Storyline

Traffic departments in China's northernmost province of Heilongjiang are working day and night to clear snow on expressways and escort stranded passengers back home.

The heavy snow forced many expressways to close, stranding large numbers of travelers who are out on their Spring Festival holiday.

Expressway administrations have sent eight vehicles and 24 workers to escort more than 180 buses, transporting over 8,000 tourists.

"After the heavy snow yesterday, we launched an emergency plan. Now over 600 large snowplows are working on roads," said Chen Ziliang, an official from the Expressway Administration Bureau of Heilongjiang Province.

"I started to work at six in the morning and have been working for 14 hours," said Dong Junqi, a snowplow driver.

Traffic police officers also worked with expressway administration to escort vehicles.

"We've just completed our last mission. We have dispatched 16 police vehicles and 22 police officers to cooperate with the expressway administration," said Wu Junfeng, a traffic police officer.
