This is what they do.One thing I can't understand from China is why are they making/renovating so much road ? At first, it seems that it is an effort to create infrastructure for border domination, and one will credit it as Chinese superiority in infrastructure development.
However, if you keep on observing, a few peculiar things keep on emerging -
I strongly think this is not just infrastructure development, but construction companies doing scams (read, sanctioning unnecessary projects from govt., and in return, bribing the Army officials who helped to sanction them).
- They are making 4-line highways where the only traffic they will get is nomads grazing their sheep once a month. I mean, if it is just for military movement, 2-lane will suffice by long-margin.
- They are renovating roads (re-pitching, making them broader), which are just 2 years old, and are in perfect condition. It is as if they are building just for the sake of building.
- Most ridiculous, they are creating dual highways, creating another one just beside one existing road, like just 40-50 meters away from the existing one, going parallel. Like, why would you need a dual, 4-lane highway in Aksai Chin for ? This is beyond just infrastructure development and just purely ridiculous.
This is prevalent in China.
Check small Chinese cities on Google Earth. Even small towns can grid system with 8-10 lane roads
Chinese growth is field by real estate and infrastructure. What is the need of HSR to Tibet?
