[TAR] Highways in Tibet • བོད་བགྲོད་ལམ། • 西藏公路

This is the thread for the development of roads, highways and expressways in Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR).

There are currently eight roads to Tibet from the outside world:
  • Qinghai–Tibet Highway
  • Sichuan–Tibet Highway, northern route
  • Sichuan–Tibet Highway, southern route
  • Yunnan–Tibet Highway
  • Xinjiang–Tibet Highway
  • Sino–Nepal Friendship Highway
  • Ancient Tang–Bod Trail
  • Bingzhongluo–Chawalong–Chayu route

Besides, there are two more international crossings:
  • Burang, only open to foreign pilgrims to Mount Kailash
  • Yadong, closed since 1962 Sino–Indian War

In 2011, Tibet invested CN¥8.5 billion (~US$1.3 billion) in road development, added 4,600 km of new roads to the network. By the end of 2011, Tibet has 63,000 km of roads in total. There is currently only one expressway in Tibet. The 38-km long Lhasa to Gonggar Airport Expressway, opened in July 2011.

Hong Kong and Guam are not independent either, and we have threads. I do not expect to see G6 in Lhasa by the end of this decade.

Here is a link to the SOSO Street View, which covers a large area in Lhasa, include suburban.
