G95 Capital Area Expressway, China

31 December 2015

A huge stretch of the G95 Capital Area Expressway opened to traffic in Hebei province, a 305 kilometer segment which forms the northern part of the ring road around Beijing. It runs from Chengde to Chongli, where it absorbs the older Zhangcheng Expressway to Zhangjiakou. This stretch of expressway includes the 5 kilometer long Pingdingshan Tunnel.

Currently the western and northern part of the mega ringroad is in service, totaling 523 kilometers, which suggests the complete ring road may be close to 1000 kilometers in length. But most of it is very far from Beijing, some parts of the northern G95 is some 200 kilometers north of Beijing, almost going into Inner Mongolia.

G59 Hubei Expressway, China

31 December 2015

A 30 kilometer segment of the Hohhot - Beihai (Hubei) Expressway opened to traffic in Shanxi province. It runs in the far south of the province, from Yuncheng to Ruicheng, including a 9.7 kilometer long tunnel. It does not seem to include the bridge across the Yellow River. There's only a few kilometers missing until G30 in Henan.

G6001 Guiyang Ring Expressway, China

31 December 2015

The eastern part of the Guiyang Ring Expressway in Guizhou province opened to traffic. It connects to G75 at both ends and replaces G75 as the eastern ring road of Guiyang. The new part is 40 kilometers long, of which 29 kilometers has not been reported yet (the remaining 11 km was reported as being part of the G69). It is likely that G69 also runs across the 29 km segment east of Guiyang.

G56 Hangrui Expressway, China

31 December 2015

The westernmost 134 kilometers of the Hangzhou - Ruili (Hangrui) Expressway opened to traffic in southwestern Yunnan province. It runs from G5615 near Longling to Ruili, at the Myanmar border.

This segment already partially opened (72 km) as a 'trial opening' on 30 May 2015. It is now fully open to traffic.

It includes an interesting feature, where the expressway makes two U-turns to gain altitude west of Longling.

28 December 2015

A 19 kilometer segment of the Enshi - Guangyuan (Enguang) Expressway opened to traffic in western Hubei province. It runs from G50 west of Lichuan to G318, just before a tunnel. It is likely the easternmost segment of G5012, though falling short of Enshi by 70 kilometers.

G1816 Wuma Expressway, China

1 January 2016

An 58 kilometer segment of the Wuhai - Maqen (Wuma) Expressway is reported to have opened in the autonomous region of Ningxia. It runs from Yinchuan to Qingtongxia. It appears to have absorbed an 11 kilometer segment that opened earlier around 2011 just south of Yinchuan. In addition, a 7 kilometer extension of the Guqing Expressway (S12) to the G1816 opened to traffic.

Baidu Maps labels the route as S27. It is unclear how G1816 would run exactly from Wuhai to Ningxia, as there is a mountain range between the two possible routes.

G85 Yinkun Expressway, China

15 January 2016

An 88 kilometer segment of the Yinchuan - Kunming (Yinkun) Expressway opened to traffic in Sichuan province. It runs from Yingshan to Guang'an. Opening was originally scheduled for 28 December, but was delayed due to geological problems. The expressway runs through a number of tunnels, none of them are very long. It is the first segment of G85 north of Chongqing to open in Sichuan since its route was extended to start in Yinchuan instead of Chongqing.
