The Beijing–Hong Kong–Macau Expressway (Chinese: 北京-香港-澳门高速公路), commonly referred to as the Jinggang'ao Expressway (Chinese: 京港澳高速公路) is a 2,272.65-kilometre-long expressway (1,412.16 mi)[1] that connects the Chinese cities of Beijing and Shenzhen, in Guangdong province, at the border with Hong Kong. The expressway terminates at the Huanggang Port Control Point in Shenzhen, opposite the Lok Ma Chau border control point in Hong Kong. The connection to Zhuhai at the Macau border is made using the spur line G4W Guangzhou–Macau Expressway, which branches off from the main line in Guangzhou. When the expressway was completed in October 2004,[citation needed] it was China's first completed north-south expressway route.

Route[edit]

The major cities connected by this expressway are:

Beijing

The expressway begins from Liuliqiao on the southwestern section of 3rd Ring Road. It passes through the 4th Ring Road at Yuegezhuang, and then approaches a heavily industrialised area, the Xidaokou area near Shougang. On the way out of Beijing the expressway passes through the famous Luguoqiao area, home of the Marco Polo Bridge and Wanping, marking where the Second Sino-Japanese War began in 1937. The expressway also links Beijing to the Zhoukoudian Peking Man cave, as well as Yunju Temple.

History[edit]
