Jingcheng expressway 2 - Coppermine - 5191.JPG
Jingcheng expressway 2

On the long and rather empty stretch from the third ring road out towards chengde, these flyovers mark the interchange with the fourth ring road. The green signs seen on the top left corner (green meaning motorway, unlike the UK) warn of the exit.

Odd sign - Coppermine - 5189.JPG
Odd sign

An odd sign on Beijing's third ring road, this sign is usually used in rural roads warning of tight mountain curves, not on big urban motorway class roads warning of a slight curve. Pus, how many people would actually notice this miniscule sign?

Typical third ring signage - Coppermine - 5188.JPG
Typical third ring signage

Typical local direction signage on the third ring road. The signs are usually completely blue with destinations written in Pinyin, and newer signs which in my opinion are easier to use have been installed prior to the numbering of the Ring Road's junctions.

Third ring side road

Turning towards the third ring road from one of the numerous junctions, the side road is uniquely empty. The ring road mainline can be seen coming down from the flyover to the left, with an entrance and exit slightly forward.

Third ring road exit

This image is taken from a flyover on the third ring road of Beijing over the old airport road. The signs ahead are directing to the Airport Expressway exit, which was constructed on a flyover prior to the junction so traffic heading towards the airport does not have to wait in the qeues usually forming in that area.

Jingcheng expressway 1

Heading northbound on the rather new Jingcheng expressway, which is meant to connect Beijing with the city of Chengde. Though the road is far from complete, it does manage to have some impressive interchanges, this one with the fourth ring road.
