Beijing-Tibet highway jam ends after 10 days

After reportedly 10 days, the build-up dubbed "China’s monster traffic jam" is finally over, as reported by MSNBC.

The
congestion, located about 200 km northwest for Beijing on
the…er…"Expressway," covered more than 100 km. The highway is highly
susceptible to gridlock even during the best circumstances, and the
traffic jam even spawned its own economy with street vendors selling
water and food at a high markup.

MSNBC said a large
contributor to the problem is the transport of coal. With coal in heavy
demand and a lack of rail lines, it is ferried out from Inner Mongolia
using the expressway.
