I asked before but I would love to see a dedicated thread just for Chinas Mountain Motorways alone. China opened around 1000km on the Tibetan Plateau alone last year, these are all above 4000m, and a lot of the work to get from the plains up to 4000m like in Western Sichuan or in Yunnan or Qinghai is simply breathtaking and will never be repeated anywhere else in the world.

So any chance of a thread for Sichuan/Yunnan/Qinghai and Tibet provinces only???? Please??

Meanwhile on the flat bit of China.

The important north south G107 expressway ( Beijing-Shenzen) is to get a new alignment where it crosses the Yellow (Yalu) River. My understanding is that the Guandu Yellow River Bridge is all elevated on piers rather than embankments and 32km long in total, to open next year.

G107 is a trunk road, the expressway is numbered G4. It appears like a similar bypass as G4 at Shijiazhuang.

I took a closer look at it doesn't appear to be a G4 bypass, but a route that goes slightly southeast to Zhoukou.

Here is the G4 / G30 interchange at Zhengzhou. The longest ramps are 2 kilometers long! Both expressways have eight lanes.
