The reconstruction and expansion of Zhumadian-Xinyang (Henan-Hubei boundary) section of Beijing-Hong Kong-Macao expressway is an important part of the national expressway network and the main framework of Henan highway network, with a total length of 136.879km.
In December 2015, the reconstruction and expansion was completed and the two-way eight-lane traffic was realized.
Henan Provincial Communications Planning & Design Institute Co., Ltd. has undertaken the tasks of feasibility study, preliminary design and construction drawing designs, and has successively won the first prize of 2016 Henan excellent survey and design innovation award and the second prize of 2016 highway transportation excellent design award.
The design of "Reconstruction and Extension of Zhumadian-Xinyang (Henan-Hubei Boundary) Section of Beijing-Hong Kong-Macao Expressway" firmly grasped the characteristics of the expressway reconstruction and extension. On the basis of systematic detection and safety evaluation of the old road, the design principles of safety, social service, overall coordination, respect for regional characteristics and naturalness are clarified, and the waste materials of the old road were fully utilized to reduce resource consumption and environmental pollution. The project cost was well controlled and a model of "Green transportation, ecological corridor and intelligent highway" was set up.
