The Jinan-Laoling Expressway expansion line opened to traffic in Jinan, capital of East China's Shandong province, on Sept 1.
The highway, which crosses the Yellow River, covers a length of 12.7 kilometers and has two-way four lanes and a design speed of 100 kilometers per hour.
The highway started construction in February, 2019 and took 18 months to complete, four months ahead of schedule.
It starts from the Cuizhaixi interchange between the Jinan-Laoling Expressway and Qingdao-Yinchuan Expressway and ends at the Huashan interchange of the Jinan-Guangzhou Expressway.
The highway greatly shortens the travel time between Jinan and the counties of Laoling, Ningjin, Qingyun and Linyi in Dezhou city, Shandong province.
The expansion line will more closely connect the Qingdao-Yinchuan, Beijing-Shanghai, and Jinan-Guangzhou expressways and further improve the express network in Shandong province.
