Just hope they can maintain the quality of construction, even when forced to meet certain dates of opening.

Yup. Last year I went down with the sheer amount of both expressway and metro openings. 2,000 km of expressways and 250 km of metro opened in the last week of 2013. But luckily there's the calm after the storm: the first four months of 2014 didn't see any openings.

I dispute the last claim is true.

Hi guys. Just wanna ask what are the name of these expressways / bridges / or especifically exact location of the expressway or bridge in the photo below. I just found it in my computer but I don't know what are these names of the expressways because these are old photos btw (I save it on the year 2007, that's quite old already). Thanks!

A new update to Google Maps has put up some of the numbering of the 2013 expressway plan. This marked the first appearing of the following designations: G2516, G3017, G4215, G4216, G50S, G5012, G5013, G5515, G69, G7611, G95 (G1N was already there in the last update).

Along with that, the Wikipedia article has been expanded, and now includes almost every damn provincial expressway (Hebei, Sichuan, Tibet and possibly a couple others are still incomplete). Of note is that the ordering is a bit different of what I use: The Wikipedia goes Hebei-Heilongjiang-Henan and Shaanxi-Shandong-Shanghai-Shanxi while I go more with hanzi and thus Hebei-Henan-Heilongjiang and Shandong-both Shanxies-Shanghai. This list includes among others the Jilin's S10 Tonghua-Shenzhen (sic) expressway (It is Shenyang, not Shenzhen, they are different characters) and the Xinjiang's S12 Khunjerab expressway (Really they are going to build THAT? First was the G4218 Xinzang expressway and now this, China keeps surprising me). And I wish good luck to Fujian building both S1513 and S1515 to Jinmen (An island controlled by Taiwan).

China aims to sooth transport bottlenecks by 2020

BEIJING, Oct 4 (Reuters) - China aims to ease transport bottlenecks which are affecting economic development by 2020 with a plan announced on Saturday to tackle issues such as excessive road tolls and poor connectivity and to ensure the smoother flow of goods.

Despite billions of dollars being invested in recent years on roads, railways and ports, China's rapid economic growth has meant that transport facilities still easily clog up, raising the cost of doing business.

Last year, logistics costs made up 18 percent of gross domestic product (GDP), roughly double that of the developed world and higher even than Brazil or India, with a fractured industry made up of too many small players and lack of modern warehousing, the central government said in a statement on its website.

"Infrastructure is comparatively backward and cannot satisfy the demands of the development of modern logistics," it said, outlining a plan running to 2020 to deal with the problem.

Previously announced steps such as trying to rein in excessive tolls and penalties have failed to be fully effective, affecting the movement of goods within the country, the government added.

Logistics companies will be encouraged to merge to form larger entities, there will be better integration between railways and ports and more facilities will be built to improve the transport of coal and grains and resolve "chokeholds", the statement said.

The government will also encourage the building of oil and LNG tankers and ports which can handle imports of iron ore and other minerals, it added.

The plan, which did not mention any investment figures, comes as the government is pushing through a new round of reforms aimed at bolstering a slowing economy, including trying to cut red tape, but avoiding massive spending rises.

There are some guidelines for posting news:

Your news quote should look like this:

Anyway, even though the Hebei list on Wikipedia is still incomplete, it already states that the Xuanhua-Datong expressway is S32. They could have numbered it S30 to match Shanxi's number. Google Maps gives out a few other numbers, including a duplicate S52 (Which really is G1812). And the closure for widening has resulted in G4 vanishing from that map between Gaobeidian and Xinle.

A close look reveals that the expressway opening festival which took place by the end of last year is now in Google Maps. Since so 'few' expressways have opened since then, we can say Google Maps is now more up to date than ever.

Anyway, some time ago I discovered that a 2x4, G4 Shijiazhuang bypass is U/C. And newly updated imagery has allowed me to find the Western arc of the damn freaking huge Chongqing ultra outer space beltway U/C, approximately from G93 right at the Sichuan border to North of G5013, and I assume up to G93 again. I believe North of G85 it is part of G8515.

Some provinces seem to have double numbering and naming of expressways.

I've got to correct some expressway numbers that are incorrect in Google Maps (And maybe Baidu too):
'S52' Chengde-Qinghuandao: S11. Google has labelled Beijing's S11 (Which only extends out to G4501) all the way to Chengde, with the standalone section between G45 and G25 actually numbered S2501. The correct S52 is the one that is becoming G1812. Most other expressways in Hebei have been numbered.
'G0511' near Linfen in Shanxi: S73. G0511 is actually the Deyang-Dujiangyan section of the Chengdu mega ringroad.
'G1801' Shuozhou link: S38. This one was obviously incorrect: Not a ringroad, doesn't connect to G18 and not part of the national network.
