I am not impressed by the Shenshan Expressway (深汕高速公路), it is no longer very express. It took me over 9 hours from Guangzhou to Shantou yesterday, where it usually takes 5 1/2. It was crawling all the way down. A tip for our transport managers: MAKE THE RAILWAY DIRECT, AND PUT MORE TRAINS ON. Grr.
I don’t want to hear any excuses about it being nearly New Year. In a few years it’ll be like that every day.
