The Jingtong Expressway (Hanyu Pinyin: Jingtong Kuaisu Gonglu) is an expressway with express road characteristics in Beijing, China which links central Beijing to Tongzhou District. At present, it is approximately 14 km in length.

The Jingtong Expressway gets its name by the combination of two one-character Chinese abbreviations of both Beijing and Tongzhou (Beijing -- Jing, Tongzhou -- Tong).


The Jingtong Expressway runs entirely within the confines of the municipality of Beijing.

Basic Route: Beijing (Dawang Bridge - Sihui - Gaobeidian - Shuangqiao - Huicun - Tongzhou District)

Status: The Beijing portion is complete in its entirety.

Note: The expressway is shown on maps in Beijing to link directly and seamlessly with the Jingha Expressway. This, though, is not the case in reality. Instead, several kilometres of non-expressway separate the two expressways after the main toll gate at Ximazhuang, as you enter Tongzhou. (There is another toll gate at Balidian, which takes you straight into central Tongzhou; however, it won't be directly hooked up with the Jingha expressway).


The expressway was opened in the mid-1990s from Dawang Bridge through to Tongzhou District.

At around the same time the previous Tong County was upgraded to Tongzhou District, an expressway was built to accelerate the 17 km journey from Dabeiyao on the Eastern 3rd Ring Road, site of the China World Trade Centre, to the newly renamed Tongzhou district. This expressway, known as the Jingtong Expressway, connects metropolitain Beijing with Tongzhou District.

Its construction was of great importance as it quickly sped development in eastern Beijing. The road "urbanised" suburban Tongzhou, bringing with it a steady influx of real estate projects (in particular of note).

In December 2004, a plan was unveiled to local media to interlink the 2.5 km of non-expressway between the Jingtong and Jingha expressways with an express road connection, eliminating traffic bottlenecks between Ximazhuang and Beiguan Roundabout.
