China unveils elevated bus that drives over the TOP of other cars
Getting stuck in a traffic jam can be one of the most frustrating parts of travelling around a busy city.
Now engineers in China, the world’s most populated country, have come up with a way to overcome the problem of getting around in traffic.
Designs for a new elevated bus has been unveiled at a tech expo in China, which will apparently be able to carry 1,200 passengers over the top of cars and let traffic to pass underneath it.

It would also be a huge help to traffic congestion if lorries and coaches had their own motorway network.It would most likely be unworkable in the UK,but is a nice thought,anyway.

I have seen this concept years ago, why is this being run again ?

This new design was driven by cost saving and innovation, not by over population. Brazil might be world’s least populated country, but Sao Paulo and Rio are still the most congested cities in the world. By the way, China is not the most populous country in the world. If Pakistan and Bangladesh did not separate from India, then India would by far have world’s largest population. If all European countries unite to be one country then its population would rival that of China’s. China’s population density is about same as Western Europe, way less than Japan and Korea

Fortunately, it’s only a scale model.

Most of the appliances in your home are either made in China or electronics and other parts produced in China. Most of them seem to work OK

It runs on tracks, therefore it is a TRAM, not an omnibus!

Why not just build an elevated train? No chance of it hitting cars, and it won’t interfere with traffic.

@cato .. and what holds the tracks up … they get in the way . + this is way cheaper

But what about when it need to go round a corner ? It would have to cut across lanes

That’s very cool but that’s the only time in my life too I’ve ever seen orderly traffic in China. What if some old Santana taxi stops on the tracks when that thing comes flying along? Eech. Wonder could you fit a Tony The Tiger wash to the underside and give every car a free scrub and brush-up as it passes underneath
