Xinjiang expressway looks good and special, especially the signboard.

WTF is the transcription to roman alphabet in Xinjiang?

That's Uyghur, which uses Arabic characters. The two bilingual regions of China, Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia, have rules deviating from the standard used elsewhere in China. The other regions are to be signposted in Chinese characters and Latin characters; the bilingual regions are to be signposted in Chinese characters and the characters of the local second language.

But where is English? There should be tri-language signs in those regions.

I guess but the signs will get too crowded and hard to read.

From what I understand, it is not a requirement in those regions to also use English on the signs. Supposedly for the reason brought forward by Nima-Farid, namely to avoid overcrowded signs.

So you can't go to a anybody and say "that sign should be changed", you'd need to ask the powers that be to reconsider the present rules.

The vast majority of expressways and highways already have adequate shoulder, only in areas such as near on/off ramps or on bridges the shoulder is narrow or absent. Also Chinese highways observe a stay right except for pass rule so normally the shoulder is only on the right hand side.

I agree, I can understand English translation on highways and in major cities, but in the remote area of Xinjiang or Tibet it's probably unnecessary, it's not like foreigners drive by themselves to there often.

when it is near the exit it will change to a line and a dotted line to let the cars in inner lanes change to outer lanes for exiting
