I've heard it is not the G56, but the Baomao expressway or G65, with the digits reversed. Or am I wrong?

Probably both

G56 is an east-west route, as its name indicates, it runs from Hangzhou to Ruili. G65 is a north-south route, connecting Baotou with Maoming. However, G65 has some significant missing mileage in this area.

Or maybe something to do with speed limits and weight of the vehicles (fast lanes/truck lanes)?
