China has its first "transparent concrete" solar road ready and wireless charging for electric cars


New Technology
Published on Dec 21, 2017
SUBSCRIBE 63
SUBSCRIBE SUBSCRIBED UNSUBSCRIBE
This new solar road has been installed on a two-kilometer stretch of the Jinan City Expressway, in Jinan City. One of its strengths is that it uses, for the first time, transparent concrete, which, say those responsible for the work, has almost the same structural properties as conventional asphalt.

The road is formed by three layers. The upper one is the aforementioned concrete that serves to offer sufficient friction to the vehicles and, in passing, protect the second layer. Said central layer consists of solar panels with a coating capable of supporting the weight of a medium-sized truck. Lastly, the third layer has been created to separate and protect the panels from the wet ground below, in addition to where the connections and wiring are located. it is concluded and only the connection to the electricity grid is pending, which is said to be in the future with batteries to store the generated energy. It is planned to connect the road towards the beginning of 2018 to start operations.

I came across a Chinese article that said that the end-of-the-year expressway mileage would end up around 136,000 km. That is 'only' 5,000 kilometers more than 31 December 2016.

It seems that there won't be a crazy amount of expressway openings compared to a few years ago, when they opened more than 5,000 kilometers in December alone. From 18-31 December 2015 they opened 4,800 kilometers of expressway. It seems this year won't be as crazy.

So far I've found some 450 km of expressway that will open in Guangdong tomorrow (28 December), but other provinces open only 1 or 2 sections and some none at all as far as the news reports go.

But maybe we'll be surprised. There is still large-scale construction of expressways in China, but it appears that the pace has let down somewhat compared to 2010-2015. Of course, 130,000 km is already a gigantic network, but apparently the plans go up to 180,000 kms or so.

The easternmost 95 kilometer section of G4218 Ya'an - Kargilik (Yaye) Expressway will enter 'trial operation' between Ya'an and Luding on 31 December.

This section includes the 13,459 meter long Erlangshan Tunnel, but not the Dadu River Bridge. Google Earth has just released new satellite images of the Luding area dated 5 November 2017.

G59 Hubei Expressway

The Yunbao Bridge across the Huang He on the Shanxi / Henan border. It was planned for completion 'at the end of the year', but I could not find an exact opening date. It's located south of Yuncheng, Shanxi. It is part of the G59 Hohhot - Beihai Expressway.

Yup, the Yunbao or as I know it the "Shaanxi" bridge as much like the province it lies West of Shaanzhou, Henan. I was wondering if they were building it, but now it's clear the bridge is nearing completion (if not already completed).

Recently I found the Second and Third Chengdu Ring Expressways aren't numbered G4202 and G4203 but S2A and S3A respectively. The latter has (will have, actually) a gap between Deyang and Dujiangyan where it's known as G0511, so I already knew there was no way the Third Ring would be G4203 (otherwise the Deyang-Dujiangyan section wouldn't be G0511).

Ya'an-Luding section of YaKang expressway is going to open for trial by the end of year. The 95 km section has 17 tunnels, 74 bridges, about 70% of this section. Erlangshan Tunnel is 13.4km long.

First picture is taken here where this section ends:
https://www.google.com/maps/@29.9578.../data=!3m1!1e3
which is right after Erlangshan Tunnel, I believe. It looks amazing already with (as I see) really complicated geology and those are just first 100 km of new expressway. I really look forward to follow its construction.
