Xuanda Expressway

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).

Route[edit]

Basic Route: Junction with China Expwy G6 sign with name.svg G7 Jingla Expressway at Xuanhua - Yangyuan at Shanxi Border where it becomes Shanxi Expwy S30 sign no name.svg S30 Sunyou Expressway

The eastern end of the expressway links with the Jingzhang Expressway to Beijing and Zhangjiakou near Xuanhua, while the western end continues as the Sunyou Expressway, which keeps going to Datong.
