US 290, Manor Expressway, Austin, Texas, USA

December 1

The first part of the Manor Expressway, a toll road, opens in the Austin, Texas area today. It's just over a mile long and includes a stack interchange with US 183 which will open gradually over the next week or so.

The Manor Expressway will be completed in 2014, running to just east of SH 130 toll road.

Did Portugal switch to the Imperial system?

The motorway is still not opened. They are doing some kind of investigation on it. The whole traffic now goes through Ampfing and that causes big traffic jams, because the old B12 isn´t usable anymore.

Bielefeld doesn't exist!

8th December 2012: A new alignement for G40 between Yangzhou and Nanjing has opened to traffic. 76 km. Apparently the old expressway was substandard. It will remain as G328.

And I figured out what is the expressway they opened on 5th December near Hefei: The new airport expressway, even if the airport isn't operative yet. 17,6 km.

Just to clarify, that is Shimanto-cho and not Shimanto (which is a different city). The expressway section is between these two points.
I notice a tunnel is part of the project, I wonder if this is 2-lane aswell. To widen it would cost a lot.

Thanks for the clarification. I spend some time trying to understand how 15km in this thread translates to 40km between Nakatosa and Shimanto. I even tried to read the Japanese Wikipedia using google translate. At least they had a link to a map of the project.
To have two cities so close with similar name can be quit confusing.

As for the tunnel, I believe it is possible to built another tube parallel to the first one. That way if they want to widen the road you don't have any work to do in the existing tunnel (except for a few signalisation changes).
