City to get congestion alert system

Shanghai's transport authority says it will introduce a new congestion alert system this year.

The authority has built a database, which measures the amount of congestion in Shanghai on a scale of zero to 100.

The public will be notified of the congestion situation once a score above 50 is recorded, at which time "appropriate" measures will be taken.

These will include such things as further restricting vehicles with non-local plates and putting more police officers on congested roads.
