Now This Is a Jam!

To all those people who complain about traffic jams, read this and weep! In China, there is a traffic jam along the Beijing-Tibet expressway that is more than 100-kilometre long.

You read that right. State-run newspapers in China report that drivers could be struck in the traffic jam leading to Beijing for 9 days before reaching Beijing and get out of the jam. 9 days! Now I heard of growing road congestion in China due to a growing car population but a 9 day traffic jam?

That is just bad road planning. No, that is just horrible road planning. No, that’s just…I give up. What do you call a 9 day traffic jam?

I can't help but comment...

I will like to re-interate that Singapore is Singapore...China is China...

Comparing a durian vis-a-vis a apple is definitely slanted in the eye of the beholder.

So it is kind of subjective.


Good day.

Come on, be serious! This is a 9 day traffic jam. There are probaly more cars in America, Europe etc and nowhere is there a 9 day traffic jam. China is China but this is nothing but poor/terrible road planning.
