The story of Chenggong road opening , my personal check from Millennium xiamen hotel to xiamen airport

Few days ago my blog mentioned the Xiamen Chenggong road's official opening , on 25th Sep,2009 , that was yesterday , I made the first trip with some friends to time exactly how good it is.

We started from the hotel, Millennium Harbourview Hotel Xiamen , immediately on the Yanwu Bridge , that was beautiful.

And the first tunnel , the Wanshishan tunnel (Ten-thousand-rock tunnel) , took us 5-6 minutes

When we came out of the tunnel , a cozy high-speed road laying in front of us.

Then here we are , the most important tunnel , Wuchun Tunnel . To my surprise , the block was still there , we were told it would be open at night . So we decided to come the second day.

26Sep,2009 , 12:24 , bright sun shine , we started from the Millennium Harbourview Hotel Xiamen again to take our Chenggong Virgin trip. The name means Success , originated from a great general few hundreds years ago ,Zheng chenggong , who was very famous in Chinese history to protect Both Xiamen and Taiwan from outside intruder. ( That time probably Netherlands was the biggest intruder , but that was history, we are friends now).

I would rather say Xiamen Marathon picks up the best road in the world, we are driving on the world's best marathon line.

here we go , the real entrance of Chenggong Road Xiamen

This time we were not disappointed , some cars were already on the road , to show us it has been opened

When we came out of the 3.7km Wuchun tunnel , just 11 minutes passed from our start, unbelievable. Our average speed is around 60-70 km/h. And the traffic-free road makde me feel comfortable

When we arrived at the entrance of the Xiamen airport , it was 12:40 , 16 minutes.

And the sky was so beautiful

exact 12:44 , we touched the airport arrival lounge area

20 minutes at 65km/h speed through the Chenggong road for its traffic free. And immediately we returned at little higher speed , as the speed limit on the Chenggong road is from 70 to 80 km/h. It took us 15 minutes to return to the hotel,
Millennium Harbourview Hotel Xiamen

Just a cozy trip , bye bye the old time when we have to wait a lot of traffic lights , blessed theMillennium Harbourview Hotel Xiamen
