Beijing’s first scramble crossing was put to use in the city’s western Shijingshan District.
A scramble crossing is a pedestrian intersection where the traffic lights stop all the cars at the same time so pedestrians can walk in any direction across the street. This can be seen in the many photos shared online of the world’s most famous scramble crossing outside Shibuya Station in Tokyo.
According to Cao Shixing, a leader at the local traffic department, the crossing is working well on its first day of operation. Other scramble crossings will be considered in Beijing pending the results of the current trial.
The 2018 Boao Forum for Asia (BFA) annual conference is scheduled for April 8 to 11 in Boao, Hainan Province. The forum will be themed "An Open and Innovative Asia for a World of Greater Prosperity."
