Is this part of the S19 between Swilcza (DK94) and the Rzeszów West interchange of the A4 motorway? A map would be useful

A5 + A10 Amsterdam, Netherlands

13 May 2013

The missing link of A5 and the second Coen Tunnel (A10) opened to traffic this morning. The newest part of A5 is an elevated motorway with a length of 3.3 kilometers. The new Coen Tunnel serves all traffic until the old tunnel is renovated in 2014. Which means no reduction of traffic congestion until then, as was widely expected.

Hefei Xinqiao Airport Expressway, China

10 May 2013

The 18 kilometer Hefei Xinqiao Airport Expressway opened to traffic near Hefei, Anhui. It connects the new Xinqiao Airport with the city of Hefei. Strangely they decided not to connect it immediately to the ring road, but rather via G312, an urban arterial at this point. However, there is an interchange with the Hushan Expressway (G40) which allows access to the Hefei area expressway system. The new expressway has 2x3 lanes with a wide median to support a future light rail.
