Traffic Challenge in Beijing

The World Resources Institute (WRI) recently published a forecast of five trends to be expected in China’s Urban Transport in 2013. The rapid change in Chinese cities’ infrastructure is likely to continue. The country’s economy will keep urban development and public transport infrastructure such as metro and bus rapid transit (BRT) growing. Nevertheless more and more Chinese buy a car. The challenges like congestion, air pollution and noise emission of traffic from automobiles, already affecting large cities like Beijing, will  face up to more second-tier cities.

According to WRI, the following five trends are awaited:

  • Urban Rail Expansion
  • Battling with Air Pollution
  • Private Car Ban
  • Biking Renaissance
  • Multi-Modal Integration

We provide news, opinions and reports on policy and technology developments in the transport and mobility sector in China and around the world.
