AG-51, Spain

7 or 8 February 2015

The Galician government in Spain opened the AG-51 to the PLISAN logistics center 'last weekend'. No exact date was given. It is a 4.5 km four-lane autovía. It begins at a roundabout interchange with A-52 and runs to the PLISAN logistics center, which is still mainly undeveloped due to the economic crisis. Construction on AG-51 was halted for a long period of time, it was already nearly completed by late 2011.

G78 Shankun Expressway, China

16 February 2015

A 40 kilometer missing link of G78 Shankun Expressway reportedly opened in Yunnan province. It would run from Luliang to Shilin, but 2014 imagery shows only a four-lane highway with no controlled-access and no new expressway under construction. Even in China they don't build new expressways in one year, but it may have been an upgrade of that four-lane G324.
