This is a mountain pass, not in the middle of the city. You're going over a mountain pass from Seattle going over the Cascade mountain range to central and East WA. The snow there in the winter is real bad, sometimes. The 3rd lane is for semi trucks/big rigs going up hill and down hill, lots of truckers go over that pass. The 4 lanes are mostly used by cars. I know 26,000 (average of 4,000 vehicles per hour) isn't lot, but it's a lot for a mountain pass, more in the summer and less in the winter. There is a lot of wildlife that get killed by lot of cars going over that pass. 130,000 cars a day, is that a mountain pass or a road thru the country? 130,000 a day is kinda a congested road with only 4 lanes, with morning and afternoon rush hours, typical for 4 lane highways.

Those chinese motorways look very europena IMO. American motorways have mostly this wide green middle division while european ones have this narrow one with shrubs and stuff. And of course the asphalt reminds me about europe.

I notice some people on here wondering why so many freeways are being built and there's not enough traffic...well the Chinese are preparing ahead of what will eventually happen..as China continues to modernize ,China will one day become the country with the largest amount of vehicles.

Beautiful but Scary....

Hey Null,
Thanks for the excellent post. It has been a while since we saw some of China's brand new and beautiful freeways. I can't help though and shudder while browsing through these and think about energy prices. After what has happened recently, I hope it only gives agencies and governments a wake up slap to the face that we need to invest more and more in improving our energy resource situation! I can only imagine that once these highways are filled to the brim with traffic how much faster the world's oil will dissappear. If we wish to continue using these freeways and the system of personal vehicles, we must invest better in alternative fuels such as hydrogen. Let me know what everyone thinks, and by all means Null, please keep posting! This is an outstanding collection of pics.

Freeways pictures of Xinjiang.
This freeway passed through the desert.
Wind-driven generators covered the roadside entirely.

They're impressive because they're new. American freeways are old, so they're not as impressive.
