Xinhua reported that Northwest China's Qinghai Province opened a scenic expressway after a prolonged construction aimed to minimize the impact on the forests it traverses. Running through the Beishan National Forest Park and the Cangjiaxia Provincial Forest Park, the 50 kilometer Zhalonggou-Nianbozhen Highway is dubbed as the "most beautiful road of Qinghai." It took five years to complete construction, a long process considering the country's prowess in infrastructure construction, with officials saying it is required by the increasing focus on environmental protection.

Wang Jianliang, vice head of the province's highway construction and management bureau, said that "To minimize the occupation of forested lands, over half of the highway was rerouted and some sections were turned into overpasses."
