like i said (i composed that list), Chinese expressways are growing VERY fast, i don't think there was ever a country which had such a huge growth rate per year.

Great highways!
I like the signage; it looks very simple, clear, and concise (and a good way to
learn Chinese characters ).

With the roads being signed so nicely in both English and Chinese, I think it is
time for China to allow foreigners to drive in the country, because as far as I
know, it is not possible currently.

Things have changed long time back. Tibet might be an exception but as far as I know, Chinese government encourages foreigners to visit all areas of China, even the remote villages.

Damn, a lot of annoying billboards along the urban motorways. Ha, I also noticed that China uses the same exit safety "splitter" as France.

I did not say that China does not encourage visitors. Right now, foreigners are
not allowed to drive a car in China without a Chinese license. However, I just
found out (from Wikitravel) that this will soon change. Nice to hear

I think that rule is for the good of the foreigners considering China's crazy driving styles.

I''m a Chinese but never "dare" to drive in China.

you know those billboards are not annoying at all in some businessmen's mind but pieces of gold.

How much does it cost per kilometers to build a highway or expressway in China? In France and in Poland, it's a between 6-7 million euros per kilometeres, so I am assuming it's much cheaper in mainland China.

Thanks

I notice it tells you the next big city without the route. That would probably confuse me. Below is what I'm used to seeing. By the way, these Chinese highways are beautiful. I can't wait to get a chance to drive on them.
