The project is being developed by the China Railway Construction Investment and Construction Group and is the largest cross-railway overpass project in North China. The construction height, jacking span and jacking weight rank second among China's cross-railway projects.
Bayannuur Road is the main arterial road in Hohhot's western urban area, running in a north-south direction. The upgraded thoroughfare will have a total length of 10.43 kilometers and is an important project for developing the city's western express road network.
The Bayannuur Road Cross-railway Interchange will cross 17 busy railway lines, including the Tangshan-Hohhot Railway and Beijing-Baotou Railway from south to north.
The interchange is expected to open to traffic at the end of 2020, promoting Hohhot's modernization and economic development.
