Aerial view of masses of cars travelling back to Beijing in a traffic jam on the Beijing-Hong Kong-Macao Expressway during the week-long National Day holiday in north China's Hebei province, 6 October 2015. Next time you are stuck in a traffic jam, spare a thought for the people of Beijing. This was the horrific sight faced by many Chinese motorists as millions of people took to the roads during the week-long national holiday that China recently celebrated. An incredible 50 lanes of motorway were gridlocked after a new checkpoint was installed outside the capital, causing a nightmare-inducing bottle neck in traffic. People returning home after the national holiday were forced to wait for hours as more and more cars joined the queue, stretching out as far as the eye could see.
