Recently, the Shajing-Wuxu Highway project in Nanning has officially started. The route starts at the Shajing junction of Nanning Beltway and ends at the Wuxu west junction. It passes through Jiangnan District, National Nanning Economic and Technological Development Area and Fusui County of Chongzuo City, with a planned construction period of 3 years. Shajing-Wuxu Highway is a major project coordinated and promoted by Guangxi and is planned to be the first highway in Guangxi that allows unmanned driving. At that time, it will not only play the role as a new image and cultural passageway for Nanning, but also become a demonstration project of China-ASEAN Intelligent Transport Integration Service, thus being of great significance for improving the regional road network, relieving the transportation pressure of Nanning Wuxu International Airport, and promoting the strategy of Strengthening the Capital of Guangxi.
It is reported that the main route of the project is 25.8 kilometers in length and the designed speed is 120 kilometers per hour. The first 20.9 kilometers from the starting point of the main route to the Nayang section will be built with the two-way six-lane standard, while the 4.8 kilometers from the Nayang section to the Wuxu west junction will be built with the two-way eight-lane standard; and the newly-renovated 2.7 kilometers of Nanning Beltway will be constructed with the two-way four-lane standard. The service areas, toll stations, maintenance areas and monitoring and communication sub-centers will be built along the whole route. The total estimated investment of the project is 5.37 billion yuan and the planned construction period is 3 years.
