這裡的picked-up是什麼意思?

The National Freeway Bureau says traffic picked-up yesterday - with

congestion being reported on several of the island's main highways.

However, the freeway bureau says travel time between Taipei and Kaohsiung

remained at than five-and-a-half hours in both directions.

Traffic volume reached an estimated 2.9 million vehicles yesterday.

The freeway bureau says traffic will pick-up from today through Sunday, with

over 3-million vehicles forecast to be using the freeways tomrrow.

上面這則交通新聞,看了沒全懂,想請大師幫忙翻譯一下

另外,這裡出現兩次的pick-up該作何解?

還有,第2段裡的...remained at than five-and-a-half hours...

這裡的than是什麼意思?怎麼會這麼用?

已更新項目:

感謝 羅莉知識長,您說的有道理

但如果以實際情況而論,由另一個觀點來看

交通擁塞通常的確是漸漸形成,而非突然塞爆

所以我比較支持 prisoner26535 知識長 的解釋翻譯!

    上面這則交通新聞,看了沒全懂,想請大師幫忙翻譯一下

    The National Freeway Bureau says traffic picked-up yesterday - with

    congestion being reported on several of the island's main highways.

    國家高速公路局說: 交通在昨日(緩緩)增加-島內有多處幹道有堵塞的報導.

    However, the freeway bureau says travel time between Taipei and Kaohsiung remained at less than five-and-a-half hours in both directions.

    然而,高速公路局還說: 台高之間雙向仍維持在5.5時之下.

    Traffic volume reached an estimated 2.9 million vehicles yesterday.

    交通量在昨日高達2.9百萬輛.

    The freeway bureau says traffic will pick-up from today through Sunday, with over 3-million vehicles forecast to be using the freeways tomorrow.

    高速公路局還說:交通量在今日與星期日間會(緩緩)增加,預計在明日會高達3百萬輛.

    另外,這裡出現兩次的pick-up該作何解?

    這些pick-up是動詞 "(緩緩)增加"的意思.

    還有,第2段裡的...remained at than five-and-a-half hours...

    這裡的than是什麼意思?怎麼會這麼用?

    是less than是妳少打了less.

    > 2) pick up有加快或變順暢的意思,

    敬然有人應與降差? 連pick-up 的意思都在胡說!!!

    > 但在本文不合文意,

    是螺舨主在誤入歧途

    > 應是peak(ed) up(達到高峰)才對。

    這又差更遠了!

    2015-02-22 20:09:26 補充:

    (緩緩)增加是習慣上的應用

    主要是說“增加”,習慣上是“多”用在“逐漸”的狀況中.

    但是不論如何,這位版主所說的“改善”是絕對不但是錯誤的還是剛好相反!

    2015-02-22 20:18:31 補充:

    至於螺對用字的習慣批評也是極端.

    pick up是時常用在“漸增“的狀況上

    例子:

    The store business starts to pick up in December and the manager hires a few more temps.

    The rain fall picks up when the depression approach the ocean.
