60 is a very low speed limit for a road that size. In Denmark the lowest speed limit on motorways is 90.

I guess that's because it's a freeway in the city.

Yeah, but still, 90 km/h would make more sense.

No. China always uses the metric system for infrastructure.

I was recently driving in Germany. In some areas there are limits of 80km/h in autobahns (usually near cities) but most would still drive at 120-140km/h. I really doubt such 'speed limits' are enforced anywhere.

when? The majority of Chinese national roads are in good condition, and expressways are at an always high standard. Though of course there are still some major improvements to make.

Well, it saves a lot of time, because they close down the entire intersection for all traffic it seems...

They are building a new cyclist tunnel under a major highway in my city, which takes over a year to build, just because traffic keeps running on the roads. The widening of that road here from 4 to 6 lanes takes like 4 - 5 years for only 2 km.
