Ken-O Expressway, Japan

31 October 2015

An important 11 kilometer missing link of the Ken-O Expressway around Tokyo opened to traffic today. It runs from Okegawa-Kitamoto IC to Shiraoka-Shubu IC.

This means there is now finally a meaningful bypass for through traffic from the expressways from the west (Chuo & Tomei Expressways) to the north (Tohoku Expressway), eliminating the need to drive via central Tokyo or suburban streets.

244 out of 282 kilometers of Ken-O Expressway, the outer beltway of Tokyo, is now open to traffic.

A11, Croatia

Exactly now at 17h CET is about to open 11 km stretch of A11 between interchange Jakuševec (with A3, Zagreb bypass) and Velika Gorica south, what makes A11 operational in lenght of 31 km between Zagreb and Lekenik. There is 17 km long missing link to Sisak.

Due to politic malversations, motorway is extremely expensive for such type of easy terrain (construction costs 122 mln € or 11,2 mln € per km; total costs with expropriation rise to imo astronomical 19,75 mln € per km)
