China Traffic Jam Stretches ‘Nine Days, 100km’
A massive traffic jam in China has slowed vehicles to a crawl for nine days near Beijing, local media say.
Vehicles, mostly lorries bound for Beijing, are in a queue for about 100km (62 miles) because of heavy traffic, road works and breakdowns.
The drivers have complained that locals were over-charging them for food and drink while they were stuck.
The situation has now “basically returned to normal,” state television said on Monday.
There has been a boom in road building in China in recent years but vehicle use has soared at the same time.
