G1503 Xiamen Ring Expressway, China

10 June 2015

A 12 kilometer extension of the G1503 Xiamen Ring Expressway opened to traffic. It runs from near Fangyang to G15W3 (also numbered as S30 on maps). It includes a 4.5 km tunnel.

It may possibly be part of the G15W3, which is an inland alternative route for G15 along the coast. G1503 Xiamen Ring Expressway could also be routed across other existing expressways, such as the new alignment of G76 around Zhangzhou, and the recently opened Zhangzhou southern bypass.

13 June 2015

New partial opening 40 km out of 405 km Central Spine Road upgrade project in peninsular Malaysia (Federal Route 8) linking Karak to Kota Bharu in Northeast. The new section starts from Padang Tengku to Merapoh and is linked to another newly built section towards Merapoh.

The alignment is new to bypass villages and former single carriageway and is built double carriageway with lilo/parclo or diamond interchanges. As the traffic is sparse around the jungle, the construction is fully funded by the government instead of typical private initiative.

G3012 Tuhe Expressway, China

20 June 2015

A very large segment of G3012 Tuhe Expressway in Xinjiang was inaugurated on 20 June. It runs across 428 kilometers from Aksu to Kashgar. Google Earth imagery suggests that some of it was already in service by 2013. The entire expressway was built on a new alignment, and is not a twinning of the existing road as happened in some cases in western China.

This means there is now an expressway from eastern China all the way to near the Kyrgyzstan border. You can drive from northeast Manchuria all the way to the far west of China on expressways; more than 6,000 kilometers.
