This was sent out by the Benelux Chamber of Commerce in China to notify Beijing residents and visitors. It is amazing how huge streets can just be shut down for four days without much notice. Good that I ride bike and usually am not affected by road closures.
Temporarily closed Airport Expressway in Beijing
Starting tomorrow Beijing will host the Seventh Asia-Europe Summit from October 23 – October 26. The government will temporarily close the Airport Expressway and all the exits along it as follows:
October 23 – 8:30am – 11:00pm, Direction Airport to the City
October 24 – 8:00am – 1:30 pm, Direction Airport to the City
October 25 - 4:30pm – 11:00pm, Direction City to the Airport
October 26 - 8:30am – 8:00pm, Direction City to the Airport
This will put extra pressure on the more local roads like Jing Shun Road with the potential to create major traffic jams and hazards.
