A traffic jam that lasted 9 days.

Thats ridiculous! And, they did it to themselves:

The road works which were obstructing traffic are necessary to repair damage caused by an increase in cargo lorries using the highway, the state-run newspaper said.


There are lots of lorries so lots of lorries on the road which makes the roads bad for the lorries (such a nice word) and because they are with so many all of the lorries get stuck on the lorrie-destroyed-highway.

The Chinese should be building railways rather than highways. No form of land transportation can match a double tracked rail line for capacity.

I can put my hands in my head, and I can laugh it in the face.
