No such thing as a "country road" in mainland China. The pictures that I posted are of 国道 (National Highway) and 省道 (Provincial Highway).

China National Highway 106
China National Highway 318
Hubei Provincial Highway S111
Hubei Provincial Highway S308

Find out if those posts contain mistakes please.

Just for your information, US did not have freeway until 1950s.

From my experiences, national roads seem to have wildly differing standards in different parts of the country (Inner Mongolia: good, Hebei: good and bad, Tianjin: good but always overcrowded). However, expressways always have consistant high quality, no matter where in the country one goes. However, once one gets off of it, you can find hugely different road standards in just a few kilometers, probably typical of developing countries; for example: randomly there's a 6 lane boulevard at the edge of town randomly ending and turning into a 2 lane road with no "transitions," its just 2 different road slab widths. Also you happen upon random well maintained roads in the countryside with little traffic, probably it's corruption or a test project.

I don't think so.


from my experience, National-level highways are usually not bad.so are the provincial-level highway.

However, the quality of the sub-province level highway varies much in different area.

The national highway paralleling the Jingzhang (Beijing-Zhangjiakou) Expressway is pretty bad in segments, but 95% of the national highways I've travelled on are relatively good, just the standards are different, as some places are 2 lane road, 4 lanes, or semi-expressway. It's very different in different areas.

Sub-provincial highways are all good in Tianjin municipality, same with provincial highways, but that's because it's a relatively more developed region.

I get the feeling those unpaved highways won't remain that way for long, though
