According to Shanghai’s construction and transport commission:
- By the end of 2015, the city’s Metro network and improved road access will ensure a commute inside downtown areas will take 45 minutes or less.
- Traveling from the suburbs to downtown Shanghai will take no more than 60 minutes, officials said.
- By then, more provincial highways and railways will mean most cities in the Yangtze River Delta will be accessible within 90 minutes.
- Another 200 kilometers of highways along with 200 kilometers of Metros and suburban railway lines will be built in the period.
