Underneath the Donghaoyong Elevated Road in Guangzhou

Over the years I have posted photos of scenes underneath bridges in cities such as Hengyang, Shenyang, Taiyuan, and Zhanjiang. Today I will share two photos taken yesterday underneath the double-decker Donghaoyong Elevated Road where it crosses over Donghua West Road in Guangzhou. The first photo looks roughly to the north and the second roughly to the south.

I took the photos in part because of the mix of concrete, lush greenery, and water in the two scenes. And in this part of the city, the elevated road takes a twisting path as it follows a watercourse. Due to the water, I was also standing on a bridge at the time.

Some may feel the highway ruins things, but perhaps more would have been ruined had it taken a direct route instead. At least putting the road up high keeps things more peaceful and green down below where one can take a pleasant walk past large leaves and columns.
