This paper presents an analysis of the effects of the Hangzhou-Ningbo expressway (in Zhejiang Province of the People's Republic of China) on the region's economic development. An econometric model shows the estimated contributions attributable to the expressway have increased year by year. And statistical data indicate that the Hangzhou-Ningbo expressway has promoted to some extent the region's economic development in various aspects.
