Beijing completes its first elevated highway tube

Beijing's elevated highway tube was finished on 11.20. The 1800m highway tube was built to eliminate the noise since the highway flies over across the Beijing Zoo.

My dad told me about some horror stories about how the contractors cut corners and skimped on the amount of concrete and asphalt. And given the greed of certain companies, I can see some ugly things happening to those massive infrastructures.

Most pics feature empty motorways, or motorways with almost no traffic. But it will certainly increase. I think 2x2 is not enough on long term traffic increase.

silly you, brand new highways that are full of traffic represents poor long term planning and outdated infastuctures. Highways arn't suppoesd to be "full" when it opens, traffic builds overtime.

If a place opens a new road that becomes jammed on opening day, then that place is the trouble.

I'm surprised they don't build wide grassy medians to compensate for future growth like they do here in the United States and other countries. You can do a 2x2 freeway with a wiiiiiide median instead of throwing a wall in the middle and having to reconfigure all the entrances and exits when you do want to expand. I hope the Chinese know what they're doing.

Hi! The title is true: China has the nicest highways! I love the lots of wonderful gardens (flowers!!!) at the side of the roads.

And another adventage of chinese highways: most of the roads have only 2x2 lanes.
8 or more lines are not the answer for traffic problems, but they cause them!

but a wall(and tree) between the road can make drive more safe, especially at night.

What a nonsense

That's what the greenies tell you.

A country with a 1.3 billion population just creates huge amounts of traffic. You can compare it with a village of 10.000 and New York.

Let's put it this way;

Every househould generates a know fact of the number of car-movements per day.

You really think a city of 10.000 households or a city of 1.000.000 households need the same amount of capacity? (2x2 lanes). No. If the city is larger, you need more road capacity.

China will never have the same traffic density as European or North American countries. There is just not enough oil on this planet to provide cheap fuel for the next 50 years.
