Agree 100%. The scale of Chinese infrastructure constructions is truly huge and dwarves that any other country by long distance. Many are these projects are built in very challenging environments and difficult terrains.

What we are seeing here at times are just the usual ignorant and prejudices from people with misconceived idea of China. However, I do concede that China still has much to learn in regards to infrastructure maintenance.

Are the pillars for elevated highways normally designed to withstand impacts or earthquakes?

Where are the widest highways in China and how wide are they? Any 6x6+?

I believe he was brainwashed by western media's day-by-day day-after-day propaganda. I am sorry to use the word "brainwashed", but it is true...

Shen-Da Expressway only has 4+4 lanes. 4+4 is sort of a standard for many expressways in China.

There is a section in Fuzhou where the airport expressway joins the city ring road, and that has 6+6 lanes. But that does not apply to the entire expressway.

The claimed widest expressway in China is Shuiguan Expressway in Shenzhen, which has 5+5 lanes. It is being renovated and will serve the 2011 Universidad.

The Expressway between Shanghai and Nanjing is planned to be expanded to 6+6 from current 4+4. There could be more cases, but those are the ones that come to my mind.

Overall, Chinese expressways do not have that many lanes. There are some city roads which are much wider but they are generally short and not grade separated.

It's probably a matter of a few years till monster highways are needed to link the cities within the main urban clusters.

1. The emergency lanes you mentioned are actually hard shoulders(路肩,亦称紧急停车带). They are not actual lanes.

2. When talking about expressways, many city ring roads (numbered Gxxxx) and airport expressways should be counted. The example in Fuzhou I gave refers to the section that two expressways join together. Since it's from two expressways and the two separate after a distance, it is not strictly fair to call it the widest expressway.

What's the point in posting these maps. We all know where to look for it if we wanted to see it.
