Expressways of Japan

The Kisei Expressway (紀勢自動車道 Kisei Jidōshadō?) is a national expressway in Mie Prefecture, Japan. It is owned and operated by Central Nippon Expressway Company.


The expressway is officially designated as the Hanwa Expressway Kisei Route, however this designation does not appear on any signage.[2]

The first section of the expressway was opened in 2006 (from the origin to Ōmiya-Ōdai Interchange). Another section (to Kisei-Ouchiyama Interchange) opened in 2009 and the next section (to Kii-Nagashima Interchange) is planned to open in 2013.[3] The expressway beyond this point is still in the planning stages and will be built according to the New Direct Control System.[4] Under this system, the financial burden for planning and building expressways will be shared by both the national and local governments; this differs from the established system which is carried out exclusively by the national government. Expressways built under this system are also planned to be toll-free.

The route is 2 lanes for its entire length, with some overtaking areas. The speed limit is 70 km/h.
