The fact that it is not possible to cross the Huangpu River in Shanghai (China) as a pedestrian inspired Friedman to initiate the project of seven -Bridge-Towns over the river, firmly linking the historic centre of Shanghai with the high rise district of Pudong.
Friedman suggested that these pedestrian bridges should be provided with moving walkways.
