The roadway traffic flow increased by a great deal due to the fine weather, the tomb-sweeping activity, and outdoor tourism in spring. According to expressway monitoring data from Jiangsu Traffic Law Enforcement Administration, from April 5 to 7, the expressway outflux is expected to reach 10.19 million vehicles across the province, up by 18.24% year on year.

The traffic flow totaled 1.16 million vehicles on three cross-Yangtze River bridges of Nanjing Yangtze River Highway Bridge II, Jiangyin Yangtze River Highway Bridge, and Su Tong Yangtze River Highway Bridge, up by 15% year on year.
