New highway linking Lhasa to Gonggar Airport to be built
  2009-Aug-12 Wed
Tibet plans to build a highway linking Lhasa City to the Gonggar Airport this year, according to the Transportation Department of Tibet.

File photo shows Liuwu Overpass, which is the first overpass of Lhasa, capital of Tibet Autonomous Region, photo from Xinhua.

The road will run from the Lhasa Railway Station, along the south bank of the Lhasa River, through the Caina Township in Qushui County, and terminate between the north entrance of the Gala Mountain Tunnel and the south bridge head of Lhasa River Bridge.

The two-way, four-lane road will be 37.86 km long and completed at a total cost of 1.54 billion yuan RMB.

The current road from Lhasa to the Gonggar Airport is mostly part of the National Route 318. The road surface of the section has been damaged seriously, with the result that the section is not able to meet the need of tranportation. 

Upon completion, the new highway is expected to greatly cut the time of traveling from the city center to the airport.
