Fixed. If a division is named '#xian', it can be translated into '# county'.

And... Chris, do have any idea about the G1N exit numbering order? East-West or Beijing-Outbound?

Considering the other radial expressways of Beijing, outbound numbering seems to make most sense. But I can't confirm.

Hainan - Yushu Expressway

The Hainan - Yushu Expressway opened to traffic in Qinghai Province on 18 December 2014. It is 636 kilometers long, making it by far the world's largest single motorway opening in history.

However, it is also the world's highest motorway by a considerable margin. It tops out at 4,824 meters altitude at Bayan Har Pass, not far from the Sichuan border. This blows away the previous record of the La Paz - El Alto Motorway in Bolivia at 4,100 meters. It also contains the world's highest motorway tunnels at circa 4,350 meters.

The expressway runs through very remote and barren terrain, but its mountain passes are relatively easy, albeit very high. There are a half dozen mountain passes in excess of 4,100 meters altitude. Most of these are tunneled by twin-tube tunnels, the highest of which is at circa 4,350 meters altitude. The highest pass, Bayan Har, is not tunneled.

Most of the expressway was built by twinning the existing G214. Unfavorable alignments are bypassed, and so are the (very few) villages along the route. Most passes are tunneled through.

Some Google Earth imagery of this expressway.

1. A tunnel at 4,250 meters altitude


2. A bypass around one of the few villages along the route at 4,450 meters altitude.


3. Bayan Har Pass at the edge of the available imagery. It is at 4,824 meters altitude, the highest point.


4. This is the highest tunnel at circa 4,350 meters altitude.


5. The northernmost tunnel at 3,800 meters altitude.

Are you sure this long (and high!) section of the G0613 Xining-Lijiang expressway opened three months ago? Because the mostly up-to-date Baidu Maps doesn't show it yet, and thus it isn't sure this has actually been put into operation.

It says so in the article. It is indeed not in Baidu Maps. But it's not Baidu Almighty.

Other news source says it is 90% open, from my understanding, it is not yet formally opened like others expressway openings. Some tunnels on the line have not yet completed.

Some expressways in China also go into some kind of trial operation.

It says “高速化公路” (“high-speed-ized” road) not “高速公路” (expressway or motorway), so it is not a expressway/motorway.

I still think that China (uniquely) needs two threads in this forum....one just for the mountain projects as they are simply unbelieveable on a global scale.

So that 'hua' messes up the 'gaosu gonglu' (Lit. High-speed highway) . Anyway, those expressways in remote areas are of lower standard than most ones.

Looks like an amazing place to do some mountain racing. Hope this road become a stage in racing games.

A few of my videos from central Shanghai back at the end of last year showing off the extent of the road infrastructure.

Here is one of the Yan'an Elevated Road near the Shanghai home of Mao Zedong.







And one of the amazing interchange between Yan'an Elevated Road and the South-North Elevated Road.
