Is there an updated map of the Chinese 高速 (Gaosu Gonglu aka expressways)?

In urban areas, I think they prefer an extra lane over a shoulder. This is a choice they made when building new freeways in an existing urban landscape with little space. In most rural expressways pictures, I do see emergency lanes/shoulders.

Didnt see any mention of the first traffic jam in August in this thread... so anyway...the traffic jam has returned.

Perhaps this is also relevant for the 'longest traffic jams' thread??


Epic 120km China traffic jam returns
AFP September 02, 2010 8:38PM
http://www.news.com.au/breaking-news...-1225913500463

A HUGE traffic snarl stretching at least 120km reappeared in northern China today, with thousands of cargo trucks stuck in a bottleneck.

State television broadcast images of a long line of mostly cargo trucks inching slowly through Inner Mongolia on a major highway leading towards Beijing that has come to symbolise China's traffic gridlock problem.

"You could say the highway has become a big parking lot," a CCTV reporter at the scene said, estimating the number of vehicles stuck in the congestion at more than 10,000.

The stretch of highway linking Inner Mongolia and the northern province of Hebei with Beijing is among the nation's busiest.

Major snarls have materialised this year, blamed on highway maintenance projects and accidents.

Traffic slowed to a snail's pace in June and July for nearly a month, according to earlier press reports.

In August, state media said some drivers were stuck in a huge traffic jam on the route for nine days.

The traffic subsequently cleared but has worsened again due to accidents and traffic restrictions imposed by authorities, CCTV said.

China has embarked in recent years on a huge expansion of its national road system, but the volume of traffic periodically overwhelms the grid.

According to government data, Beijing is on track to have five million cars on its roads by year's end. The four-million mark was passed in December.

The article is a bit old but exciting

China plans to build 11,049km expressway in 2010

The same construction speed will extend to year 2011~2012, by planning there're still 50,277km new expressway to build by 2013

I-90 6 lane freeway over snoquailimie pass in Washington state gets average of 26,000 cars a day, one of the busiest mountain pass in the US.
China has many cars now

Do you mean there will be 50000km of new expressways by 2013? Is that really possible? I mean even in China that sounds a bit too much.

That sounds about right... the original plan was to continue at about 5000km per year.

However, they approved all the projects from 2010-2020 just after the financial crisis hit in 2008. And voila, they all get completed sometime between 2011-2013.
