The Reconstruction and Extension Project of Nanchang-Jiujiang Expressway in Full Swing


As one of the busiest expressways in Jiangxi Province, the reconstruction and extension project of Nanchang-Jiujiang Expressway, with tremendous attention, launched in July, 2016, will be completed in October, 2019. So far, 4.974 billion Yuan has been invested for the foregoing project with sub-grade earthwork, bridge and culverts, and tunnels of the broaden pavement having been all done. The upper base of the pavement has been basically completed while more than 90 percent of the bottom base has been finished. At present, the newly broaden pavement has been put into use, and the original pavement is in full construction. With a total investment of 6.524 billion Yuan and the designed speed of 100 km/h , the foregoing project is 87.819 km in length.  

Nanchang-Jiujiang Expressway is an important part of Fuzhou-Yinchuang National Expressway, as well as a significant part of the backbone of the expressway network influencing the surrounding areas. The original one was put into use in 1996 with the design of four-lane dual carriageway. With the development of society and economy, the volume of traffic increased quickly. For example, the daily sectional flow of the traffic in the year 2015 reached 45,000 units, and surpassed 100,000 units during important holidays, far overpassing the bearing capacity of the expressway.
