Recently, it was reported that a parent of a Middle School in Shangqiu, Henan, built an overpass at her own expense.
According to the content of an online video, the overpass is currently under construction and will be put into use soon. It is understood that the avenue in front of Xiayi County Experimental Middle School has a very large traffic volume on weekdays, and serious congestion during school hours, making it very inconvenient for students to get in and out of school.
Ms. Meng, who donated to build this flyover, said in an interview that her sole intention is “to help the children.” In addition to the problem of congestion, the terrain of the Avenue is very low. Every summer in the rainy season, students have to groped across the road with muddy water, and sometimes the stagnant water will flood the roadside steps.
Ms. Meng stated that she had proposed to the school principal to build a flyover, but due to insufficient funds, with the support of the principal, Ms. Meng opted to build the flyover by herself.
