Sorry about the multiple posts but if I write a long post then for some reason I can't post it up, it gets lost.

The construction of Dali--Lijiang Expressway will be completed, and it is scheduled to be open to traffic by the end of this year.

By the end of October, main construction of the expressway has been fundamentally completed. Some service areas, gas stations and toll stations along the road are under construction.

By : InKunming | Published: 2013-November-28

So far, 1.83 billion yuan has been invested in the construction, accounting to 97.3 percent of the total budget. (Editors:Lynn, Cathy)

An extension to Luzhou is at least planned, since the Zunchi has been included in the new expressway plan as part of G4215 Chengzun expressway.

I have struggled to get the number of this expressway. I thought it would be S15xx, but it appears to be the Southeasternmost section of S50, which is planned to run to the Jiangxi border past Wuping.

Fujian numbering system is weird. They only plan four "main" expressways (S10, S30 -which is included in the national plan as G2517-, S35 -Also included in the plan, as G15W3- and S50), and then a ton more expressways with four digit numbers (Sxxxx), most of them linked to a national expressway.

G56 Hangrui Expressway

Most of it has been completed now. Guizhou had the largest missing link of G56, and opened pretty much all of it in the past 24 months.

If I'm correct the remaining missing links are in northern Hunan and eastern Yunnan. I estimate it's about 85 - 90% complete now.

Does anyone have any idea what's the total length (even if approximate) of new expressways opened in China this year (including remainder of this month)?

One last question concerning the G56, the section in Western Yunnan from Bao Shan to Ruli on the border has it been opened? At 90% completion would still leave around 200 kms to complete?

What is beyond me is why they have numbered the Kunming-Ruili expressway as G56 instead of G60. It doesn't feel that important with its current number, as it doesn't end in 0. Besides that, it would have kept the old Hurui expressway with one number.

G15W3 Yongguan Expressway

They appear to be developing a new expressway parallel to G15 (Shenhai Expressway). It's the G15W3 Yongguan Expressway from Ningbo to Dongguan.

They are most actively developing it in Fujian province, where it runs farther inland than G15. Additionally, S20 in Guangdong will likely become a part of G15W3.

Most of G15 was constructed in the 1990s and the entire coastal area is highly dependent on this single link, which has mostly 2x2 lanes outside the large cities. Developing an alternate route may be cheaper and more effective than a long-distance integral widening of the existing route. I think it will also benefit Fujian in case of typhoons, making coastal traffic less prone to high winds along G15W3, as opposed to G15 which runs near or along the coast.

China: Truck driver pays RMB 120,000 (20,000 US$) in cash for 550km trip on motorway

http://news.66wz.com/system/2013/12/11/103918243.shtml

Key facts:
100-Tyre truck, weighs 243.7T
The normal rate for truck is 0.08RMB/Tkm;
The rate goes up to 3 times when gross weight is over 55T (applies to the 55T);
rate goes to 6 times for 50% overloading;
10 times for 50%-100% overloading;
16 times for over 100%

(553 + 27.56 + 27.5x10 + 133.716)T550(km)0.08(RMB/Tkm)
= 120744.8
(The calculation in the news is rubbish)

The actual mileage used to calculate the fee was something longer than 550km so the final toll fee was 122690 RMB.

According to the fleet manager this is quite normal for them. The only concern is "It's not safe for a driver to carry hundreds of thousands RMB in cash".

The new expressway serves a border crossing that wasn't even paved until six years ago.
Wow, didn't knew the Kyrgyzstan expressway was U/C! I thought it would be built in the long term. BTW, since E60 also ends at Irkeshtam (but coming from the Kyrgyz side) they should extend it along this expressway .

I read somewhere this is part of the Chongqing mega ring road. Not less than 400 kilometers long.

A second ring road of Chengdu is also under construction. These cities are very large.

If anyone was wondering, I have nicknamed some Chinese expressways according to some features, like where they pass through. Below is a list of what I have renamed so far:

G6 Jingzang: Top of the World expressway (I may change this nickname to G4218. But seriously, are they going to build an expressway along the Xinzang highway???)
G7 Jingxin: Middle of Nowhere expressway (Just look its path between Linhe/Bayannur and Kumul/Hami. There's nothing at all. And AFAIK the Gansu section is already U/C!)
G20 Qingyin: World Economics expressway (number says all )
G30 Lianhuo: Faraway expressway (Its Western end is simply far. And closer to Europe than you thought, at the Kazakhstan border)
G3013 Kayi: Kyrgyzstan expressway (Just because where it ends)

I may come up with new nicknames. I was thinking of calling the Jinggang'ao the "Death expressway", but I don't think the fatality rate isn't that high.

Large in area but also vertical which gives them a totally different dimension. Like the film TRON you have a feeling of being trapped inside something and feel completely dwarfed by the sheer scale of it.

As a side note, there is also the G3015 Kuita expressway. It runs concurrent with G3014 from Kuytun to Karamay, then it will split and run to Tacheng at the Kazakhstan border.

Not that fast. This is not part of G3016 Qingyi, which only runs from Qingsuihe (Near Horgos and the Kazakhstan border) and Yining (Labelled as Ili in Google Maps). It is another expressway, of the form Sxx.

No more unknown expressways, at least not those included in the new plan, I see. The last one you mentioned, the Shahoku-Hohhot, is actually part of G59 Hubei expressway (Not the province ).
