Transport in China

China National Highway 110 (G110) runs from Beijing to Yinchuan, via Hohhot and Baotou, in Inner Mongolia. It heads northwest from Beijing to Zhangjiakou then heads straight west, and runs to approximately 1,100 kilometres.

In October 2004 and November 2004, it was overwhelmed with traffic diverted from the Jingzhang Expressway, occurring as a result of a massive traffic jam on the expressway. In a related incident in August 2010, a 60-mile traffic jam occurred on this route (See 2010 China National Highway 110 traffic jam).[1]

Traffic jams[edit]

Slow moving traffic and recurrent traffic jams on Highway 110 between Beijing and Inner Mongolia result from an overload of coal trucks transporting coal from newly opened mines in Inner Mongolia to sea ports on the coast of China. Rail lines are under construction which would relieve the bottleneck but will not be completed until 2012 at the earliest.[2]
