(Martin Li) Tips for travel on free highways TRANSPORTATION experts are advising vacationers planning holiday road trips to leave their homes in off-peak hours during the National Day holiday to avoid traffic congestion on highways. Tolls on highways across China will be free of charge during the holiday under a new national policy. Tolls on highways in Guangdong Province will be free from midnight Sept. 30 to midnight Oct. 8. The provincial transportation authority expects the number of vehicles on highways in the province to increase by 30 to 50 percent during the eight-day holiday.

Travel peaks are expected on the first day of the holiday and the final two. "There are eight days in this year's National Day holiday, so drivers don't have to choose those three days for travel," a transportation expert said. Savvy locals might seek alternate driving routes, the expert speculated. "Because the highways will be free, many drivers will rush to the highways to save time, so there will be fewer vehicles on other roads," the expert said. Drivers also are encouraged to keep up with real-time road information online, on the radio and via mobile phones when traveling during the holidays. The provincial transportation authority said more than 7.2 million vehicles are qualified to enjoy the toll-free highways in the province.
