    China may have found an environmentally friendly way to save money while easing congestion on city roads, Engadget reports.

    Instead of spending millions to widen roads, the Shenzhen Huashi Future Parking Equipment company is developing a "3D Express Coach" (also called a "three-dimensional fast bus") that will allow cars less than 2 meters high to travel underneath the upper level carrying passengers.

    China Hush
    , which has nicknamed the project "Straddling Bus" has details:
    The model looks like a subway or light-rail train bestriding the road. It is 4-4.5 m high with two levels: passengers board on the upper level while other vehicles lower than 2 m can go through under. Powered by electricity and solar energy, the bus can speed up to 60 km/h carrying 1200-1400 passengers at a time without blocking other vehicles' way. Also it costs about 500 million yuan to build the bus and a 40-km-long path for it, only 10% of building equivalent subway. It is said that the bus can reduce traffic jams by 20-30%.
    According to Engadget, construction of the first 115 miles of track will begin in Beijing's Mentougou district at the end of 2010.

    Check out the photos of the 3D Express Coach, then tell us what you think.

    Passengers will board the buses at large above-ground loading stations.

    The front and rear of the buses will emit ultrasonic waves to keep trucks or too-tall cars from entering the "tunnel." If an oversize vehicle gets too close to the bus, sensors will trigger an alarm.

    The interior of the buses will resemble current public transit vehicles like city buses and subway cars. The passengers will enter the vehicles either through sliding side doors or through an internal staircase that leads to a sliding skylight.

    Song Youzhou proposed two different types of platforms for the buses: "One is to load/unload through the sides [of the vehicle]; the other is using the built-in ladder so that passengers can go up and to the overpass through the [vehicle's] ceiling door." [via China Hush]

    Mkuu kutamani ni kitu kimoja na kutekeleza kitu mpaka kifikie hali ya kutumika ni kitu kingine. Hamna mtu asiyependa kuishi maisha 'katalogi' bana. Suala ni uwezo tu ambao HATUNA. Tusijivungevunge kuukubali ukweli na kuumia roho bure!

    Kama watawala wameshindwa kutumia kilichopo wataweza vp kutumia kitu ambacho bado kipo kwene dhana tu? Kwetu sisi haya mabasi itabakia kuwa ni ndoto ya mchana ya mtu kusafiri kwa kutumia mfagio(sic).

    Muzee,

    Ninaposema uwezo simaanishi uwezo wa kimali. Tz ni nchi tajiri saaaana kimali. Tatizo lipo kwene mechanism ya ku-convert utajiri kwenda kwenye useful social well being. Hapo ndio umaskini wetu ulipo. Umaskini wa fikra duni na mfumo wa 'mimi kwanza'.

    Kila nchi kuna watu wenye akili, kinachoweka tofauti baina ya wenye akili kutoka kwene nchi tofauti ni nani yupo kilingeni. Kwa Uchina waliopo kilingeni ni watu wenye uoni, ila sisi kilingeni wameketi mazuzu, ndio maana mambo hayaendi.

    Mimi napinga sana kasumba ya kulaumu uongozi. Bongo hatuna wataalam wenye uoni wa hali hiyo. Kwa maneno mengine hata kama Baraza zima la Mawaziri wa china wangekuja Tz na kuichukua nchi kuwaongoza wabongo, hawawezi kutoa vitu vya maana. Kwa hiyo sisi tunaoongozwa ndo mazuzu... ndo maana mambo hayaendi. Wewe ungekuwa madarakani ungefanya nini??? Huu ni umasikini wa fikra na mali tulio nao Afrika.

    Hapo ndipo tabaka tawala mnapochemsha. Sidhani kama inakatazwa ku-outsource wataalam. Hata Marekani ina-outsource. Hivo bana hilo mnalo. Hakuna pa kukimbilia.

    Kwa huu uzembe na ufisadi wetu hii haiwezekani hapa kwetu. Pia inabidi tuwalambe viboko vikali "ganster drivers" wote bila kujali vyeo vyao ili tuondoe kabisa tabia za kihuni za wanaotanua na kuchmekea ili utaratibu kama huu uweze kufanikiwa hapa kwetu.

    Hili baraza la mawaziri la wachina lingekuja kwanza tungekuwa na kipindi cha misiba na maomboleza kwa sababu wangewalamba risasi watu wengi sana wanaoshiriki kwenye ufisadi. Baada ya hapo wataalam wetu wangeamka na kutumia utaalamu wao kufanya mambo ya kimaendeleo kama haya.
