LOL'd at the bi-lingual yellow overhead signs; they apparently performed a strict word-by-word literal translation. But OK, you get the message. I wonder what percentage of the pop. in the PRC cannot read Chinese? (resident foreigners and non-Chinese ethnic groups)

Also, the continuous lane separator line on the dual carriageway appears strange to me; in Europe I haven't seen it in other places than next to some acceleration lanes to prohibit right-lane vehicles changing into the left lane. In curvy or steep parts, however slow one has to drive, lane changing is still permitted.

Great mountain scenery though!

In North American urban centres on windy roads you see it sometimes

About this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G0511_M...ing_Expressway
It should be S73 Minjiang-Quting Expressway (It appears with this number in the Shanxi expressway list), G0511 will be the Deyang-Dujiangyan section of the Chengdu third ring.

uh I used Baidu maps as a source, assuming there are two sections numbered G0511, one in Sichuan and one in Shanxi

I didn't find anything credible suggesting any other number.

Heck, Baidu Maps is now doing like Google a few years ago: It already shows several unoped expressway stretches. Listed by province:
Anhui: G35 Qianshan-Dongzhi, G42S Yuexi-Hubei border, S17 Southeast Bengbu bypass, S32 Xuancheng-Wuwei (Xuancheng-Tongling should be G50 IMO, it makes a nonsensical detour to Wuhu), Dongzhi-Jiangxi border (marked by Baidu as Jiangxi's S20).
Fujian: G3 Jian'ou-Fuzhou (Chinese are allergic to concurrencies), G15W3 Tong'an-Fangyang, G4012 Shouning-Shekou, G76 Xiamen-Changtai, S50 Wuping-Jiangxi borderm S7211 Yong'an-Zhangzhou.
Guangdong: G45 Jiangxi border-Conghua (Thus all of G45 is now shown in Baidu), Xinhua express route in Guangzhou.
Guizhou: G56 Bijie-Liupanshui, G76 Zhijin-Bijie. On another note, they have corrected the Liupanshui-Pan county expressway from G56 to S77.
Hebei: G1N Sanhe-Tianjin border (in the exclave), G18 Laiyuan-Shanxi border, G2516 Luluo-Shanxi border.
Henan: G3E Shandong border-Shandong border (), G26 South of Fang county to G3E.
Hubei: Baidu has already put up the 2013 national numbering in previously existing expressways. G4213 Suizhou-Shuanghe, Wuhan 3rd ring in Caidian.
Jiangxi: S20 Anhui border-Pengze, S80 Fujian border-Anyuan.
Liaoning: G25 Inner Mongolia border-Kaiping.
Inner Mongolia: G7 Shanxi border-Hohhot (A bit silly East of S24 without the Shanxi segment), G18 Shanxi border-Qingshuihe, G25 Charisu-Liaoning border.
Ningxia Huizu: G22 Liupanshan-Gansu border
Shandong: G3E Liaocheng-Henan border and Henan border-Heze, Qingdao-Laixi.
Shanxi: G18 Hebei border-Lingqiu, G2516 Hebei border-Zuoquan, G59 Lin county-Lvliang (open on May 9) and Yucheng-Henan border, Lvliang Northeast bypass (labelled by Baidu as G2003).
Shanghai: Shenjiang elevated road.
Sichuan: G4202 Chengdu second ringroad (which is actually the fifth one), G5013 Chongqing border-Chengdu.
Tianjin: G1N Hebei exclave border-Ji county.
Xinjiang: G3012 Aksu-Kashgar.
Yunnan: G4216 Sichuan border-Huaping, G56 Zhen'an-Ruili, Burma border (Mangshi/Dehong Daizu Jingpozu-Wanding open on May 30).
Zhejiang: Hangzhou airport expressway, Pan'an-Yongkang.

It may possibly be part of the G15W3, which is an inland alternative route for G15 along the coast. G1503 Xiamen Ring Expressway could also be routed across other existing expressways, such as the new alignment of G76 around Zhangzhou, and the recently opened Zhangzhou southern bypass.
It is part of the G15W3 as well (Which was S35, not S30, which is changing to G2517).

The 'double peace' expressway . I can't find a number either...

There's an S35 on Google maps, unless that's not what you're looking for
