Opera Theater to Haibin Road) will be closed from May 14 to Jan. 31 of next year.
