Most of the pictures were shot right before or after the openness of the roads, when looks brand new and very little traffics usually. However many of the routes picked up traffic pretty fast and some of them are jamed with cars and truck quite often.

China adds about 5,000km newly built expressways every year, and in addition another 5,000km 1st-grade highways (4+ lanes but not fully access-controlled).

In other countries most of highways is free.But I think in China that's not forever,just like telephone,the one who use early(new) should pay more.I think traffic and telephone those kinds of things,only enlarge to a certain scale can bring profit ,so who use earlier should pay more.
