here are spme empty road for you
also i just found this funny looking road
Why would it be called "waste of money"? Are you talking about the lack of traffic? You know, this is how inter-city highways all over the world look, generally, in terms of traffic? I don't know about Chinese highways since I have never gone by road from city-to-city in China, I have only gone by flight - but really, if you have to travel around 350+ km from city A to B on a highway, you need to be able to maintain an average speed of at least 80 km/hr - on the contrary, it will be a waste if the traffic is too much to be able to maintain that speed.
Basic commonsense about road travel.
The biggest difference between Chinese and Indian roads. Indian roads are wall to wall packed with traffic, Chinese roads outside of tier 1 cities largely remain sparsely trafficked. I couldn't believe how easy it was getting around a city of 11 million by car, just avoid the commuter hot spots. Accidents were the biggest problem.
well i havent been to those other tier city you talking aboutï¼Œand i didnt even know if my city is some kind tire 1 cityï¼Œbut the traffic jam does get pretty bad more and more oftenï¼Œgoverment tried many ways to reduce thatï¼Œbut so far none work as we wishedï¼Œso consider youself lucky you were not in one of those cityã€‚ï¼ˆok i just checkedï¼Œlooks like my city isnt tire 1 after allï¼Œmaybe tire 2ï¼Ÿï¼‰:thumb:
picture of traffic jam in my cityï¼Œits called chengduï¼Œand trust meï¼Œyou dont want to know how it looks like during after work hour
If you take the expressway you will hardly see any traffic. This is a typical image of what I saw on it in Guangzhou...

such is what is happening now on CHinese expressway.....
why bother with the brainwashedï¼ŸThese people have no idea about the number and magnitude of projects China is undertakingã€‚Their pea-sized brain can't deal with the enormity of the transformation under way in their northern neighbourã€‚
Major Highway of Shanghai...
OMGï¼Œyou are still tryingï¼Ÿthose picture looks empty because they choose the time which there isnt many cars to show the best looking of the roadï¼Œthose are clearly offical pictureï¼Œwhile picture i give you are not from officalï¼Œalso those pictures above your postï¼Œyou do know its a fact that the amount of cars are increasing very fast in china do youï¼Ÿjust a few years back not much people are worrying about the trafficï¼Œand there isnt so many cars parked in the community i liveï¼Œnow its cars in every cornerï¼Œoften the car owner even need to call the other driver to move his car so the he can drive his own car outï¼Œim just fail to understand why more and more chinese from differnt city are worrying and talking about traffic jamï¼Œbut some chini expert here try to say the traffic is emptyï¼Œoh btwï¼Œthose expressway just got some major jam going right nowï¼Œlook at the post above youã€‚

Also i have to say its even more funny for you to tell your â€œchinese roads are emptyâ€theroy at todayï¼Œbecause this time of the year its always the extremely busy time of chinese roadsï¼Œespecially those expresswayï¼Œalways a lot terrible traffic jamï¼Œbecause its the national celebriting dayï¼Œwellï¼Œthose post of yours pretty much showed how much you actully know about chinaï¼Œi guess its true if some guy come out of nowhere and start call himself am expertï¼Œthen you know you cant trust himã€‚
and about Guangzhou traffic you saidï¼Œjust try use google search â€œGuangzhou TRAFFIC JAMâ€ï¼Œi havent been to that cityï¼Œbut i see even some foreign media have reported the traffic jam problemã€‚
chini expertï¼šâ€œyeah this looks pretty emptyâ€
If China's expressways are seeing so much traffic, why are they 2.3 trillion RMB in debt?
Have you really read the article? Chinaâ€™s toll roads recorded combined revenues of RMB 285.946 billion last year, you know what does it mean? you know the relations between revenues and long-term investment? yeah, to you, a knowledgeable ecnomist who pastes a lot of China economy related posts, that investment must be debt and forever a debt, salute to you, what can I say? what should I say?
And our expert come to show his ignorance once moreï¼Œi guess i want to stick around this fun post a bit longerã€‚
I cant believe people in this forum got fooled by this "expert" so easily and likes him 1082 times,really?i just been to this forum about a day,and i can easily tell he never been to china and know very little about china,he dont even know when is the national celebriting day in china for christ sake,i guess i spent enough time on this forum,so farewell,gentlmen.
People only believe what they want to believe. if Chinese roads being empty is what people want to believe, then so be it, why do you even bother?
Of all the pictures you posted, this one is my favorite.
Do you know what so much investment and debt really means? It means most of China's roads are undertraveled and in many cases, practically deserted. Like all other things China does, it has vast overcapacity of highways that it cannot turn a profit. When you build so much you are going to have most of it empty.

Alright you got meï¼Œi dont know what to say anymoreï¼Œwatching a foreigner screaming chinese road is empty during the extremely stressful days of chinese expresswayï¼Œi just feel lucky this year i dont need to drive to my home cityã€‚ã€‚ã€‚ã€‚first you say only tier 1 city dont have empty roadsï¼Œthen i tell you traffic jam is getting more and more out of control in my city which is not a tier 1 cityï¼Œfar from tier 1 actullyï¼Œcare to explain why the reality is always quite the opposite to what you claimedï¼Ÿï¼ˆalso my homecity might be a tire 3 cityï¼Œits a bit underdevelopedï¼Œbut i dont feel the roads are empty tooï¼Œjust like other cityï¼Œalways see cars running aroundï¼‰
