China Tibet's first express highway — the Lhasa-Gongga airport-exclusive expressway — will be officially open to traffic in the coming days.

The construction of the Lhasa-Gongga airport-exclusive highway was officially launched on April 2009. Investments in the highway totaled more than 1.5 billion yuan.

The highway will curtail the time spent from downtown Lhasa to the Gongga airport from one hour to half an hour. There would be no tolls on the highway.
