The longest coastal highway in China, the Liaoning Coastal Highway around the Bohai and Yellow Seas, has entered its final construction phase. The highway, with a total length of over 1,443 kilometers, will open to traffic in September 2009.

A total of 13.3 billion yuan has been invested in the highway, which looks like a "z" on the map. It starts from Dandong in the east, passes through Jinzhou, Panjin, Yingkou and Dalian, and finally reaches Suizhong County of Huludao city in the west. The six coastal cities of Liaoning Province will be connected by the highway.

Reporters learned that when the Liaoning Coastal Highway around the Bohai Sea and Yellow Seas is complete, it will connect 25 ports of different sizes, 228 industrial parks and 133 scenic spots. The highway will then join the dense network of expressways in the interior of Liaoning Province, becoming a main artery of the Bohai Rim Economic Circle, fueling the development and opening-up of coastal regions.
