SHANTOU, July 10 (Xinhua) -- The Shantou-Jiexi expressway, linking Shantou City and Jiexi County in south China's Guangdong Province, is under construction.

With a length of 86.5 kilometers, the expressway will further shorten the road distance between the eastern part of Guangdong and the Pearl River Delta, and strengthen economic ties between the two regions.
