This part of the extended Lianhuachi West Road is extremely straight (apart from the section near Yamenkou Bridge). As a result, it is easy for drivers to speed on this part of the express road.
The slip roads leading to the 4th Ring Road are very short. When the road opened on October 15, 2005, tyre marks could be observed just west of Nanshawo Bridge, as cars headed for the 4th Ring Road braked just short of the tiny inlet. By late October, new signs were put into place 400, 300 and 200 meters west of the bridge, which solved the problem.
Traffic leaving Beijing is considerably lighter on this part of the extended Lianhuachi West Road. Traffic into Beijing is even lighter.
