In case anyone felt that Tianjin or Tangshan were a safe bet for Plan B during the Olympics, I have some bad news for you.

Tianjin to limit building construction, factory pollution during Olympics

Tianjin, one of the co-host cities of the Beijing Olympic Games, is to ban construction at key building sites and limit factory sewage from July 25 to Sept. 20 to help improve environment for the Olympic Games

The city will also suspend some operations of 40 factories, including two cement factories and 6 factories which cause effluvial contamination.

Olympic co-host Tianjin to limit vehicles on road

From July 25 to Sept. 25, vehicles with odd and even numbers in Tianjin, an Olympic co-host city bordering Beijing, will take turns running within the outer ring road to guarantee smooth traffic and clean air.

China to close plants over Games

On Friday, similar action was taken in the city of Tangshan, 150 km (90 miles) east of Beijing where about 300 factories will suspend their operations.

With disputed traffic in Beijing, Tianjin, and Tangshan now confirmed, I suggest readers read the DHL’s Updated China Olympic Contingency Plan.
