I don't know about Chinese mapping services. Yahoo maps is severely outdated and Bing Maps is entirely useless.
Yeah Bing is not showing updated road map not only in China but other Asian country.

As it could be seen Chinese do not have any MW work zone safety protocol. They don’t obey based traffic rules, not to stop on emergency lane. I wouldn’t be surprised if they have very high risk on MW network.

Saw that video from beginning to end. It is amazing how the construction/maintenance crew and drivers lack the most basic safety precautions.

Shanxi to build 18 expressways

( www.chinadaily.com.cn )

Updated: 2012-03-12

Quote:
Shanxi province plans to build 18 expressways by the end of 2012, according to the Transportation Department, so it will add 1,008 kilometers of expressways in all, with 10 fully operational, and eight in partial service.



When the project is completed, the province will have 5,000 kilometers of highways in service, putting it among the top 10 of China’s provinces, in serviceable highways.



In recent years, Shanxi has been active in expressway construction, having built 43 since 2009.

The 10 that will open this year are: the Linfen north ring section of the Qixian-Linfen Expressway; the Linfen connection of the Beijing-Kunming and Qingdao-Lanzhou expressways; and the Taiyuan-Gujiao, Yuci-Qixian, Datong-Hunyuan, Hejin-Yuncheng, Taiyuan-Yangquan, Lingqiu-Shanyin, Xinzhou-Baode, and Gaoping-Lingchuan expressways, for a total of 577.4 kilometers.

The other eight in partial service are: the Linfen-Jixian Expressway, Yellow River Bridge approach to the Taiyuan-Jiaxian Expressway, the southwestern section of the Shuozhou Ring Rd, and the Tianzhen-Datong, Changzhi-Pingshun, Heshun-Yushe, Guangling-Hunyuan, and Yushe-Pingyao expressways, for a total of 430.6 kilometers.



In addition, Shanxi province plans to begin work on nine other expressways and do preparatory work on six others in 2012, so it will have 58 expressways under construction, at a total cost of 298.36 billion yuan.

big-dog, please, can you post more information and photos about the design of the second road?

I really liked how they have marked and secured the road side.

China eyes building comprehensive transport network

(Xinhua)

08:41, March 22, 2012

BEIJING, March 21 (Xinhua) -- The Chinese government on Wednesday announced a plan to further improve nationwide transportation between now and 2015.

The State Council, China's cabinet, said ten massive transportation routes crisscrossing the country will take form by 2015, as well as a high-speed railway network and a state-level expressway network.

Railways will reach all bulk commodity distribution centers and cities with a population of more than 200,000 by 2015, according to a statement released after a regular meeting of the State Council.

Meanwhile, roads will extend to nearly all towns and large villages in rural regions, the statement said.

Authorities also plan to expand shipping services to all corners of the world and construct 42 comprehensive traffic hubs across the country by 2015, the statement said.

The statement said China will stress safety, quality and good planning in its drive to build a comprehensive transportation network.

Private investors will be encouraged to invest in the construction of transportation infrastructure and facilities, the statement said.

[PRC] Ultra-Long Expressway and Highway Tunnels in China

China is going to have world's largest expressway and highway system. She will surpass USA in expressway in about 5 years, if not short. Unlike USA's flat terrain, China has much more alpine tough terrain. So there are many more ultra-long tunnels, or super-high bridges (see world's highest bridge list), or clusters of tunnels and bridges.

There are so many ultra-long tunnels in China that many people, including most of Chinese don't even know them. Here is a list of Chinese Ultra-Long Expressway and Highway Tunnels that completed or under-constructed in 2008 in Chinese

http://www.highwaytunnel.cn/Books/go...est-tunnel.pdf

The list is not complete and expanding fast, given the expressway construction speed like this

There is already a thread for Chinese expressways and I don't think a second one is warranted, but that is up to the mods...

Blatant wrong statement about US terrain... 1/3 of the Lower 48 are freaking mountains like the Rockies and the Appalachians... And we're just starting with the two major ridges.... Half of Alaska is mountainous. So is California.

That most American cities are on plain areas says nothing about what is between them.
