 At the end of today's programme, let's go to southwest China's Sichuan province to take a look at the so-called "expressway in the clouds."

 
As a part of Beijing-Kunming highway, the 240km-long expressway, linking Ya'an with Xichang, was completed in 2012.
 
Mostly consisted of viaducts and tunnels, the expressway on average ascends 7.5 meters for passing every kilometer.
