G7 Jingxin Expressway, China

16 November 2016

A 212 kilometer segment of G7 Beijing - Ürümqi Expressway in Inner Mongolia has finally opened to traffic. It runs from the Shanxi border to Hohhot, running parallel to G6. It has six lanes.

The history of this expressway is a little confusing. A completion was mentioned in December 2015, although Google Earth imagery shows the expressway completed in 2014. However newer imagery from 2016 shows no traffic on it.

The intermediate city of Ulanqab now has 3 bypasses to the south, the older G6 expressway, a four lane controlled-access G110 and now also G7 expressway, which runs right next to G110 at some points.

US 58, MLK Expressway, United States

November 30, 2016

The 1 mile extension of the Martin Luther King Expressway in Portsmouth, Virginia opens to traffic today. It runs from I-264 to London Boulevard, completing the freeway access to the Midtown Tunnel.

It was originally planned as a toll road, but the governor of Virginia bought the toll concession out a few years ago.

Two expressways opened to traffic in the autonomous region of Ningxia on 6 December.

A 28 kilometer segment of the G70 Fuyin Expressway opened to traffic in the far south of Ningxia. It runs from G22 to Jingheyuanzhen. It is not shown on Google Earth imagery yet, but is visible on 10 meter per pixel imagery of the Sentinel satellite imagery in Google Earth.

Also, the 47 kilometer long Guyuan - Xiji Expressway (S60) opened to traffic. It is an east-west expressway, also in the south of Ningxia. It contains at least one 2.5 km long tunnel. Most of the route is visible in regular Google Earth imagery from 2015.

G56 Hangrui Expressway, China

12 December 2016

The Yueyang section of the G56 Hangzhou - Ruili (Hangrui) Expressway opened to traffic in Hunan province. It does not include the large suspension bridge across Dongting Lake / Xiang River, which will open in December 2017, so it appears that a 27 kilometer eastern segment from G4 to Yueyang and a 13 kilometer western segment around Junshan opened to traffic.

A2, Netherlands

16 December 2016

The four-tube King Willem-Alexander Tunnel in Maastricht opened to traffic during the night from 15 to 16 December. It is a 2.4 kilometer long double-deck tunnel with eight lanes. This completes the missing link of the A2 motorway, which is now an uninterrupted motorway from Amsterdam to the Belgian border at Eijsden. The whole project - including redevelopment - has cost € 847 million. It was completed on time and within budget.

D8, Czech Republic

17 December 2016

The final 12.5 kilometer segment of the D8 motorway opens to traffic in the Czech Republic. It is a missing link from Bílinka to Řehlovice, completing the motorway from Prague to Dresden.

The project was running wildly behind schedule due to lawsuits and landslides. A section of the motorway is only open with single lane traffic due to ongoing instability of a slope. Construction on the motorway started in 2007.
