People living in Hotan prefecture in the southern Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region

上海419论坛can travel to other parts of China along a newly opened expressway connecting th

e last prefecture in Xinjiang to the modern transportation infrastructure in the rest of the country.

The expressway, linking Shule county in Kashgar prefecture and Moyu county上海419论坛

上海419论坛女神会所way, which links Lianyungang in East China’s Jiangsu province with Horgos on the China-Kazakhstan border.

Construction of the expressway began in July 2017 and it opened on July 31. It has a designed speed of up to 120 kilometers per hour.
