The new road project has a length of 55.865 kilometers, it starts in Chongshan Town, Wuzhishan city and ends in the Haitang bay area of Sanya to the south.

The new two way 4 lane expressway has a carriage speed of 100km/h and will shorten the journey from Sanya to Baoting by 30 minutes.

Along the Wuzhishan – Baoting section, lies one of the longest tunnels of the Hainan road network with a total length of almost 5 kilometres.
