Opened in late September 2003, just days before October 1 - China's National Day holiday - the Jinji Expressway runs entirely within Tianjin, and links Tianjin city in the south with Ji County in the north. Hence the name Tianjin - Ji County - Jinji Expressway. The expressway runs for 104 kilometres.

Roadworks exist for parts of the expressway in summer 2005. Road conditions are slightly deteriorating.


It starts just after the Jinzhonglu exit on the Jingjintang Expressway and the Tianjin outer ring road, and heads northeast, gradually heading north, eventually crossing the Jingshen Expressway at Jinwei (Baodi North).

After this, it heads directly north toward Ji County, crossing China National Highway 102, before coming to an end at Bangxi Highway, near Ji County.

The expressway passes through Dongli District, Beichen District, Baodi County and Ji County.

The northern end is close to portions of the Great Wall of China. This very end is going to be linked up to the Jingping Expressway before 2008. The Jinji Expressway would thus form yet another passageway from Beijing to Tianjin.

Exits and Service Areas

The expressway has remarkably few exits (the total number is in the "single digits") and just "one" service area. Tolls can get expensive (although prices have recently been slashed). Additional charges apply for vehicles of non-Tianjin licence plates coming into Tianjin, waived only for military and diplomatic vehicles, as well as vehicles on emergency duty.

peed Limit and Scenery

There is a pretty uniform speed limit of 110 km/h, albeit national legislation raising it to 120 km/h (which is the speed limit it was actually "designed" for.)

The expressway cuts through a vast area of emptiness. The scenery heading south is that of plains and farmland. Remarkable also are the design of the toll gates, ranging from the fancy to the downright weird.
