The Xuanda Expressway (宣大高速公路, Hanyu Pinyin: Xuāndà Gāosù Gōnglù; Approximate Pronunciation: "Shuen-Da Expressway"), is an expressway in China which links Xuanhua in Hebei province with Datong in Shanxi province.
The Xuanda Expressway gets its name by the combination of two one-character Chinese abbreviations of both Xuanhua and Datong (Xuanhua—Xuan, Datong—Da).
Status: The entire expressway is complete and open to traffic.
The eastern end of the expressway links with the Jingzhang Expressway to Beijing and Zhangjiakou near Xuanhua, while the western end continues as the Dayun Expressway, which runs through Taiyuan (the provincial capital of Shanxi) down to Yuncheng at the southwestern tip of Shanxi province.
