The Jingcheng Express Road Link (京承快速联络线, Hanyu Pinyin: Jingcheng Kuaisu Lianluoxian) is a 2 km long city express road with expressway characteristics.
At present, only the route heading out of Beijing is open to the traffic. The road heading into Beijing is interrupted as of Wanghe Bridge, due to land disputes.
The road heading out of Beijing from the outer ring of the 3rd Ring Road was originally scheduled to open on September 28, 2004. Having opened for a short while in the early afternoon, it was quickly closed due to cases where local residents, apparently unaware of the sudden opening, stranded on to the express road. It was reopened on September 30, 2004 for good.
The road leaving Beijing from the inner ring of the 3rd Ring Road exists as an extended portion of Taiyanggong Bridge. This stretch of the express road link was opened on September 1, 2005, and provides an alternative to the Badaling Expressway between the 3rd Ring Road and the 6th Ring Road.
At its beginning in Taiyanggong Bridge, lanes were expanded from three to four as of September 1, 2005, to allow traffic to access Taiyanggong exit easier.
Warning: Local residents apparently are unaware of the existence of the road. There may be people on the pavement of roads "chilling out" in the late evening in the summer. Don't run anyone over!
