I wonder how much is the net increase in the Chinese motorway network. I mean the length of new motorways minus the length of closed ones due to collapsing bridges.

Nearly all of them are listed here.

These are not your average European openings of 5 - 10 kilometers. 1.300 kilometers of expressways opened in China since August 1.

Some openings during last six months Chris has not spotted:

March 12th: G18 Hunyuan-Lingqiu (70 km)
June 30th: G1514 Fu'an-West of Zhouning (62 km)
July 9th: G55 Sonid left banner-Chahar back left banner (165 km)
July 26th: G56 Zunyi-Jinsha (67 km)

I've only listed national expressways. By the way, that Qinghai expressway Chris mentioned, from between Tianjun and Ulan to Haixi, is actually G6, only they have misnamed it as G8.
