After completion of the underground road, the portion above the ground and Shiji Road will form a flat “T” junction.Two side roads will be built on both sides, forming a flat“+” junction with the portion above ground. Two (south and north) slip roads will be built to the east side of Shiji Road, connected with the underground portion. A side road above the ground will be built outside the east approach of the road-rail interchange. A new side road connected with the bridge will be built at 30th meter east to the road-rail interchange, the side road to be connected with the above-ground portion and, with the Station Road, form a flat “+” junction. To ensure connectivity of the pedestrains’ path,non-motor vehicles and the underground portion, two new slow side roads will be built, passing over slip roads A and B while a new slow system bridge is to be constructed.
