Beijing opens new airport link to ease delays
Sat Jun 21, 2008 5:56am EDT

BEIJING (Reuters) - Olympic host city Beijing opened a new highway to its international airport on Saturday, hoping to ease delays on a much-congested link ahead of the Games.

The airport had previously only been connected to downtown by one major road, which frequently slows to a snail's pace at busy times and has been known to flood during Beijing's summer thunderstorms, cutting off almost all access.

The new road leads from the recently opened Terminal Three and heads south, connecting with the ring roads surrounding the city and the highway to the nearby port city of Tianjin, the Beijing Evening News said.

A rail link to the airport is also expected to open soon. Beijing has spent billions of dollars ahead of the August 8 opening of the Games on improving infrastructure, including on a series of new subway lines.

This week authorities said they would introduce traffic restrictions for two months from July 20 to help tackle congestion and reduce pollution during the Olympics and Paralympics.

Beijing is one of the most polluted cities in the world and, with 3.5 million vehicles on the road, rapidly becoming one of the most congested.

(I might decide to post it later)

http://maps.baidu.com/ should be fairly updated, no? It should show official highway numbers and names (in Chinese though) and is similar to Google's map feature.

I just visited it, and I am really amazed: is the expressway Beijing -> Xinjiang -> Kazakhstan complete in its entirety?

I have no idea actually, but from the markings on the map it looks like there is a gap on the G312 between Jiu Quan (酒泉市) and Ha Mi (哈密市).

According to Google Earth, it's also completed. And I have an world atlas from a few years old which shows the expressway under construction.

Would be a breakthrough, from Europe to China just on motorways. First task: close the gap at Bad Oeynhausen

Forget it, I think that the little ex-USSR gap will be filled up earlier that the Bad Oeynhausen gap.

I've been searching through my house for it, can't seem to find it but once I get hold of it I'll post the national expressways map and any requests (specific provinces, cities, areas) that you want.
