The expansion of the Heilongjiang section of the Beijing-Harbin Expressway was successfully completed and opened to traffic on Oct 30, following a 29-month construction period starting in May 2019.

The 70.96-kilometer expressway starts from the Lalinhe Bridge at the border between Heilongjiang province and Jilin province, passing through Shuangcheng district, Pingfang New Zone and Nangang district, before finally arriving at Xuefu Road in the core urban area of Harbin.

The width of the roadbed was increased from 28 meters to 42 meters, and the four-lane road was converted to eight lanes, increasing traffic capacity.

The completion of the project is a milestone for Heilongjiang's efforts to improve its expressways.

It is expected to play an essential role in helping build Harbin into a comprehensive transportation hub in Northeast China.
