I doubt there will be any "riad[road] pirates" if the manner that China deals with sea pirates in the South China seas is any indication. The sea pirates were executed when they were caught--case closed.

I've never heard road pirates on Chinese highways. But where did you get the news of execution of South China Seas pirates? are you one of them to get the insider news or its just propaganda ? Any source?

I've heard of many stories of road pirates in China, maybe it doesn't happen as much in Beijing/Shanghai area, but I've heard stories of pirates between Xi'an-Hanzhong. I've heard travelling in Yunnan is also relatively dangerous, and I'd imagine it would be even easier to hijack in places like Xinjiang, Inner Mongolia.

some years ago there are some in rural areas but they don't work on highways (otherwise it's one of the most dangerous jobs). very few mentioned on news recently.

Some link from the Chinese Infrastructure Subforum (the thread title was in English, that's how I got there ) :

There are some nice photos from a highway crossing the loess plateau or something like that.

I don't believe piracy is an issue with China's freeways. Formost being the fact that they're tolled and sealed off. And the second being the very likelines of being ran over.

I have to admit that i am not a fan of massive highways or systems, however after looking through the many pictures on this thread, and several threads like this, i am a fan of chinese highways. They have seemed to have managed to do some interesting terraforming, and not to mention the breathtaking garden and landscaping that they put into this projects. heck, it almost makes you want to live nearby to them, sure beats looking at another building for a view.

More and more i like chinese architecture and the way they do things!

Read about it on a Xinhua link (either www.china.org.cn or www.chinadaily), and this story was also mentioned on a BBC/National Geographic program that examined sea pirates. I like to read many sources on the web--and it does not hurt that I subscribe to about 300 television channels.

Why are there signs which don't allow pedestrians and cyclists to enter expressway? Isn't that obvious since it's expressway?
