Sanya Loop Expressway to be put into operation ahead of Spring Festival
The commonly concerned Sanya Loop Expressway is expected to formally be put into operation ahead of Spring Festival. At present, the segment connecting the west ring expressway and Nanshan Culture Tourism Zone is to be put into operation while the east and middle segments are under earthwork such as filling roadbeds and constructing lighting for parts of tunnels.
Its construction started in 2008 and it is one of the major national expressway projects laid out by the Ministry of Transport connecting Heilongjiang Tongjiang City and Sanya City as well as an important project for the Sanya infrastructures.
The project starts from Damao Village of Jiyang County, passing through Lizhigou Farmland to connect with the east and west ring expressways to form a transport circle. Its total length is 30.46 kilometers, constructed with four lanes in two directions.
Its completion will greatly relieve present traffic tension and vehicles from the city center can directly access major scenic spots like Yalong Bay, Tianyahaijiao Resort and Nanshan Culture Tourism Zone.
