G7 Jingxin Expressway, China

15 July 2017

A 1242 kilometer section of expressway opened to traffic through the Gobi Desert in Northern China. It runs from Bayannur (Linhe) to Kumul (Hami). It is likely the largest single motorway opening in world history.

The new section includes;
* 930 kilometers in Inner Mongolia
* 134 kilometers in Gansu
* 178 kilometers in Xinjiang

The expressway runs through extremely remote regions, with approximately 1100 kilometers through almost unpopulated desert. The only town of significance on the 1242 kilometer trek is Ejin. Most of the expressway runs through an area where no roads existed before. The expressway runs close to the Mongolia border.
