Part of world’s longest cross-desert highway ready for service

Part of the world’s longest cross-desert highway is set to open at the end of this June, with the rest of the road scheduled to open in 2019.

The road will link the Chinese capital Beijing to the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. Stretching 2,540 kilometers, the highway will pass through six regions and provinces.

One stretch of this new highway is a 930-kilometer section from Linhe and Baigeda in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. It passes through the Gobi and Badain Jaran deserts, making it the longest cross-desert highway in the world.

This length is almost the same distance between Beijing and China’s former capital, Nanjing, in eastern Jiangsu Province.
