Encyclopedia > Jinghu Expressway

Over 1000 kilometres in length, the Jinghu Expressway was opened in the early 2000s, and connects Beijing to Shanghai. It leaves Beijing on the same route as the Jingjintang Expressway, but splits into its own expressway after Tianjin.

The nomencleature of the expressway is a combination of the two cities' (Beijing and Shanghai) names as one-character Chinese abbreviations. Jing stands for Beijing, while Hu stands for Shanghai.

The trip from Beijing to Shanghai would take nearly ten hours to complete.
