SH 99, Grand Parkway, Houston, USA

April 11, 2014

A 13 mile / 20 kilometer segment of the SH 99 Grand Parkway has now been converted into a tolled freeway. All overpasses have been completed between US 59 and Westpark Tollway. This allows continuous travel from US 59 southwest of Houston to US 290 northwest of Houston. The frontage roads are not continuous. Some of the new freeway segments are slightly substandard due to narrow or absent shoulders.

Addis Ababa - Nazret Expressway, Ethiopia

5 May 2014

Chinese premier Li Keqiang attended the inauguration of the Addis Ababa - Nazret Expressway in Ethiopia today. The 80 kilometer, six-lane toll expressway connects the capital city of Addis Ababa with Nazret, also known as Adama. It is the first intercity expressway of Ethiopia and one of the longest in sub-saharan Africa.

It is called the first expressway of Ethiopia, though several parts of the Addis Ababa Ring Road are also expressway-standard with grade-separation and parallel roads for local traffic.
