Those are really nice looking, but not impressive in my book.

nice freeways, but not too impressive. China doesn't have as many cars as in the United states, so maybe in a few years or in a decade or so, it will be lot of cars in rural China. American freeways are busy, even in rural areas. I don't see many cars in rural area of China in the pictures. I-90 6 lane freeway over snoquailimie pass in Washington state gets average of 26,000 cars a day, one of the busiest mountain pass in the US.

I think the shrubs growing in the highway medians, while decent looking, are very impractical. It makes the garbage-picker's job extremely dangerous, forcing them to walk along the freeway instead of inside the median. Also, this makes it more dangerous for drivers as well. Just put grass there instead.

i suppose when some of those pictures were taken..the highways were not open yet..

i still remembered when the badaling highway just opened in 1996 (from downtown Beijing to Great Wall), it took us 4.5 hours to complete the 130 km trip, too many cars...

maybe it blocks the headlight of cars driving in the opposite direction, thus makes it safer for drivers?

Perhaps. I think the hazard posed by people walking beside 80-100km/h vehicles is greater than that posed by any opposing headlights not already blocked by the guardrails though.

Wow, I've never seen so much greenery planted purposely so nicely along a highway and at interchanges. Wow, I might almost say some of those look like eco-friendly highways with all that greenery, very cool. Some of those look really new though - the one picture with the really tall highway looks somewhat scary.
