G78 Shankun Expressway, China

18 January 2014

A 3 kilometer segment of the G78 Shankun Expressway opened to traffic near Shantou in Guangdong province. It's half of the six kilometer missing link of G78.

Google Earth imagery from March 2013 suggests there are some expropriation issues on the missing link to G15.

Newcastle Inner City Bypass, Australia

A 1.8 km extension of the Newcastle Inner City Bypass opens to traffic in New South Wales, Australia. It runs from Shortland to Sandgate and has cost $ 143 million, which is quite a high price tag for a short project like this.

D222 St-Brieuc, France

27 January 2014

A 2 kilometer extension of the Saint-Brieuc southern beltway opened to traffic in France. It runs from Trégueux (D27) to La Croix Gibat (D1). It's a 2x2 expressway.

The idea for the long term is that D222 will alleviate the N12 through Saint-Brieuc from through traffic.

A-8, Spain

3 February 2014

A 15.9 kilometer segment of A-8 opens to traffic in Northern Spain. It runs around the town of Mondoñedo. This completes the A-8 in Galicia.

The segment has cost € 191.7 million, or € 12 million per kilometer, relatively expensive by Spanish standards, owing to the hilly terrain. The new motorway includes two new interchanges and several viaducts, the longest being 757 meters long and 103 meters tall. Total viaduct length is 2442 meters.

I was about to say no new expressways were opened in China for a month now, but I checked the map and I found that on 21 February they opened a 3.5 km expressway in Tianjin eastern suburbs, about halfway between the city center and the Binhai area.

There were no activities since most workers are off for vacation during Chinese New Year. The new opening should be part of the 40km Ji-Shan expressway of Tianjin, opened on Feb 21.
