JINAN, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- An expressway linking Jinan and Tai'an in east China's Shandong Province was put into operation on Tuesday. Stretching through mountainous areas in southern Jinan along the way to Tai'an, the highway boasts enchanting views on both sides.

With a total length of 55.9 kilometers, the design speed of the expressway is 120 kilometers per hour.

The expressway will shorten the travel time between the two places to half an hour after its operation, which can effectively ease the traffic pressure and drive the economic development of areas along the expressway.
