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

TomTom released the first edition of its China Traffic Index, which shows 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 urbanization 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.

—Ralf-Peter Schäfer, Head of Traffic at TomTom

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

  1. Tianjin
  2. Hangzhou
  3. Beijing
  4. Changchun
  5. Nanjing
  6. Shijiazhuang
  7. Shanghai
  8. Changsha
  9. Chongquing
  10. Fuzhou
