G3013 Kayi Expressway, China

12 December 2013

The 214 kilometer long Kayi Expressway opened to traffic in extreme western China. It runs from Kashgar to the Kyrgyz border at Irkeshtam. It's the westernmost expressway of China, but it's not a full standard expressway, Google Earth imagery clearly shows a 9 - 10 meter wide road west of Ulugqat, and a full expressway east of Ulugqat. The new expressway serves a border crossing that wasn't even paved until six years ago.
