The route is at worst U/C . Some parts (I believe half of it) are already open.

China to expand Yangtze transport capacity

English.news.cn | 2014-06-11 22:07:18 | Editor: An
BEIJING, June 11 (Xinhua) -- China will build a multi-tier transport system along the Yangtze River to help boost construction of an economic belt along the waterway, the State Council said on Wednesday.

Better use of the so-called "golden waterway" can boost economic integration between developed and impoverished regions and inject fresh energy into China's economic growth, said a statement released after a State Council executive meeting chaired by Premier Li Keqiang.

The country will dredge the Yangtze and increase the navigation capacity of the Three Gorges Dam, according to the statement.

China will build railways, roads and airports that have connections with ports along the Yangtze River to form a multi-tier transport network. It will improve oil and gas transportation facilities in the waterway.

The State Council said the country is also working on standardized ships adapted for the Yangtze and will encourage the development of energy-saving vessels.

The statement also stressed the significance of environmental protection during construction of the Yangtze River economic belt.

The river runs east to west over 6,300 km and is the world's third largest in terms of length and water volume. The waterway joins less developed inland provinces to prosperous Shanghai.

Official data showed that combined GDP of the 11 provinces and municipalities along the river amounted to 2.6 trillion yuan (415 billion U.S. dollars) last year, 41.2 percent of the national total.

In his report to the annual session of the National People's Congress in March, Li explained how China will exploit the waterway by developing an economic belt along its banks.

Waterway development could balance regional growth and encourage businesses to relocate from crowded coastal areas to less developed inland areas, according to the premier.

doesn't seem to be directly related to any highway development, but it would be interesting to see what type of railway systems they would develop

[InKunming--Kunming] "It shortens the travel time. We can have breakfast in Thailand, enjoy our lunch in Laos, and have supper in China," said Yoo Chienyuenyongpong, chairman of a Thailand-based logistics company.
He was referring to the Kunming-Bangkok Highway, a transnational road running from the capital of southwest China's Yunnan Province through Laos to Bangkok, Thailand's capital.
Since it opened in 2008 and the fourth bridge across Mekong River was put into use last year, China, Laos and Thailand have become more connected, socially and economically, he said.
Logistics enterprises want more free flows of goods to improve efficiency and reduce costs.
"In the next decade, cross-border transportation and logistics in the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) will enter into a new era with enhanced ties between China, South and Southeast Asian countries," said Liu Jinxin, secretary-general of the Greater Mekong Subregion Logistics Research Center, on Monday.
GMS comprises Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, and China's Yunnan Province. About 240 million people live in the region.
"We hope to deepen cooperation, improve local logistics network and build stable and harmonious relations with more nations and companies," said Yoo Chienyuenyongpong.
His expectation was echoed by Somphone Phasavath, deputy managing director of Lao Freight Forwarder, who said there are about 18 transnational roads connecting Laos with neighboring countries.
Foreign trade volume in Mohan Port on the China-Laos border exceeded 1.5 million tonnes last year, up 26.7 percent year on year. From January to April this year, the figure stood at 992,000 tonnes, a 60 percent increase compared with the same period last year.
The two countries worked hard to establish the Mohan-Moding economic cooperation zone, giving priority to warehousing and logistics.
Under the influence of globalization and regional integration, border regions are not forbidden zones anymore, but have great economic opportunities, said Cai Jin, deputy head of the China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing.
He said cross-border cooperation has also been expanded into new areas in addition to trade, so the logistics industry needs to be developed urgently.
Enterprises Cambodia, China, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar and Thailand established a logistics alliance this month "to share freight resources and provide secure transnational transport services."

At 3:09 is a S27 shield, so this expressway is the G1013 Haizhang expressway.

And the G42 section that was reported to have opened on 8th April actually did so on 1st June.

The Huangyi Bridge opened to traffic yesterday. It's part of G4215 near Luzhou in Sichuan province. It crosses the Yangtze River.

It's a cable-stayed bridge with a total length of 1.233 meters and a main span of 520 meters. The pylons are 210 and 123.5 meters tall. The pylons are shaped like a wine bottle. Apparently there are vineyards in the region.

AADT figures are probably not released by the Chinese government.

Or they are hard to find.

Anyway, Google Maps got updated to the end of 2012, so as always there is data missing. New sections include G10 to Yakeshi (Actually it's open up to Hailar...), the G25 gaps in Shandong and Fujian, as well as many provincial expressways.

Edit: I've been looking around Jilin province, and I've found that damn missing G25 section from Changchun to Shuangliao U/C. Also G1112 from Tonghua to Meihekou, as well as a widening of G1 Southeast of Changchun. Apparently the widening of the Liaoning section is planned, as can be seen at the S17 autobahndreieck...

I never get tired of searching new expressways U/C in China. For example, 'that provincial expressway from Xingtai (Henan) to Zuoquan (Shanxi)' (By the way, it's not an unknown provincial expressway but the G2516 Donglv expressway), as well as a ringroad around the former.
Another one I found U/C is the G76 around the Guizhou/Sichuan border, at first I thought it was another expressway since it runs wrong way for a while, but according to the Wikipedia map it is indeed the Xiarong. I expect it to be U/C all the way to Bijie. Another thing that puzzled me is that expressway West of Bijie that appeared in the latest Google Maps update labelled as S20 instead of G56, but then I thought (and confirmed by the same Wiki map) the Hangrui will go South to serve Liupanshui.

Apparently Hebei doesn't number its expressways . I don't like that.

Now G4215 is complete. I was thinking of those important missing gaps, but I decided to check the whole national expressway status instead . Here are the missing sections as of today:
G1: None
G1N: All but the Hebei exclave section and another near Zunhua.
G0111: Hebei/Shandong border-Zhanhua
G2: Cangzhou-Jinan
G0211: All but Renqiu-Suning (G45 overlap)
G3: Beijing-Tianjin but a section near Yongqing, and Nanping-Fuzhou (or if you are picky, Taibei).
G3W: All but the Henan section.
G4: None. Technically since it's closed for widening one can consider the Gaobeidian-Xinle section as missing.
G4E: Wuhan-Hubei/Hunan border and Hunan/Guangdong border-Boluo.
G4W: Zhuhai-Macau
G4W2: Yueyang-Changsha and Hunan/Guangdong border-Guangzhou (G107 to be upgraded)
G4W3: All
G5: Beijing-Laifeng and Shijiazhuang-Hebei/Shanxi border
G0511: All (Both Google and Baidu mark a different expressway near Linfen with this number, but I don't think it's official)
G0512: None
G6: Xining-Daotanghe (Xining-Huangyuan highway to be upgraded) and Chaka-Lhasa.
G0611: All but Datong Huizu Tuzu-Kangyang.

G0613: All but Daotanghe-Gonghe/Hainan (G6 overlap).
G0615: All but maybe near Delhi/Haixi.
G7: Changping-Yanqing and Zhangjiakou-Barkol Kazakh but Hohhot-Linhe/Bayannur (G6 overlap).
G0711: All
G10: Hailar-Russia border.
G1011: None

Sorry for that long post last time. Anyway, guess where Shijiazhuang tunnel is located...

No, it's not in the capital of Hebei. It's on G65 in Shaanxi province.

It is so crazy to think of a country large enough to need four digits for national-level expressway numbering

Well, in China, probably 98% of their expressways are within the single numbering system, while in the United States, approximately 25% of their freeways are not within the Interstate Highway system.

It's also the system, China has no 3-digit expressway numbers in the national system. 4-digit numbers are spurs or loops of the 2-digit numbers. They probbaly skipped the 3-digit numbers because the national highways (non-expressways) have 3-digit numbers.
