A Plan to Relieve Street Congestion In China

From Engadget: "...huge friggin' buses engulfing smaller cars on the road." This is one method China is considering reduce street congestion. The idea is to utilize the space between regular vehicles and bridges, saving construction costs of building lifted monorails. This allows cars to drive underneath these mega buses releasing overall congestion.

The first 186km of track will be built in Beijing's Mentougou district by years-end.
