A planned expressway linking Wudang district in Guiyang city to Changshun county in the Qiannan Bouyei and Miao autonomous prefecture -- in Southwest China's Guizhou province -- recently got the green light from the Guizhou Department of Transport.
The expressway is not only a key section of the Guizhou province's highway network, but also an important part of the Outer Ring Expressway in Guiyang city.
It has a design speed of 100 kilometers per hour and will take three years to build.
The expressway starts at Duimenzhai of Yangchang Town in Wudang district, passes through Zhazuo, Xiuwen, Gubao, Weicheng, Anliu, Wangjiazhai, Tianba, Shizi, Xiayun and Pingba and finally ends in Guangshun town in Changshun county.
The length of the expressway is 114.87 kilometers and a total of 13 interchanges will be set up along the thoroughfare, including at Yangchang West, Taoyuan, Zhazuo and at Xiuwen North.
Meanwhile, seven interconnection roadways totaling 15.23 km will be constructed. Of these, the Taoyuan connecting road will be 3.9 km long, the Gubao connecting road line will stretch 0.99 km and Anliu road will be 6.21 km in length.
