It'll be cool if they built a freeway all the way to Hainan Island with a huge suspension bridge.

China has 41,000 km expressways (access controlled, 4+ lanes) built by the end of 2005, which is close to half of USA's. It built 5000km new expressways in 2005, and it has been building around 5000km new expressways annually for at least 4, 5 years in a row now.

It's the same in Guangzhou. Looks like even with sophisticated subway system in place, there will still be huge traffic jams in the big cities due to the rise of the middle class wanting cars as social symbol, and inherant poor road design and planning.

But there's an easy solution: raise the price of gasoline in gas stations, or increase license fee or levy a tax when buying vehicles.

Roads in Inner Mongolia. Yes, they are not good, but I like the roadside view.
