Is there any info on the total length of expressway network by the end of 2011? And how many km of new expressways are opening in 2011?

There's no specific info for that but by 2011-2015 China Transportation Planning, the expressway length for 2015 is targeted at 108,000km. So by average, the construction projection would be like this,

YEAR LENGTH
2010 74,000km (current length)
2011 80,800km
2012 87,600km
2013 94,400km
2014 101,200km
2015 108,000km

Hope it can keep this speed

Thanks, big-dog. 30 000+km of expressways in 5 years is a little insane if you ask me. It's good that China is not delaying with the expressway network though.

speaking for their billion+ population and enourmously large territory, these 30 000 km are so little. If you make the calculation km per capita or km per km2 of territory, you will see that it is probably less than the kilometers built in any European country.

You can't calculate it just by per capita. You need to consider residential density and area as well. But generally you are right. Considering China's size this is normal. On the other hand, some other developing countries (such as another large country in Asia which is supposedly developing fast as well) are not building or planning to build nearly as much new expressways or roads and struggle with inadequate systems.

I wonder where they want to construct another 30,000 kilometers. The network in the east is considerably completed, maybe rack up a few thousand kilometers in missing links, but 30,000 kilometers? The western half of China, such as Xinjiang, Tibet and Qinghai is extremely sparsely populated. The eastern half is already well-served by numerous expressways. They do have a large number of missing links, but not 30,000 kilometers.

Is the 108 000 km even final? I thought it would not stop in 2015 at that.

Tons of beltways, city bypasses and urban expressways are to be built in the near future. Many cities have none of these yet, and soon each city will be building its system, usually hundreds of kilometers each. Also, there's huge gaps in the network, especially in Manchuria, Inner Mongolia, and southwest China (Chongqing, Sichuan, Yunnan). Frankly, another 30k is nothing.

It's cheaper not to cross the rivers.

I don't think so. They are in Uyghur language only.

The amount of expressway completed in recent months is simply stunning. Major gaps filled in Western China, tons of expressways in Northeast China, and many important bridges completed.
