THE peak for vehicles leaving the city for the Spring Festival holidays is expected to arrive tomorrow.
The city's roads will see congestion from around 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow, and congestion is expected to continue from Saturday to Feb. 14 at the Humen Bridge section on Guanfo Expressway, the Shiba-Reshui section of Huihe Expressway, and the Baiyunzai and Houmen sections of Shenshan Expressway, according to an announcement by the city's transport commission.
The commission advised drivers to the Chaoshan area and Fujian Province to use Guangshan Road or Yongguan Expressway to avoid the congested Baiyunzai and Houmen sections of Shenshan Expressway.
Drivers to Huizhou, Heyuan and Meizhou can use Shanshen Road to avoid the congested Shiba-Reshui section of Huihe Expressway.
Drivers to Shaoguan, Qing-yuan in northern Guangdong Province are advised to avoid the congested Chang'an-Tai-ping section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen Expressway by using S358, Fuhai Road and Guangzhou-Shenzhen Riverside Expressway.

The peak for vehicles returning to Shenzhen after the holidays is expected to arrive with the Lantern Festival, which marks the end of the Spring Festival period.
