“The eight clocks show dif­fer­ent times. Which one should I be­lieve?”

Global Times – Metro Beijing - - TWO CENTS -

So said a passerby who was walk­ing on an over­pass near the Ad­vanced Busi­ness Park (ABP) in Feng­tai dis­trict. Ac­cord­ing to nearby res­i­dents, two well-de­signed pedes­trian over­passes are near the ABP, and each of them has four clocks. How­ever, each clock shows a dif­fer­ent time, which con­fuses pedes­tri­ans. What’s more, the two es­ca­la­tors on both ends of the over­pass have not been used since they were built. The res­i­dents have ap­pealed to the lo­cal gov­ern­ment to re­pair the clocks and open the es­ca­la­tors as soon as pos­si­ble. (Source: Bei­jing Daily)
