China is in the process of building the world's highest-altitude ring road in Lhasa, Tibet, the official Weibo of CCTV News reported.
The road, with a total length of nearly 100 kilometers, will feature seven tunnels and 27 bridges. Lhasa has an average elevation of more than 3,600 meters; thus, the ring road is designed with a speed limit of 60 km/h. It will take less than two hours to circle the city. The road is expected to be completed and open to traffic by June 2017.
