Guazhou - Dunhuang Expressway, China

30 November 2014

A 145 kilometer segment of expressway opened to traffic in western Gansu, China. It runs from G30 at Guazhou to G215 at Dunhuang. It was constructed largely by twinning the existing S314 provincial road. It may be a part of G3011 Liuge Expressway that would run from Liuyuan to Golmud.

G3014 Kui'a Expressway, China

30 November 2014

A 289 kilometer segment of G3014 Kui'a Expressway opened to traffic in northwestern China. It runs from Urho to Altay, not far from the border with Mongolia. It is built entirely on a new alignment, so it is not a twinning of an existing highway like some other expressways in western China.

This would likely have completed the G3014 Kui'a Expressway from Kuytun to Altay. It is 550 kilometers long in total

G4512 Shuangnen Expressway, China

28 November 2014

A circa 25 kilometer segment of G4512 Shuangnen Expressway opened to traffic in Jilin province, from G12 at Baicheng to Zhenlai. Another segment of expressway along the southern side of Baicheng also opened to traffic, but it is unclear if this east-west route is also part of G4512, which runs north-south.

S19 Nentai Expressway in Heilongjiang province is likely a part of G4512. That 370 km expressway opened in 2010.

Joban Expressway, Japan

6 December 2014

Two segments of the Joban Expressway open to traffic in eastern Japan.

The southern segment runs from Namie to Minamisoma and is 18 kilometers long. The northern segment runs from Soma to Yamamoto and is 23 kilometers long. The opening of these segments were postponed after the 2011 tsunami and nuclear disaster at Daiichi Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant.

The last remaining segment between Tomioka and Namie is planned to open on 1 March 2015. It runs 6 kilometers from the nuclear plant.

The Joban Expressway is the coastal route from Tokyo to Sendai.

PR-445 - 12 km of lanes addition between Londrina and Cambé. It's only partially (22 km section upgrade). They probably did that as it was Londrina's 80 years birthday.

The whole area is fully urbanised, with a big shopping mall (82,000 sq meters GLA), two universities (around 35,000 students) and Londrina's (vertical) booming district, Gleba Palhano. It's also part of the corridor that brings Brazilian soybean produced in Midwest (and also in Londrina's region) to Paranaguá's harbour. It's pure chaos. This upgrade was needed at least 20 years ago.
