S? Jianhe - Sinan Expressway, China

28 November 2013

A 154 kilometer new expressway opens to traffic in eastern Guizhou, China. It runs from G60 at Jianhe to G56 at Sinan. It's a north-south expressway with 2x2 lanes. Little is known about this expressway, as there is no recent Google Earth imagery in the area. It likely contains bridges and tunnels given the mountainous terrain.

Niayesh Expressway, Tehran, Iran

30 November 2013

The eastern extension of the Niayesh Expressway (Farsi: بزرگراه نیایش) in Tehran opens to traffic. It's a 3 kilometer extension that runs underground in a twin-tube tunnel. The tunnel length is circa 3 kilometers, but is exaggerated on the internet as being the world's second longest urban tunnel (6.6 km or 10.2 km). The first figure includes the length of both tubes combined, the second figure the length including ramps and adjoining infrastructure.

Huangshan - Wucaiwan Expressway, China

7 December 2013

The Huangshan - Wucaiwan Expressway opens to traffic in Xinjiang, China. It runs parallel to G216 through the desert, in a very remote area northeast of Ürümqi. The expressway is 96 kilometers long. It doesn't appear to serve anything else than a distant power plant (which appears to be new, Google Earth shows cooling towers under construction).
