The 60-Mile Traffic Jam

A major route in China has been slammed with a major traffic jam, spanning more than 60 miles and lasting for more than a week.

The road is heading toward Beijing, and is mostly congested with trucks.

"The stalled traffic stretches between Jining in Inner Mongolia and Huai'an in Hebei province, north-west of Beijing, said the Global Times.

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