Places Vulnerable to Traffic Jam in Guangzhou
Dongxiao Road 东晓路 (the switch position of Inner Ring Road and Dongxiao Road from south to north)
Vehicles which go straight or turn around share two traffic lanes, further more, vehicles from Changgang Road and Xingang Road drive in the same lane making this section become a traffic black spot.
Tianhe Bei Road 天河北路
Too many traffic lights create traffic jams here.
Shixi 石溪 (from north to south of Gongye Dadao avenue, near Shixi station)
Still too many traffic lights.
Due to the improper design, the traffic lanes form a bottle neck changing from 4 lanes to 3 lanes then to 2 lanes. This makes it impossible for vehicles to go through the road smoothly.
Daxin Road Exit of the viaduct upon Renmin Zhong Road 工业大道往人民中路高架桥南往北大新路出口
When vehicles turn the corner at Nanfang Building, the vehicles then converge together into one lane from three traffic lanes causing yet another traffic jam.
Inner Ring Road, Zhujiang Tunnel from south to north 内环路珠江隧道南往北
Heavy traffic is the key problem.
Gangding 岗顶 (from Grandview Plaza to Ji'nan University)
Heavy traffic and many traffic lights. Additionally, improper locations of bus-stops create more traffic.
Huangpu Dadao Tunnel 黄埔大道隧道
Six lanes changed into five creating a "bottle neck" road
Donghaochong viaduct to Jiangwan Bridge 东濠涌高架桥段往江湾大桥方向
Vehicles from 3 lanes drive into one entrance of the viaduct creating a permanant traffic jam.
