A giant bus capable of carrying 1,200 people and gliding on a track over the top of cars has been slated for testing in China next year as the world’s most populous country attempts to tackle traffic trouble.

A full sized model of the tunnel-like vehicle, which is expected to be wider than two lanes of traffic, is planned for August with testing scheduled to start in the second half of 2017.

Mock-ups of the vehicle, known in Chinese as the “bus-way”, went on display in Beijing this month. A similar project was proposed in 2010 but was never completed.
