Freeways in the northeastern US are just plain ugly... stomach-turningly-ugly, in most cases. Even the new and newly-rebuilt ones. Some of the bridges I saw in New York looked like they had chunks literally falling off, bolts missing, four thousand layers of gray paint over rust and corrosion, and lots & lots of duct tape. (OK, I'm kidding about the duct tape. Maybe.)
there are a lot of shitty highways here in TX and the drive is boring pretty much throughout the state except for parts of west texas.

You do have to admit, those "shitty highways" are all in Austin, not Houston. Traffic, yes, but good highways.

It's funny, in China taking a roadtrip costs as much in highway tolls as getting a cheap train ticket. I just pay a little more and get a bunk.

China's fast expanding road to development

BEIJING, April 5, 2006 (AFP) - From not one mile of expressway 18 years ago, China now has the second most extensive network in the world behind only the United States, state media said Wednesday.

China had 41,000 kilometers (25,400 miles) of expressway at the end of last year, the China Daily said.

From 2001 to 2005, China added 24,000 kilometers and there are no plans to slow the pace of road construction, the newspaper cited government officials as saying.

"Our plan for the next five years is to maintain the same speed as in the previous five years," said Dai Dongchang, director of Transport Planning and Research Institute at the Ministry of Communications.

The ambitious construction schedule is of huge importance for China's future growth prospects as at least 60 percent of its economy is facilitated by road transport, the China Daily said.

"Although transportation is no longer a bottleneck for the economy, we still need to expand its role," Dai said.

After its completion in 2010, the Chinese expressway network will connect all provincial capitals and cities with at least half a million people, the newspaper said.

People in coastal provinces will be able to reach good roads within half an hour of travel from their homes, while the time span will be within one hour for central China and two hours for the less developed western regions.

Over the longer term, the plan is to increase the total length of expressways to at least 85,000 kilometers by 2020, or just short of the current US network of about 90,000 kilometers, the newspaper said.

During the period, about two trillion yuan (250 billion dollars) will be raised for road development from overseas and private investors.

The planned expressway network will also stretch to Hong Kong and Macao, and include the proposed Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge. A feasibility study on a road link across the Taiwan Straits is also being conducted, the newspaper said.

At least three major expressways will be built to link China's major economic hubs such as the Pearl River Delta, the Yangtze River Delta and the Bohai Sea Rim areas before 2020.

these roads look really great, but i wonder if they could have saved money on the fancy designs and still achieved the same effectiveness ...

An expressway is just opened in Yunnan, southwestern China


Celebration of local Dai minority. Dai people is related to some other people in SE Asia, such as Thai, and share some holidays such as water splashing festival (April 13 to 16 of every year).

目前,全世界已有80多个国家和地区拥有高速公路,通车总里程超过了23万公里。

  第一名是美国,目前高速公路总长度为8.8万公里,已完成以州际为核心的高速公路网,其总里程约占世界高速公路总里程的一半,连接了所有5万人以上的城镇。

  第二名是中国,目前突破了3万高速公路。1988年10月31日,上海至嘉定18.5公里高速公路建成通车,使中国大陆有了高速公路。此后17年间,我国高速公路建设突飞猛进:1999年突破1万公里,跃居世界第四位;2000年达到1.6万公里,跃居世界第三;2001年达到1.9万公里,跃居世界第二;2004年8月底突破了3万公里,比世界第三的加拿大多出近一倍。

  第三名是加拿大,共修建了1.65万公里高速公路,而且不征收车辆通行费,所以路上也没有收费站、检查站。

  第四名是德国,拥有1.1万公里高速公路,其中波恩至科隆高速公路是世界上第一条高速公路,建于1932年。

  第五名是法国,目前拥有1万公里高速路,由于采取了大量吸收民间投资的方法,有力地推动了高速公路的建设速度。

what "car density" is the chinese government assuming for the future?
Those roads look great---but if you have the same number of "cars per capita" as is europe, those roads should not have 2 lanes in each direction, but 8....

or will there always be only a small percentage of chinese people having a car in the future?

Please don't post Chinese articles in this thread. And you information is far out of date. By 2005, Chinese expressway length has exceeded 41,000km.

我国高速公路总里程达4.1万公里——2010年总里程达到6.5万公里,国家高速公路网骨架将初步形成

http://www.moc.gov.cn/05news/0601/t20060117_29988.htm
  
记者从全国交通工作会上获悉,“十一五”期间,我国高速公路建设仍将“高速”进行,五年间,将新建高速公路2.4万公里以上,至2010年,总里程将达到6.5万公里。届时,国家高速公路网骨架将基本形成。
“十五”期间,我国共建成高速公路2.47万公里,是“八五”和“九五”建成高速公路总和的1.5倍,先后跃上了2万公里、3万公里、4万公里三个大台阶,达到4.1万公里,继续稳居世界第二。按《国家高速公路网规划》,我国将用30年左右的时间完成包括7条首都放射线、9条南北纵向线和18条东西横向线共8.5万公里的国家高速公路网。2005年,全国新增高速公路6700公里,“两纵两横三个重要路段”全部建成,山东、广东两省高速公路突破3000公里,江苏、河南、河北三省高速公路突破2000公里,另有14个省、区高速公路突破1000公里。
高速公路已成为经济社会发展的重要助推器,不仅显著提高了运输能力,降低了运输成本,增强了运输安全性,节约了国土资源,而且在改善投资环境、优化产业布局、促进资源开发利用、提高国家经济的机动性、增强国家竞争力、以及保障国防安全等方面,发挥着越来越重要的作用。
目前我国的高速公路与一些发达国家相比,在发展质量、发挥规模效益等方面均存在着差距。交通部部长李盛霖表示,交通部将进一步健全完善已经形成的多元化投融资机制,不断推进高速公路发展。同时切实研究解决高速公路管理、特许经营、滚动发展等问题,理顺管理体制,促进高速公路健康发展。到“十一五”期末,基本形成国家高速公路网骨架,“五纵七横”国道主干线和西部开发省际通道全部建成。其中,东部地区基本形成高速公路网;长江三角洲、珠江三角洲和京津冀地区形成较完善的城际高速公路网;中部地区承东启西、连南接北的高速公路通道基本贯通。
据透露,2006年我国全年将建成高速公路约5000公里。   《中国交通报》讯(胡士祥)
