This is a very confusing statement. Some motorways in Europe are also not up to the contemporary standards. For instance most motorways in UK are quite bumpy with uneven surface while some old autobahnen in Germany have no hard shoulder...
The new motorways are of course state of the art no matter where they are. So they are, I believe, in China and the quality standard is probably no different from the new motorways in EU.

I have never come across a low quality motorway in China (regular roads are another story), the oldest is only 20 years old so there hasn't been much time for the materials to deteriorate

Go to the Yangtze estury and you'll soon have a different opinion . Due to the geology there's always a slight height difference between bridges and roads - one of the newish expressways near Ningbo I travelled on was simply appauling. There's a well known phrase '上海到,过桥跳'.

They coud've built bridges, like in Tokyo or Osaka on existing roads.

Provided that there were existing roads forming an exact ring without sudden turns or bends around Beijing.

In any case, Chinese cities are hardly comparable to Tokyo or Osaka since the highways in the former have all been built in the last 20 years-- most in the last 10 years, when the cities have already expanded a lot.

The first expressway in Tokyo opened somewhere in the 1960's, but most of them in the 70's, 80's, 90's en 2000's.

Tokyo grew in the 60s as fast as Peking grows now.

The proper name for the city is Beijing, not Peking. It's how the locals pronounce the city name, and is the internationally recognized name.
