Nantong-Rudong expressway? Baidu marks it as 'Tongyang' (i.e. Nantong-Yangkou) expressway. And it's neither Nantong-Rudong nor Nantong-Yangkou, but Nantong-Wuxi expressway (And thus S19), which is mostly built in the right bank of the Yangtze. This indicates a bridge across the Yangtze between the existing Suzhou-Nantong and Jiangyin bridges is in the plans.

Yangkou is north of Nantong. The new expressway runs northeast (it is visible on Google Earth). Unless it turns northwest after Rudong. A direct extension to S19 to Wuxi seems weird, they would either have it run concurrent with G40, or build it right through Nantong. The expressway is also not located between Wuxi and Nantong.

Perhaps it's one of those 'port expressways'.

I knew Tencent Street View had more coverage than Baidu's. But still, it's far from covering the whole country.

Chinese Wikipedia has a map of Jiangsu expressways, and the line that represents this expressway is joined with existing S19 in the other side of the Yangtze, that's why I believe this is part of the Nantong-Wuxi expressway.

They are adding more and more areas all the time, China's big, so it will take a while until the whole country is covered. Just look at Europe in Google street view, it's also not fully covered.

Most areas in Europe that aren't covered by Google Streetview are areas that have chosen to not allow publishing of those imagery (with the excuse of privacyissues). This is the case for Germany, Austria and also used to be the case for Luxembourg, but they managed to work around that somehow since there's imagery there now. Don't know about Ukraine, Moldova, Belarus and most countries in former Jugoslavia. Might be the same reason.

The standard of driving in that vid is pure shite. Are mirrors and indicators illegal in China???

The road does not look worn out....do you mean in future some time????

It says on Chinese it's 166 km to the city districts since the location was in the counties of Beijing. Beijing municipality is quite big as with almost all city municipalities in China and includes a lot of countryside.

No, motorway is fairly new, just few years old but it looks already pretty old (not that it feels like it when driving, just looks like that) or better said weathered caused by subtropical weather and invasive plant foilage.

Even in China they don't build new expressways in one year, but it may have been an upgrade of that four-lane G324.
First of all, it is marked in Baidu Maps? Because any expressway should be marked there in order to be sure it has opened . I'll check tomorrow, as I'm on my cellphone.

Edit: Nope, it's not in Baidu, so no Shantou-Kunming expressway between Luliang and Shilin yet

A 66 kilometer segment of the G76 Xiarong Expressway opened to traffic in Guizhou, from G60 west of Guiyang to near Zhijin. As many of you may know, Guizhou has extremely rugged terrain, and this new expressway includes the 219 meter high Sanchahe Bridge

The next segment to Nayong is under construction and features another very high bridge. The stretch near Nayong opened to traffic on 10 January 2015 (13 km).
This used to be S85, until the 2013 plan came out and G76 absorbed all of it. I've seen recently, don't remember where, a map of all planned expressways in Guizhou. Anyway, I'm awaiting for the opening of a G56 section near Liupanshui but already in Yunnan, it includes the Puli bridge which I've read it will stand a bit higher than Sidu River bridge on G50, and thus claiming the world record!

I forgot about the nearby Duge bridge over the North Pan river, which will be even higher at 560 meters. Also the Taku bridge over the Jinsha Yangtze river on the G4216 will surpass the Puli one in height.

And the Guizhou planned expressways map is here.

A new alignment of G4 'Jinggang'ao Expressway' opened to traffic on 21 December 2014. It is an 81 kilometer bypass of Shijuazhuang in Hebei province. It runs 17 kilometers east of the original G4.

According to Baidu Maps, the old G4 is numbered S9902.

Thank you for the information, I remember, two months ago I asked if anyone knew this, as I am adding detailed information on Chinese Expressways in English Wiki (Currently working on G5)
I'll update it as fast as I can

While working on G5, I ran into some brilliant pictures of G5 in Shanxi, in Lingshi area

Great! Just a couple things: You wrote the exit list for G1N in the wrong way, and the whole G4W3 has been open for a few months now (You have marked it as under construction).

But... I'm suspecting about who's updating the Wikipedia (Unless it was a voluntary username change).

Aren't East-west expressway exits numbered East to West?
And about G4w3 you are right, and it's not numbered S1 anymore.
I think I used Google maps for it, and it's not updated yet, I'll update it using qq map soon
thanks

(And "Nima Farid" is my account on wiki)


Update: G4 update, S9902 Xinyuan Epxressway addition and G4w3 correction are done now, thanks Chris and CNGL for your helps

It is a radial out of Beijing (Or more exactly, an alternate route), so it will start in Beijing. It's also implied by its name: Beijing-Qinhuangdao expressway, as it stands now it appears to be Qinhuangdao-Beijing expressway.
