This segment is 161 kilometers long. An extension westward is under construction (total planned length: 222 km), but Baidu Maps shows it open to traffic as far as Xinmi.

Expressway 12, South Korea

22 December 2015

The works to construct the second carriageway of Expressway 12 between Gwangju and Daegu were inaugurated today. Expressway 12 was originally built as a 175 kilometer long super-two expressway, which opened mostly in 1984. It was one of Korea's deadliest roads, and works started in 2008 to widen the entire route to four lanes. They had to built numerous second tubes and second bridges, plus a number of realignments. The length that was completed as a four-lane expressway today is 143 kilometers. The easternmost 32 km was already widened in 2006.

[Italy] A1 - Variante di Valico

The new carriageway of A1 between La Quercia and Aglio has been opened today. The old (existing) alignment will be kept in operation, so this sector now has an unusual 4x2 configuration. The whole 32km project is now in operation, save for couple service area and adjustments on the old (existing) carriageways.
