Shanghaiist has not witnessed, first-hand at least, many cities where traffic has gotten better. Usually we find ourselves in a city during the phase where traffic ineluctably changes from tolerable to shitty. But at least we know that here in Shanghai, there are city officials awake at night thinking about how to deal with this situation. Sometimes they think up modest measures, such as getting rid of the double-decker buses on the 911 line (we’re sad about this one, lot of good memories on that bus) that take up so much room and disrupt traffic. More radical measures include creating those little bus stop islets so that buses don’t block traffic when they stop. According to this report (in Chinese), this will have the effect of increasing traffic capacity by over 30 percent. That report also lists the 30 bottleneck spots that the city government are going to try to tackle, along with the proposed changes. Scroll down to the bottom to see if an intersection near you is going to be affected. Some will have left-turn lanes added, some will just add more lanes, others will have pedestrian lanes added.
