The bridge, filling a gap between the Puji and Hengfeng road bridges, will result in greater convenience and shorter transport distances for local residents. The bridge will be 853 meters long, linking Changping and Hengtong roads. It will be open to pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles. Community carnival Shanghai entered the hottest period of sum- mertime this month, with temperatures soaring up to 39 degrees Celsius. But scorching heat isn鈥檛 deterring local residents from participating in community activities. The Jing鈥檃nsi community鈥檚 summer sports carnival drew big crowds. Children, parents and even some senior citizens competed in traditional games like rope skipping, hula hoop- ing and darts throwing. The games, held in the Jing鈥檃n Park, also attracted foreigners, tourists and white-collar office workers. Latest fashions Shanghai has always been known as a town of fashion, and now it鈥檚 even easier to parade the latest styles. Nearly 20 luxury labels, including LV, Dior, Gucci, YSL, Prada and Salvatore Ferragamo, have been granted priority ranking that lessens the chances that new shipments of merchan- dise will be held up for Customs inspections. That means goods on the shelves change more frequently. Of the 20 firms, 85 percent have outlets in the Jing鈥檃n District.
