TomTom research reveals drivers in China lose nine working days per year due to traffic

07/01/2014

TomTom (TOM2), a global leader in traffic, today released the first edition of its China Traffic Index, revealing that drivers are spending an average of nine working days a year stuck in traffic.

China has the world’s fastest growing economy and according to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation, as many as 300 million people will move from rural to urban areas by 2030.

“Rapid urbanisation has led to increased car sales across the country. Despite measures to reduce traffic congestion, such as limiting vehicle registration and building new roads, traffic continues to be a significant issue”, said Ralf-Peter Schäfer, Head of Traffic at TomTom. “By empowering drivers with accurate traffic information, so they know exactly which roads are congested and the length of the delay, they can get where they want to be faster.”

The top ten most congested cities in China, ranked by overall congestion level are:

1   Tianjin
2 Hangzhou
3 Beijing
4 Changchun
5 Nanjing
