Shanghai's Hongqiao Hub experienced a significant increase in traffic during the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day holiday, with an average of 1,417,700 passengers per day.
The railway station at the hub saw an average of 16,600 departures daily, with the highest number recorded on October 5 at 25,100 departures, setting a new record.
To handle the heavy traffic, parking lots P9 and P10 at Hongqiao Hub were expanded before the festival. New entrances and exits at P9 and P10 were also added to better direct vehicles into the new parking areas of the garage.
On the day of the Mid-Autumn Festival, an additional 1,000 parking spaces were opened to the public, which helped alleviate traffic congestion and parking difficulties around Hongqiao Hub. During the combined festival, the average daily number of vehicles entering the parking garage reached 24,000.
Throughout the holiday break, Hongqiao Hub utilized big data intelligent services to enhance its traffic diversion capacity. The intelligent identification video monitoring platform shared real-time data with the airport, railway, and bus traffic platforms, enabling comprehensive analysis and evaluation of passenger flow in key areas of the hub to promptly identify and handle any emergencies.
