Youyan Expressway, China

15 June 2016

The 31 kilometer long Youyang - Yanhe (Youyan) Expressway opened to traffic in Chongqing, China. It is a branch route from G65 to the Guizhou border, where it links up with the Yande Expressway that opened on 31 December 2015. The news paper article indicates the number S26, it's unclear if this is the Chongqing number, as I haven't seen any provincial expressway numbers for Chongqing. Chinese Wikipedia doesn't list S-numbers for Chongqing.

Another segment of the N7 expressway in central France opened to traffic, it's a circa 2.2 km segment from Maison-Rouge to Saint-Pierre-le-Moûtier-Nord, where it joins the Saint-Pierre-le-Moûtier bypass which opened in 1986. It opened with two carriageways, but one lane per direction. Four lanes should be available within a few weeks.

S8 expressway (Poland)

1 July 2016

The 4.8 km section between the Rzgów i/c and Łódź Południe i/c was opened simultaneously with the A1 between Stryków and Tuszyn.Here is the map of the section.
The section was completed in 2014, but, as the A1 was yet in construction, the opening of it had to be delayed till the A1 opening date.
Now it is possible to travel from Warsaw to Wrocław on either dual-carriageways or expressways/motorways.

A4 E40, Poland

A 41 km section of A4 motorway was opened today between Rzeszów and Jarosław in south-eastern Poland. It was the last remaining section of A4 motorway between Germany and Ukraine. It means that Ukraine is now connected to European motorway network.
The section is not fully completed though, it has speed limit of 100 km/h and one viaduct near Jarosław has only one carriageway opened. Full opening is scheduled for the end of August. The road was originally scheduled to be completed for Euro 2012...
