A7, Luxembourg

23 September 2015

The last segment of the A7 motorway 'Nordstrooss' opens to traffic today. It runs from Waldhof near Luxembourg City to Lorentzweiler and is 8 kilometers long. The motorway contains two tunnels; 'Stafteler' (1850 m) and 'Grouft' (2966 m).

The motorway opening allows free-flow of north-south traffic around the city of Luxembourg. In a sense, it finally connects northern and southern Luxembourg without having to navigate the city streets of Luxembourg City.

Construction started in 2003 with clearing the alignment of trees. Traffic will be allowed to enter the motorway around 7 or 8 p.m.

CA-35, Spain

24 September 2015

A 5 kilometer extension of autovía CA-35 into Cádiz, Andalusia, Spain was inaugurated today. The four-lane motorway runs across the Puente de La Pepa, a large cable-stayed bridge. It is the fourth longest cable-stayed bridge in Europe, and with the highest clearance (over sea) at 69 m. Construction was delayed considerably and took 8 years. The cost was € 511 million, making it one of the most expensive motorway projects in Spain.

G12S Yanchang Expressway, China

29 September 2015

A new stretch of expressway opened in eastern Jilin province. It runs from near Fusong (a locality called Huayuankoucun) to Songjianghe Airport, not far from the Korean border. An exact length is not given, but a Google Earth measurement suggests a length of approximatly 63 kilometers.

It is an extension of the S26 Fuchang Expressway. It could also be a part of G12S, Yanchang Expressway (Yanji - Changchun Expressway). However, the current ending near Songjianghe doesn't suggest an extension of this expressway towards Yanji. It would run near Baekdu Mountain.

Baidu Maps also shows as G11 being completed from Fusong to the Heilongjiang border. G12S / S26 would have a concurrency with G11 west of Fusong.

G3017 Wujin Expressway, China

1 October 2015

A 63 kilometer stretch of expressway opened to traffic in Gansu province. It consists of two segments, a 13 kilometer extension of G3017 Wujin Expressway to the S17 south of Jinchang, and a 50 kilometer extension towards the border with Inner Mongolia. I'm not sure what expressway this is.

The new expressways are visible in Google Earth, but only in the vicinity of Jinchang, not through the desert towards the Inner Mongolia border.
