It's not weirdly numbered, it's numbered like a regular road . Expressways are supossed to have two or four digits, never three as those are reserved for regular roads. I believe this expressway (The continuation of G3016 beyong Gulja/Yining) will receive a Sxx designation soon.

Why not just sticking with G3016 past Ghulja?

Chinamxura? I know that as Qingshuihe . Anyway, I used to call the nearby border crossing by its pinyin name Huo'erguosi before switching to Jorgos (this translliteration being the pronunciation as in my mother language Spanish ) or alternatively 'Faraway' as in G30 Lianyungang-'Faraway' expressway.

LOL well it's an officially bilingual province, so let's respect our different ways of naming places. I was just reading off whatever's written on the sign in Uyghur Turki :cheers"
And from my point of view, it would be G30 Khorgas-Faraway Expressway

G3014 Kuytun-Altay Expressway in XUAR

I can't see all the details, but it looks like it says "Ulungur Daryasi chong kovroki" (Ulungur River great bridge)

This one says "Algilit Tighy Tunili" (Argilit Edge tunnel)

Sign towards Chochak

It indeed is , the S60 Hepu-Napo expressway. There is another section between Qinzhou and Chaozhong, already on Google Maps.

Strange, this was already on Baidu Maps since early October. For some reason it is labelled as S10, this is actually the S52 Wuxuan-Pingguo expressway, which will extend beyond G75. OTOH, the Eastern terminus (at S31, now G7212) is already in place.

Say hello to G3011 Liuyuan (sic.)-Golmud expressway . The planning map already had G69 running past Bose (deprecated name for Baise) to the Vietnam border.

CrystalBaidu at work . Here are some of the upcoming openings:
G1816 Linxia Huizu-Gannan Zangzu (Gansu)
G55 Hunan border-Huaiji (Guangdong). I thought it would connect with G4W2 near Liannan Yaozu, but it won't do so...
S40 Wuzhou-Pingnan (Guangxi Zhuangzu)
G59 Shiyan-Fang county, G4213 Baokang-Shaanxi border, G6911 Xuan'en-Hunan border, S63 Gucheng-Baokang, and S79 Xuan'en-Chongqing border (Hubei)
G3012 Aksu-Kashgar (Xinjiang Uyghur)

By the way, it seems Google is catching up. Now it's up to May (Except for a couple sections in Shanxi and Inner Mongolia...).

Some factoids about China's highways (as of 2013).

* there are 156,500 kilometers of toll roads overall
* there are 100,400 kilometers of tolled expressways
* the toll revenue is 365 billion yuan ($ 58.6 billion)
* the annual expenses on toll roads are 431 billion yuan ($ 69.2 billion)
* the toll roads have an annual loss of 66 billion yuan ($ 10.6 billion)
* the average cost to construct 1 kilometer of expressway is 90.8 million yuan ($ 14.6 million)

The last part of the G42 Hurong Expressway opened to traffic on December 27. This is likely the missing link in western Hubei. Of course, it was already possible to drive from Shanghai to Chengdu via G50.

Now that the great expressway ForteTwo likes is complete, I'm looking toward the completion of the Jinan-Guangzhou expressway, the G35. It still has gaps in Southern Anhui and Northeastern Guangdong, both U/C AFAIK (The Anhui one is sure).

Uhm, today Baidu Maps is running smoothly. More upcoming openings, all in Guizhou: S35 Fuquan-Weng'an, S70 just West of Kaili/Qiangdongnan Miaozu Dongzu, and S84 East of Sansui (Strangely it doesn't connect to G60). The route of S70, also known as Yuqing-Anlong expressway, is interesting: It will form an arc across Eastern and Southern Guizhou, and despite being an East-West route it will run North-South in its Easternmost part.

Jiangxi

* ping CNGL

https://translate.googleusercontent....OU7bDnnNFIWm9g

5 expressways opened to traffic in Jiangxi on 26 December. This is not yet on the famous highway map.

* Xunxin Expressway (S80): Anyuan - G45 south of Xinfeng: 51 km
* Duchang - Jiujiang Expressway (S?): first 14 km between Jiujiang Ring Expressway and G45
* Jiujiang Ring Expressway (S?): 47 km from Duchang - Jiujiang Expressway to G56. Runs east of the mountains near Jiujiang.
* Shanglian Expressway (S89): Hunan border to G60 at Pingxiang: 35 km

And another expressway I can't make quite out, seems to be the same as S89.

What do you say?

They aren't in Baidu Maps either. I'm now having troubles attempting to reach any Chinese site, might be the Great Firewall working in the wrong way. Anyway, the Duchang-Jiujiang expressway is S22.

Edit: Damnit, I've reached Baidu now, and it shows those expressways. The Jiujiang Ring expressway is labelled S37 there.
Edit2: The expressway you have as S80 is actually S82 Xunwu-Quannan expressway . Still figuring out the fifth...
Edit3: Found it! Wanzai-Yichun expressway, 35 km. It's East of S89 (Which is not yet in Baidu Maps).

China's 2014 transport infrastructure investment to hit 2.5 trl yuan

Dec 28,2014

BEIJING, Dec. 28 (Xinhua) -- Fixed asset investment on China's transport infrastructure, including roads, railways, airports and waterways, are expected to hit 2.5 trillion yuan (409 billion U.S. dollars)this year, Minister of Transport Yang Chuantang said on Sunday.

Transport authorities have played an important role in the nation's efforts to stabilize economic growth by speeding up investment on infrastructure construction, Yang said at a national transport work conference held in Beijing.

Yang said the investment this year is expected to increase roads by 93,800 kilometers, including 7,450 km expressways. Meanwhile, 230,000 km countryside roads are to be renovated in the year.

Total investment on railways are to hit 800 billion yuan this year, which has increased railway mileage by 8,000 km, Yang said.

Eight new airports have been built, while 631 berths are built or reinforced with the investment this year.

Yang predicted that the total passenger and freight volumes via the nation's transport system including roads, railways, airports and waterways will increase 3.7 percent and 7.2 percent year on year, respectively.
There are 7450km of new expressways built in 2014 in China.

The data a year ago

Guangdong

Six expressways opened to traffic in Guangdong according to this article.

https://translate.googleusercontent....BRha-Ti8tUtiOQ

However, I only found 4 opened expressways;

* G55 Erguang Expressway (Huaiji - Hunan border)
* G94 Zhusanjiao Expressway (G55 to G45/G4W3 northwest of Guangzhou)
* S5 Guangming Expressway (S43 to G15 in southern Guangzhou/Foshan)
* S12 Meilong Expressway (Dabu -Fujian border)

The other expressways mentioned are less clear to me. One seems just like the same as S12 from Dabu to Fujian, the other seems to be G78 near Shantou, but that missing link to G15 already opened to traffic in January 2014.

Actually what opened in January was the S233 to X054 section, today they have opened the remainder to G15. Anyway, most of G78 across Guangdong is still missing. I'm going to unveil that sixth expressway now, like I did in Jiangxi...

I see. Google Earth shows that part under construction on July 2014 imagery, so it couldn't have opened in January indeed.
