The mother of all traffic jams.

Looking forward to the very probable motorway traffic jams on Friday, I read that British congestion is not so bad compared to China. For 10 days, drivers on the Beijing to Mongolia expressway have been stuck in a 60-mile tailback. Is this the world's longest queue? The Chinese authorities are struggling to clear the congestion, now entering its eleventh day and which, at its peak, stretched for more than 60 miles (100km). But the drivers still joining it are not optimistic about reaching their destinations swiftly. A combination of road works and the huge volume of coal trucks that daily rumble along this main route is said to have caused the problem.

That all makes Hereford appear to be a motorists dream, being able to cross the city in just 60 minutes!
