The Beijing-Urumqi Expressway, commonly referred to as the G7 Expressway, encompasses the world's longest desert highway and runs along a route connecting the two cities of Beijing and Urumqi, capital of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in northwest China.

The expressway, which opened in July 2017, slashed nearly 1,300 km of the journey from Beijing to Urumqi compared to other highways, serving as the fastest and most convenient way to enter Xinjiang from north China by road. Measuring 2,540 km long, it provides quick passage from Xinjiang's Khorgos Port to north China's Tianjin Port. It also serves as an efficient passage on the Eurasian Land Bridge linking Tianjin Port with Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
