how do i redirect to the cshtml page created inside shared folder – mvc3

You cannot redirect to anything that’s stored inside the ~/Views folder including the ~/Views/Shared. This folder is simply not served by ASP.NET MVC and cannot be accessed directly. Also notice that in ASP.NET MVC you are not serving .cshtml pages directly. You are always passing through controller action that return views and those views might represent .cshtml pages.

Now if you have some Shared folder directly under the site root ~/Shared, then you can do this:

<a href="@Url.Content("~/Shared/UnderConstruction")">construction</a>
