from the road sign it's located at Daruoyan Mountain near Wenzhou in Zhejiang Province. The highway should be S26 Zhuji-Yongjia expressway crossing the center of Zhejiang Province.

There haven't been any new expressway openings since early February. That doesn't happen often in China. I suppose it has to do with Chinese New Year.

Whaaaaaat? You don't know this is the S35??? Enough ranting, it is the Taishun extension. It will run South to the Fujian border near Taishun, and I believe Fujian will continue it to G1514 near Fu'an.

S35 is a different expressway according to Chinese Wikipedia:

http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%B3%...85%AC%E8%B7%AF

Taishun - Wencheng is an east-west route.

G55 Erguang Expressway, Datong, Shanxi

China only has expressways for about 25 years, but already they demolished one.

It's the G55 Erguang Expressway that forms the eastern bypass of Datong, Shanxi. It was realigned in 2012.

Parts of the Friendship Highway between Nepal and China are live on Soso Street view, here is the bridge between Nepal and Tibet near Zhangmu:

This rerouting project was initiated in 2009 by Datong government, to give space to the new Yudong Development Zone of Datong (where old expressway passes). The project was building a new 7.878km expressway and demolishing the old one with an investment of $70 million by Shanxi government. source

BTW this is not the only expressway rerouting project currently ongoing.

Today 7.0-magnitude quake hits SW China's Sichuan, hundreds dead

Ya'an-Chengdu and Chongqing-Suining expressway (opened 2012) are playing a critical role in disaster relief.









RIP to the victims

Wow. That development was so fast! Amazing. In 2009, there was even no water in the lake, but in 2012, there was a water in the lake and several houses and some factories in there. Unlike in 2009, it is almost only a cropland there.

They only used 3 years to realign and to develop the area. Good job, China!

It is part of a longer east-west expressway that runs from Fuzhou to the Guangdong border near Yongding. It's an inland expressway that runs parallel to the G15 at 50 - 100 km distance.
This is a tourist expressway where it connects famous sites of Mt Qingyun, Mt Yunding, Mt Tianmen.
