Yep, not only A10 Berlin (196km) but MKAD Moscow (190km) and M25 London (188km). All these have almost the same lenght (+/- 10km), pretty coincidence

I love the interchanges on the Beijing Ring - they look like a fusion between European interchanges and American ones. Amazing.

OMG... They sure put a lot of emphasis on aesthetics in China. I really like how the highways blend in the landscape - they definitely look better than most US "concrete rivers" IMO.

Indeed, and it also shows road infrastructure doesn't necessarily destroy the city's atmosphere.

The white building on the left near the interchange is a disaster to the whole view. It's really bad civil planning imo. They should tear it down before the interchange was built.

thanks a lot for the pics. Time and and again they make me speechless.

There is one thing, that I didnt really understand though.

you brought up the number of 5500 km of expressways per year.

Would you be so nice and tell me, if there is a further detailed study concerning that.
Do you mean 5500 km of "autobahn"/highway, with no crossings on the same leve, or does it mean 5500 km of 4-lane roads where you can go a certain speed (100-130kmh) but that Do have crossings on the same level?

the 5500km is the access controlled expressways. they built much more for normal roads. here's some data on the road construction:

2006: 340,000km new road, 4460km expressways
2007: 423,000km new road/upgrade, 8300km expressways
2008: 270,000km new road/upgrade, at least 5000km expressways (Est.)

They will install the patrols on the new highways. China has got so many people but there are less of them on Chinese and other Asian highways than in US, where I have to watch them every moment I drive on the fast lanes.
