I don't like how incomplete is the network in Guangdong. Apart from the above mentioned G45, work is ongoing on S29 South of Zengcheng, G94 between Zengcheng and Sihui and G35 between the Jiangxi border and Meizhou (G35 and G94 up to the Tropic of Cancer are reported to be U/C, the rest appear U/C in Google Maps satellite imagery).

I don't like that most of Jiangxi has ancient imagery . I've been able to find only a S46 extension from Fuzhou (Fǔzhōu, not Fúzhōu in Fujian, pulling a Shaanxi would result in Fuujou vs Fwujou) to Jinxi. G60N in that province is already complete, but it still U/C in western Zhejiang.

I love how they built a bridge along the mountain side rather than blast rock and try to flatten a section of mountain. In the US it seems like they would have blasted rock out of the side of the mountain to create the roadway. A bridge like this seems to be much less disruptive to nature.

much more expensive to construct and maintain as well. Generally in the US a highway wouldn't even be constructed on such a hillside, especially today with modern environmental protections.

No,this is the one of the most popular routes for the cyclists in China.If it's a expressway,it's not allowed to access for the bicyclists.

Some Western Guizhou love . I've found all those expressways U/C:
G56 Bijie-Liupanshui (Which is consistent with my data) and G76 Guiyang-Bijie (and on to the Sichuan border, already known). The Xiarong has absorbed S85 Duyun-Zhijin (Duzhi) expressway onto its route, G76 previously ran concurrent with G75 and G60 into Guiyang and I believe it was planned to run along G321.
S55 Zhijin-Puding (near Anshun). This is the Chishui (Sichuan)-Wangmo (Chiwang) expressway, the two sections on Google Maps show it as Qianzhi and [Anshun] Ring expressways. It appears that it's U/C North of Qianxi, but the imagery stops just North of the end of the expressway. But enough to leak that S82 Qianxi-Dafang expressway is U/C.
And finally I got to correct Baidu: The expressway that runs from South of Liupanshui to Pan county, labelled by Baidu as G56 is... not part of the Hangrui . Instead, it is part of S77 Weining-Xingyi (Weixing) expressway.

From time to time we get new imagery somewhere else and this enables me to discover new expressways U/C. For example, the G5 West of Shijiazhuang to the Shanxi border, which was already known to be U/C, is now visible. New findings include Shanxi's S45 from Yu county up to S46 and the new G65 in Shaanxi as far North as Huanglin. The latter may be U/C up to G22, and what is sure is that this realignment will rejoin the original expressway at Yan'an.

While I'm finding new expressways U/C (Last Anhui piece of G35, G7011 in Gansu, G1816 also in Southern Gansu, G1N through Tianjin, and so on), I thought I should give another funny expressway name award. After Guangxi Zhuangzu's Nanning-Beihai a.k.a. North-South expressway (Now part of G75) and G109 Beijing-Lanzhou expressway that will stop just outside Beijing, the winner is the Beijing-Guangzhou 'expressway' (More accurately translated as 'express route') that only exists in downtown Zhengzhou. Such a route already exists as the Beijing-Hong Kong-Macau (Jinggang'ao) expressway (G4).

[InKunming--Kunming] The first expressway connecting China and Vietnam, Hanoi- Lao Cai Expressway, was officially opened to traffic on September 21, 2014. An open ceremony was held in Lao Cai in Vietnam on that day.

Its openness also marked that the capital city of Southwest China’s Yunnan Province Kunming and the capital of Vietnam Hanoi was connected by expressway in the whole course, which stretches over a length of 650 kilometers. Henceforth, the driving time from Hanoi to Lao Cai was shortened from 11 hours to 3 hours, and the driving time between Kunming and Hanoi was shortened to 8 hours.

Hanoi-Lao Cai Expressway was started construction from 2009, with an investment of 1.46 billion U.S. dollars. It is the first international expressway connecting Vietnam and China, as well as the expressway which has the longest mileage and the biggest investment in Vietnam.

[InKunming--China] A 940-km expressway ring surrounding Beijing will be completed by 2016 to reduce pollution of vehicles passing through the Chinese capital and boost regional development.

The integration of transport infrastructure is a priority for coordinated development of Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei, said a Beijing transport official.

The big outer ring has about 850 km in Hebei Province. It includes several expressways, such as the one linking Zhangjiakou and Zhuozhou cities and the Zhangjiakou-Chengde expressway in Hebei, and another linking Zhuozhou and Miyun County in Beijing.

Some sections of the ring have been completed while others are under construction, according to Beijing and Hebei officials.

By 2020, a one-hour travel will be realized between cities surrounding Beijing and Tianjin and the two cities, and adjacent cities in the region, said Gao Jinhao, head of the Hebei Transport Department

As I pointed out on the Motorway openings thread, G4W3 is now in operation. This expressway parallels G4 in Guangdong from the Hunan border to Guangzhou. It runs along the Wu and North River valleys, therefore at a lower elevation than G4 does (400 meters at most along G4W3, while G4 reaches 800 meters). A fun fact is that the expressway splits from G4 on the right side, but shortly crosses it and runs East of the Jinggang'ao until Shaoguan.

There are many tourist interests along the new expressway. With opening of Guangle Expressway the total expressway mileage of Guangdong province surpasses 6000km.

Guangzhou - Lechang Expressway in full. Apparently it's both numbered S1 and G4W3.

It seems that 774 kilometers of expressway opened to traffic in the past 5 days. Just in time for the national holiday.

Generally holiday eves are good time for openings. But nothing can compare to the week before new year when mass number of openings happen. Apparently there are commitments in projects to top management in terms of the opening year.
