A 1,000-kilometer expressway linking Beijing and nearby cities in Hebei province was completed on Tuesday, which will ease traffic congestion and improve regional economic growth in the area.

The expressway linking Miyun district in Beijing and Zhuozhou in Hebei marks the completion of G95, a ring-road expressway, part of which is in the capital.

As Beijing already has six ring-roads within the city, the public has been calling the new expressway "the 7th Ring Road". However, only 38 km of the expressway goes through Beijing, with another 38 km in Tianjin, while the remaining 924 km runs through Hebei.
