San-in Expressway, Japan

14 March 2015

Two segments of the San-in Expressway opened to traffic in Japan. They are both super two expressways.

* Harai - Nishimura: 8 km (near Hamada)
* Nima ishimiginzan - Yusato: 6 km (near the world heritage site of the Iwami Ginzan Silver Mine)

The San-in Expressway is a long-distance expressway along the northern coast of western Honshu. It will eventually run from Tottori to Mine at a distance of circa 380 kilometers. Due to the low population density, most of the expressway is a super two highway, with infrequent four-lane sections to pass other vehicles.

Hainan - Yushu Expressway, China

18 December 2014

A little late, but very notable news.

The Hainan - Yushu Expressway opened to traffic in Qinghai Province on 18 December 2014. It is 636 kilometers long, making it by far the world's largest single motorway opening in history.

However, it is also the world's highest motorway by a considerable margin. It tops out at 4,824 meters altitude at Bayan Har Pass, not far from the Sichuan border. This blows away the previous record of the La Paz - El Alto Motorway in Bolivia at 4,100 meters. It also contains the world's highest motorway tunnels at circa 4,350 meters.

The expressway runs through very remote and barren terrain, but its mountain passes are relatively easy, albeit very high. There are a half dozen mountain passes in excess of 4,100 meters altitude. Most of these are tunneled by twin-tube tunnels, the highest of which is at circa 4,350 meters altitude. The highest pass, Bayan Har, is not tunneled.

Most of the expressway was built by twinning the existing G214. Unfavorable alignments are bypassed, and so are the (very few) villages along the route. Most passes are tunneled through.
