Suggestions on speeding up the construction of expressways between counties
In order to achieve the high-quality and rapid growth of the county economy in Yantai City and enhance the national competitiveness of the county economy in Yantai City, representative of Yantai City People’s Congress and member of Yantai City’s Urban and Rural Environmental Protection and Construction Committee Teng Yi proposed "About Suggestions for speeding up the construction of expressways between counties".
Yantai currently has an expressway exceeding 675 kilometers, and the density of expressways is among the highest in the province. Judging from the coverage of the existing expressway network layout plan, all counties (cities, districts) except Changdao County and towns with a population of more than 200,000 have been connected to expressways, and important transportation hub nodes have achieved expressway coverage. However, from the perspective of strengthening the connection with cities (towns), except for the convenient expressway connections between Yantai and other cities, the expressways have not yet been fully connected between the other cities. The east-west expressway between Zhaoyuan and Qixia The highway channel has not yet been formed, and the north-south expressway channel between Qixia and Haiyang has not yet been formed. It is recommended to continue to improve the layout of the expressway network and accelerate the construction of expressways between counties.
