Three expressways, China

26 January 2017

Three expressways opened to traffic in Guizhou province at midnight, 26 January 2017.

* S30 Kaixi Expressway (Kaiyang - Xifeng): 20 km
* S30 Xiqian Expressway (Xifeng - Qianxi): 87 km
* S55 Baiqian Expressway (Jinsha - Qianxi): 56 km

The S30 Xiqian Expressway includes a 375 meter high cable-stayed bridge. The S30 Kaixi Expressway includes a 250 and 170 meter high cantilevered box girder bridge.

The S30 Kaixi Expressway appears to have opened only partially, as the eastern half to the Guizun Expressway cannot open until the Guizun Expressway opens.
