- Baojin Expressway
The Baojin Expressway (
pinyin: Baojin Gaosu Gonglu) is so named because it connects Baoding in Hebeiprovince with Tianjin.
The expressway was first built in
1995and opened to the general motoring public in mid-December of 1999. It links Baoding, Xushui, Rongchengand heads east toward Tianjin, linking Xiongxianand Bazhou.
The 129 km-long expressway is designed for a speed that, as of May 2004, is the maximum speed legally tolerated on PRC expressways -- 120 km/h. (The Tianjin part, though, has a lower speed limit of 110 km/h.)
The western part links with the
Jingshi Expressway118 kilometres after its starting point from Beijing's 3rd Ring Roadat Liuliqiao. It is not far away from the city of Baoding.
The eastern end links with the
Waihuan(Outer Ring) Road in Tianjin, which links to other expressways in the region, such as the Jingjintang Expresswayto Beijingand Tanggu, and the Jinghu Expresswayto Shanghai.
