国家高速, pronounced Guo Jia Gao Su, meaning National Expressway.

hungary's national road network is 30.000 km (motorways, main roads and local roads)

compare it to china's 60.000km motorway network...

Great pics however the red part writing is useless a color code or a specific sign form would be better IMO.

Prognosis USA vs China for 2030

Created in a moment of absolute boredom but worthwhile looking at...

Unit of axis

FYI:
The horizontal axis is time in years, the vertical is km of expressways/freeways/motorways.

nice chart but I think China's expressway growth will slow after 2012. So both US and China's expressway length are likely to keep at the 90k KM level by 2020 and onwards.

@ big-dog

That 90,000-kilometer-long plan for PRC's National Trunkline Network is old. The latest plan calls for a 120,000-kilometer network.

It seems logical that China will have a larger freeway network than the United States. The US is not very densely populated, even along the east coast, parallel freeways are often over 150 - 200 km spaced apart, that's even worse in the midwest and west coast, where parallel freeways can be hundreds of miles apart.

If China decides to give every 100,000+ city a connection to the freeway network, you're gonna get an amazing freeway network. China has like 3 times more cities above 200,000 population than the United States.

I think they will build much new roads than in the last years, to keep the economical growth and to give the unemployed persons a new job.
