Hanoi - Lao Cai Expressway, Vietnam

21 September 2014

The remaining segment of the Hanoi - Lao Cai Expressway opened to traffic in Vietnam. It is unclear to me which part opened yesterday. The entire expressway is 245 kilometers long and runs towards Kunming in China. The northern part is a super two highway. Hanoi - Yen Bai has four lanes, while Yen Bai - Lao Cai has two lanes.

It wasn't reported that on 2014 July 20 () a section of Chinese G42 Hurong expressway across the Hubei-Chongqing border was opened. Only a section in Hubei remains...

Proof that 2+1 roads are inadequate, when even Sweden is abandoning them.

An extension of G6011 to G4W3 and S84 closing a loop around Shaoguan (With G4W3 and G6011) have been opened too.

More Chinese expressways

In addition to Guangle or Leguang (Or it was the other way round?) expressway, a good number of expressways opened in China in the last few days. Some are already marked on Baidu Maps (One of the very few reliable Chinese things in existence), others are not yet but they should appear soon.

September 25: Shanxi's S40, Shenchi-Hequ (Near the Shanxi/Shaanxi/Inner Mongolia tripoint) (99 km).
September 26: S29 Panjin Harbor expressway (16.5 km), S20 Dengta-Liaozhong (42 km) and S26 Jiantang-Xincheng (90 km), all three in Liaoning. The later is not the G4515, which should run to Suizhong instead.
September 27: G4W3, already said.
September 28: G59 Hubei expressway in Hubei , Nanxiang-G42 near Dangyang (68 km), G75 in Guangxi Zhuangzu, Hechi-Du'an Yaozu (98 km), and Shanxi's S45, Xipingbao-Tianzhen (ca. 30 km). The last missing link of G75 in Guangxi is now open and completes the expressway all the way from Longnan (Gansu) to Xuwen (Guangdong). S45 will tie onto the short Shanxi stretch of G7.
Yesterday: G4E in Hubei, Tongcheng-Hunan border (24 km)
Today: G76 realignment in Fujian near Xiamen (Dongfu-Changtai) (ca. 20 km)
November 30 (For some strange reason they were on Baidu since late September): G3014 Fuhai-Altay (ca. 140 km) and entire nonredundant G3015 Karamay-Kazakhstan border near Tacheng (labelled as Qoqek in Google Maps) (ca. 220 km), both in Xinjiang Uygur.
December 16 (Again, Baidu was early): Guangxi Zhuangzu's S52, Laibin-Wuxuan (ca. 75 km).
Date unknown, it appears in Baidu Maps: G7 across Mori Kazakh in Xinjiang Uygur (ca. 75 km).

That is not a motorway, just a 2-lane road with junctions, for example here. Latvia still has no real motorways, as confirmed here. There are motorway-style roads there, but they are not high enough standard.

This discussion should be held in Latvian thread, not here. Also, the OSM map is incomplete, to my knowledge, currently there is no complete map showing the new route. A12 is built, keeping in mind, that the road would need a second-carriegeway built in later years.

how often do you see new build 8 lane highways like 364 constructed in the western world? Usually you only reach 8 lanes with a widening, and new highways are either 4 or 6 lanes.
