Beijing's Transport Plans!

China has lined up ambitious plans to address Beijing's worsening traffic problems.

280,000 new parking spaces; 1,000 share-a-bike stations; 348 miles of new subway tracks; 125 miles of new downtown streets; 23 miles of tunnels; 9 new transportation hubs; 3 congestion zones; and 1 cure-all, "the use of modern technology".


The sheer scale of that is staggering. To put it in perspective, it is more that what is planned in all Indian cities put together!
