Lushun South Road (Chinese: 旅顺南路) is one of the three highways connecting the Naval Port in Lushun, Dalian City, Liaoning Province, China, with downtown Dalian. It is the last part of China National Highway 202, which runs from Hegang to Lushun via Jiamusi, Tonghua and Dandong, and is about 32 kilometers long. .

General[edit]

During the time when the southern half of the present-day Greater Dalian was Japan's leased territory, three strategic highways were developed between Lushun and Dalian:

  • Lushun North Road
From Lushun to the north, via Shuishiying, then heading east, parallel to the Bohai Sea coast, via Dalian Airport to Dalian
  • Lushun Middle Road
From Lushun to the northeast, through the mountains, via Huanghe Road to Dalian
  • Lushun South Road
From Lushun, via Baiyin Mountain Tunnel, along the Yellow Sea coast, to Dalian

Lushun South Road is the most beautiful highway of the three, and passes through the livelier area of the city. It is about 32 kilometers long. It is the past part of China National Highway 202, which run from Hegang to Lushun via Jiamusu and Dandong.

Tunnels[edit]

On Lushun South Road, there are two tunnels. The tunnels to the direction of Lushun were completed during the Japanese period as one lane roads, while the tunnels to the direction of Dalian were made in the 21st century as two lane roads.

  • Huangnichuan Tunnel (1,330 meters, in the direction of Dalian)
  • Baiyin Mountain Tunnel (390 meters, in the direction of Dalian)
