That looks like the G15 bridge at Fuzhou.

From the Chinese bridges thread I know the following expressways are under construction:
G69 Yinbai expressway East of Wanzhou and between Weng'an and Guiyang. These sections include the Wanzhou Fuma Yangtze river and Qingshui river bridges, respectively. From the expressway map at Wikipedia, it seems G69 will form the Eastern beltline of Wanzhou (formerly Wan county), while G5012 will cross the Yangtze upstream of the city (technically a district of Chongqing despite being over 200 km away)
Yunnan section of G4216 Lipan Chengli expressway. Includes the Jinshajiang Yangtze* river bridge near Lijiang.
G4218 Yaye expressway between Ya'an and Kangding (labelled as Garze in Google Maps). Includes the Dadu river bridge at Luding. This section is a very very difficult one due to terrain, with peaks up to 6000 meters a.s.l. In addition this is an earthquake prone area, and climate isn't that good either. This makes this expressway (which will go on bridges or tunnels for 82% of its lenght) the most challengening one ever built in the world. By the way, the only Tibetan expressway so far, the [Lhasa] Jichang (i.e. Airport) expressway, is also part of G4218.

*Better to put the most known name of the river. I would do the same with the Langcang Mekong and Nujiang Salween rivers

I believe that branch will be a ramp from G95 to the proposed G109 expressway, which will run from G4501 in Western Beijing suburbs to the Shoududiquhuanxian. Interesting enough, this expressway will be named the Jinglan expressway, as if the expressway were to run all the way to Lanzhou. Since the G109 runs all the way to Lhasa, maybe we can name it the Jingzang expressway as well as G6 .

How many vehicles use that superhighway daily? China is converting into a giant version of Spain. Beijing (like Madrid radials) rings are crap, but then there are 4+4 highways in the mountains for AADT 3000.

Ah, the delayed section of G7 inside G4501 in Beijing. Still, I don't see works on the hilly section between Changping and Yanqing. Google imagery is fresh new, since it already appears there (And I was about to report that!). The imagery is recent in central Inner Mongolia too, where there is a thing that puzzles me: The yet-to-be-opened G7 appears in a more advanced stage of construction than the already completed S24. In the same Ulanqab area I see an expressway which when completed will form a ring road with G65 and G7 around Jining and, if it wasn't enough with both Jingzang (G6) and Jingxin, a G110 bypass that mostly parallels the later. And it appears G7 isn't yet U/C past Zhangjiakou and through Shanxi...

Other expressways I've spotted U/C include the following:
G1516 in Si county, Anhui near the Jiangsu border.
G95 near Langfang.
An unknown expressway running North of where G18 currently ends. It can't be part of G18 since I believe the Rongwu will end at G6 near Hainan (Yes, that district has the same name as the island even in hanzi ), however a part of me sees G18 entering Ningxia even if it goes against the name. But then there's G2012.

By the way, I was thinking about G59, which according to the planning maps will cross the Yellow river 'Shaanxi' - i.e. West of Shan County, Henan. The bridge is not U/C yet, but the Hubei (not the province ) is U/C in Shanxi up to G22, and from G20 to S46. In addition I've found another ring road U/C, this time around Lvliang (Spot the v!) of which G59 will be part.

G4 Jinggang'ao Expressway

Check it out, G4 is being widened southwest of Beijing (to Shijiazhuang). Instead of adding lanes, they take out the entire expressway and build a new one.

This is pretty interesting. Why would they do that? When was the original G4 built? Perhaps the alignment and other standards were not sufficient to simply add lanes and a complete rebuild made better sense? Still pretty interesting.

Edit: according to Wikipedia construction of the Beijing-Shijiazhuang part started in 1986 and ended in 1993. So that's one of the oldest expressways in China. Probably explains why they chose to completely rebuild it.
