The Beijing–Shanghai Expressway or Jinghu Expressway is a major road system of China, linking the capital Beijing in the north to Shanghai on the central coast. It extends over 1000 kilometres in length, and was opened in the early 2000s. It leaves Beijing on the same route as the Jingjintang Expressway, but splits into its own roadway after the city of Tianjin.
There is a plan underway to start the entire Jinghu Expressway from Beijing instead of the current situation (where the real expressway begins in Tianjin).
